New rules make Hoi An more tourist-friendly

05/06/2006 (GMT+7) New rules make Hoi An more tourist-friendly

Restaurants and bars in the Hoi An Old Quarter and on Bach Dang Street will stay open all night instead of closing at 11pm according to revised local laws on tourism.

In a recent seminar on solutions to increase the service quality in the city held on June 1, Mr Le Van Giang, Chairman of the Hoi An People’s Committee, announced that in its efforts to attract more tourists the city needs to amend its laws. 

From now on, tourists won’t be charged sightseeing fees if they go to the old quarter just for shopping, dining, or to see the Cau Bridge. 

To encourage travel agents and tourism enterprises, the City People’s Committee has given a nod for hotels of three-stars and upwards to start new services, like massage, sauna and mud baths. Hotels not in prime locations may also offer karaoke.  

Giang also promised that he would ask city law enforcement authorities to better police fraud, keep heavy equipment from operating on tourist streets, and reduce disturbances caused by delayed construction projects.

Many tourism companies have praised the city’s leaders and consider the new regulations a positive step towards sustainable development.
