Visitors to Ho Chi Minh City can now search for where to go and what to do at a brand new tourist assistance station downtown.
The station, in front of the Opera House, has a touch screen of 47 inches that can connect to Google Maps and display information of hotels, restaurants, café and shopping places nearby.
It also allows tourists to search for entertainment activities in the city, promotion programs and new government policies.
Information is presented in Vietnamese and English.
Ho Chi Minh City Post Office and Hanoi-based company Le Digital plan to launch around 200 stations like this in the next two years.
The next stations will be soon installed in front of the Central Post Office, the Youth Culture House, and Saigon Hospital, all in District 1.
Huynh Quang Liem, director of Vietnam Post and Telecommunication Group in HCMC, said the stations has a high-speed Internet connection.
Liem said people can also make emergency calls to 113 for police, 114 for firefighters and 115 for ambulance.
If one needs to use their own devices, they can still come to the stations and enjoy free wifi in a 100-meter radius, he said.
