Vietnam tourismVietnam is establishing tourist support centers all over the country to help handle problems tourists might encounter during their visit. According to the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism (VNAT), the support centers will have a hotline number around the clock and staff who speak foreign languages.

The hotline number, which is tentatively 119, will be soon announced so that tourists can call when they have any problems. The establishment of tourist support centers in localities having the high number of tourists received consent from former Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Thien Nhan at a meeting with relevant agencies in mid-2013 on ensuring safety for tourists.

Cities like Danang and Ho Chi Minh City have taken many measures to protect tourists but there are still complaints about tourists being disturbed and robbed. The Prime Minister has recently approved a decree on administrative fines, under which those disturbing and harassing tourists into buying products and services will be fined 1 to 3 million dong ($50 to $142).

According to VNAT, Vietnam will welcome around 7.4 million international tourists this year, 200,000 higher than the year’s target.

Besides, Ho CHi Minh CIty is preparing to welcome the four millionth tourist coming to the city and expects to have around 4.1 million international arrivals this year, according to the city’s Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism.
