HÀ NỘI — Local authorities and travel companies are determined to work together to build non-smoking tourist destinations, restaurants and hotels in Hà Nội.
They discussed the harm of smoking during a conference hosted on Thursday in the capital city by the Hà Nội Tourism Association.
Nguyễn Mạnh Thản, chairman of the association, said that in recent years, non-smoking tourism has been developed in many cities such as Hà Nội, Hạ Long, Hội An, Nha Trang and Đà Nẵng.
“We plan to carry out more campaigns at popular tourist spots in Hà Nội such as Ngọc Sơn Temple, Văn Miếu-Quốc Tử Giám and Thăng Long Royal Citadel.”
“We call on people to stop smoking to protect people’s health, keep the public environment clean and build a civilised society and a successful tourism industry.” — VNS
