Tourism firm may be shut down after Chinese client burns Vietnamese money
The Chinese man who has been accused of burning Vietnamese money in Da Nang on June 14, 2016. Photo: Vo Van Trung Da Nang authorities said Tuesday that they want to shut down a local tourism firm after one of its clients from China burned Vietnamese money at a bar in the city last week. Tran Chi Cuong, vice director of Da Nang Tourism Department, told the media that the Landscape Trading and Tourism Company on Tran Phu Street will be punished. Cuong said his agency will advise the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism to revoke Landscape’s license. The case happened on June 14 at TV Club when a group of Chinese tourists argued with the staff. A bar's spokesperson said the group wanted to pay in yuan, claiming that they had spent all Vietnamese money. After being allowed to pay in yuan, a Chinese man suddenly took out a VND200,000 bill, lit it and threw it at a waitress before quickly leaving in a taxi. Investigation found the group was traveling in Da Nang with Landscape. The company obtained a license to organize tours for foreign tourists last December. The group of 25 Chinese tourists visited the central city from June 12-16 and they did not have a tour guide for most of the time. The tourism department has filed the company’s violations, including lack of contracts with the tourists and changing the itineraries. Cuong said his agency will issue fines of VND30 million (US$1,350) in total against the violations this week. He said there may also be a ban on the Chinese tourist. In Vietnam, destroying money can be fined up to VND15 million ($672). Read on the original site
