HCMC – A group of Chinese tourists wearing T-shirts printed with the Chinese map having an Ox’s tongue line, or a nine-dash line, was recently intercepted after entry at Cam Ranh International Airport and requested to change their T-shirts.

Nguyen Thi Le Thanh, deputy director of the Khanh Hoa Department of Tourism, confirmed the information on May 14.

Thanh cited Bui Quoc Tuan, a representative of Vietnam Aladin Travel and Trading Co Ltd, as saying that the company brought those Chinese into Vietnam but did not know what they were wearing inside their jackets. The company handed over the T-shirts to authorities before the tourists traveled to Nha Trang City.

The provincial Department of Tourism is coordinating with relevant agencies to conduct an investigation into the case to establish the motive of such visitors and whether the tour operator knew of the violation in advance or not.

Photos of the Chinese tourists at an airport supposed to be Cam Ranh International Airport have spread on social media. According to local media, these tourists arrived in Cam Ranh International Airport at 08:35 p.m. on May 13.

News website Zing.vn quoted a representative of Cam Ranh International Airport as saying that these tourists were wearing jackets in the immigration process but after they were admitted to the country, they took off their jackets. The airport authority immediately asked the Chinese to change their T-shirts.
