On July 20, Vice Chairwoman of HCMC People’s Committee Nguyen Thi Hong chaired a meeting on establishment of Office of Tourism Information and Assistance under HCMC Tourism Promotion Center to offer information, consultancy and security service for tourists.
In recent years, HCMC Tourism sector has made big efforts in remaining its role as a dynamic tourism center of the whole country, a connection point of many tourist products in the South. However, reality shows that there still exist many shortcomings in order and security including robbery, clinging on to tourists, raising prices of tourist products and services with complete impunity. Besides, there are still limitations in offering information of tourist products, services for visitors.
According to Mrs. Nguyen Thi Hong, the establishment of Office of Tourism Information and Assistance is very necessary to meet the increasing demand of visitors in HCMC. The main mission of this office is to provide information, consultancy and assistance services related to security issues such as damaged assets, loss of personal papers, etc.
According to HCMC Tourism Department, the office will be located at 140 Nguyen Dinh Chieu, Ward 6, District 3, HCMC. This office will coordinate with switchboard 1087 to offer assistance on tourists’ demands. In addition, HCMC Tourism Department will open some information stations located at Tan Son Nhat international and domestic airports, Tan Binh District; Lot B of 23/9 park, District 1; Nguyen Hue Pedestrian street, District 1. At first, HCMC Tourism Department will open 2 pilot stations in center of HCMC and Tan Son Nhat Airport.
