The People’s Committee of Nha Trang City in Khanh Hoa Province, south-central Vietnam announced on Monday that it had imposed multiple administrative penalties on a travel company after that firm let hundreds of Chinese tourists wave Chinese national flags while singing during a recent event in the coastal city.

Hoang Thanh Nha Trang Tourism Service Trading Company Limited, located in Phuoc Long Ward, Nha Trang, was fined a total of VND 51.5 million (US$2,023) for four administrative violations.

These violations include failing to include all required contents in the travel contract and tour program, employing tour guides without proper labor contracts or affiliation with recognized tourism organizations, and failing to manage tourists according to the agreed tour program.

Previously, several social media clips surfaced of numerous foreigners waving Chinese national flags and singing at Ana Marina Nha Trang, a marina on Nguyen Co Thach Street in Nha Trang City. 

Alerted to this occurrence, the Khanh Hoa Department of Tourism promptly formed a team to investigate the case.

According to the inspection report, Hoang Thanh Nha Trang Company hired an agency to organize a performance event for a Chinese tourist group at the swimming pool stage of Ana Marina Nha Trang from 5:45 pm to 7:00 pm on June 7.

On June 13, the People’s Committee of Khanh Hoa Province issued an official directive instructing the provincial Department of Tourism and the Department of Culture and Sports to guide resort service providers and event organizers in the area to strictly adhere to legal regulations when arranging events and artistic performances involving national flags, symbols, and emblems of foreign countries for international tourists.
