Hanoi to go smoke free
The city’s Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism will promote smoke-free restaurants and hotels this year.
Department vice director, Mai Tien Dung, said the agency would encourage restaurants and hotels not to allow smoking in public areas and to eventually ban smoking throughout premises including guest rooms.
“The move will improve the city’s image in visitors’ eyes and also conform to the nation’s Law on Tobacco Harm-Reduction.”
WorldHospital Organisation’s Office in Hanoi representative, Le Duc Truong, added that many countries banned smoking in restaurants and hotels to ensure a healthy environment. Already, a few hotels Vietnam have adopted similar measures on their own.
Currently, the city has 317 hotels, six hostels, five tourist apartment blocks and four luxury apartment blocks offering around 16,000 rooms.
Last year, the city received 2.58 million foreign visitors an increase of 22.9% over 2012 and nearly 14 million domestic visitors up 13%.
This year, Hanoi should welcome 2.8 million international tourists and 15 million domestic travellers.
