Electric cars for Hanoi tourists

Dong Xuan Joint Stock Co plans to import electric cars for tourists visiting Hanoi this year.

Tours will be conducted in five urban districts – Hoan Kiem, Ba Dinh, Tay Ho, Dong Da and Hai Ba Trung.

The company initially plans to offer two guided tours for a trial period. The first will take in cultural sites such as the Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum, Tran Quoc Pagoda, Van Mieu (Temple of Literature) and Ngoc Son Temple. The second will take tourists along the Hong (Red) River and around West Lake.

More than 7,000 visitors travelled by electric car around Hoan Kiem Lake and the Old Quarter in Hanoi over the recent Lunar New Year Festival, according to Do Xuan Thuy, director of the Dong Xuan Company.

Nguyen Manh Hung, chairman of the Vietnam Auto Transportation Association, said the tour operator should buy small cars that are more suitable to the narrow streets of the Old Quarter.
