Vietnamese guide fined for not handling foreign tourists properly

HCMC – A Vietnamese tour guide has been fined VND12.5 million for failing to properly supervise foreign tourists, letting an illegal Chinese guide give a false presentation on Vietnamese history, Tuoi Tre Online reports.

Tran Chi Cuong, deputy director of the Danang Department of Tourism, said the Chinese woman who falsely presented Vietnamese history at the Danang Museum on February 26 has been identified as Wang Jihong. She is seen in a video saying to a group of four Chinese tourists that traditional Vietnamese “ao dai” originated from a Chinese dress known cheongsam, and Vietnam belonged to China in the past.

This woman, however, already left Vietnam a month ago.

Cuong’s tourism department sent a document to the Immigration Department under the Ministry of Public Security to list Wang Jihong as ineligible for entry into Vietnam, Cuong said.

The department also sent a document to the Danang Department of Public Security asking this department to handle Evivatour’s Danang branch for not performing a proper role as entry guarantor for these foreign tourists, said Cuong.

As identified by the department, the Vietnamese guide in charge of the group of four Chinese tourists was Tran A Hung, and these tourists were arranged a tour to Vietnam by Uyen Hung 79 Travel Limited Co. This company was also fined VND4 million for involvement in the case.

A video posted on social media showed a Chinese woman without a proper guide tag giving a presentation to a group of Chinese tourists as they were standing in front of a wardrobe of Vietnamese “ao dai” at the Danang Museum.
