The administration in the famed tourist city of Da Lat in Vietnam’s Central Highlands launched free Wi-Fi networks across its inner areas on Monday as a step toward transforming it into a ‘smart city.’

The municipal Wi-Fi networks are accessible at 69 hotspots in central tourist attractions, including the city flower park, Hoa Binh Market and Lam Vien Square.

The systems, with the SSIDs or names of Dalat_Wifi_Free and Dalat-MegaNet Free, can serve 50,000 users at the same time and are expected to cover the entire city in the coming time.

The networks were unveiled at a local exhibition of technological solutions for building Da Lat as a smart city.

The government during the event also rolled out a smartphone app called Dalatcity, which provides information about the city’s places of interest, accommodation and eateries with delicious food.

Another component in constructing a smart city currently in use is an intelligent street lighting system that can save 60-70 percent on electricity use and is connected with the free Wi-Fi networks and security cameras.
