Vietnam’s Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism has issued a code of conduct for international and domestic tourists, tour operators and locals at tourism spots.
The code of conduct includes rules that tourists should obey such as standing in line and respecting local customs and culture.
On January 5, 2017, the Department of Tourism of Vietnam’s southern Ho Chi Minh City also released a code of conduct for domestic and foreign tourists in an effort to improve the reputation of the city.
Last year, similar rules were released in several other localities, including central Da Nang and south central Nha Trang, capital Hanoi and ancient Hoi An cities.
According to Vietnam’s General Statistics Office, in the first two months of 2017, Vietnam received over 2.2 million international visitors, up 33 percent year-on-year.
The country is expected to receive 11.5 million foreign visitors and 66 million domestic travelers, generating 460 trillion Vietnamese dong (20.3 billion U.S. dollars) this year.
