Tourism authorities in Ho Chi Minh City have issued a new “code of conduct” aimed at improving the behaviour of tourists, the Vietnam News Agency (VNA) reports.
To be distributed to domestic and international tourists at hotels, tour agencies and Tan Son Nhat International Airport, the leaflet urges visitors to respect local culture, protect the environment and help elderly and disabled people.
Specifically, it warns against disrespecting cultural and historical landmarks and relics, and not to leave food and beverage litter in the city. The leaflet is available in Vietnamese, English, Chinese, Korean and Russian.
The HCMC initiative follows the launch of similar codes of conduct in Danang and Nha Trang, and the scheme is also expected to be introduced in Hanoi and Hoi An in future.
