Authorities in the island district of Ly Son, a famous tourist
site in the central province of Quang Ngai Province, have issued a code of
conduct for the tourism industry, including dos and don’ts for local residents,
travellers and service providers.
Locals are encouraged not to use plastic bags or cheat visitors by taking
advantage of local knowledge. They are not allowed to consume, trade or use
banned substances or wild animals.
Business owners are required to sell at the same prices to both Vietnamese and
foreign customers and not inflate prices during times of high demand.
Visitors to the island need to strictly comply with laws, respect local customs
and traditions and drink responsibly when consuming beer or alcohol at eateries.
They are also advised to wear suitable clothes at places of worship and during
sacred festivals and act civilly in public places, especially sanctuaries.
The rules are slated to take effect in November.
