Saigontourist Travel Services Co. on Thursday, October 27, 2011 opened an information and consulting service center to provide international tourists with free travel information and consulting services in Chinese, English and French.
Saigontourist’s center provides essential information such as tourist attractions and accommodation, and offers free maps of HCMC and travel brochures. It is open from 7:30 a.m to 7:30 p.m. daily.
Large numbers of overseas visitors often ask for further information about their trips in Vietnam at Saigontourist’s headquarters, which prompted the firm to set up the center.
Besides information, Saigontourist aims to attract curious foreigners to book tour packages at the center.
HCMC welcomes over three million visitors annually but the city has only a few high-quality travel information centers operated by local travel agencies.
