An employee at Nha Trang Tourist Pier in Khanh Hoa Province, south-central Vietnam picked up a handbag and returned it to its owner, identified as a South Korean tourist, on Tuesday while on duty.

Tran Van Phu, head of the pier management board, shared on Wednesday afternoon that Quynh discovered the handbag left on a chair and quickly took action.

She announced the lost item through a loudspeaker, seeking the owner.

A South Korean tourist promptly responded to Quynh's call and was reunited with his belongings in front of tour guides and a crowd of visitors, Phu confirmed.

“I am so glad to see the handbag reunited with its owner. This is my responsibility toward tourists,” Quynh said with a sense of pride and dedication.

Relieved to find his lost belongings, which contained over VND6 million (US$246.2) in cash and his personal documents, the South Korean man expressed his deep gratitude to Quynh.

In November, two employees at the pier picked up some belongings and returned them to their owners, Phu recounted.

Pham Thi Thuy demonstrated commendable integrity by retrieving a wallet and assets valued at VND80 million ($3,280).

Another staff member, Nguyen Van Dung, performed a noteworthy act by finding a handbag containing $800 in cash and various important documents, and promptly returning it to its rightful owner.
