The maps will be delivered at ticket outlets and hotels across Hoi An and with theses maps, tourists will find it easy to find 52 popular tourist spots in the centre of the old quarter in Hoi An.

At a meeting of the Hoi An Tourism Association on March 6, a representative from UNESCO said that the free map-delivery-project aims to provide travellers to Vietnam tour with useful and precise information on local tourism spots as well as attract more tourists to the ancient city.
