Transport firms in the central city have agreed to install a supervision camera system on buses to boost security for tourists participating in tour services in Da Nang.

Vice chairman of the city’s people’s committee Đặng Việt Dũng said the supervision camera system aims to give more protection for the assets of tourists on all 45-seat coaches and buses this year. He said the camera system would help limit wrong actions and communications on the history and information of Việt Nam among local and foreign tour guides.

As planned, 40 transport companies will spend US$100,000 to install cameras on 576 buses working in tourism from August to September of 2018. The department said more than 2,200 cars have been registered as tourist transport vehicles, of which 576 were 45-seat buses

Da Nang also plans to establish a tourism police force as a pilot project by 2020 to deal with common problems – harassment, traffic, emergencies, support and security – for tourists, especially foreign tourists.
