HÀ NỘI — The Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism has issued a code of conduct for both local and foreign tourists that includes 20 points of etiquette.

It also reminds service providers that they should follow professional and ethical standards when serving tourists.

Among the guidelines for tourists are recommendations for queuing, appropriate dressing and responsible drinking.

Tourists are also urged to obey local laws and not consume wildlife products.

Vietnamese travelling abroad are asked to follow the same etiquette.

Officials said the code of conduct only serves as a guide and does not replace specific regulations that legally deal with public misdemeanours.

Just a few weeks ago HCM City published its own code for tourists. The code, accompanied by a PSA video, has sparked some controversy and debate online with many criticising the way foreigners are depicted. — VNS
