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.”
