Boat services bloom in Hoi An

During a meeting on March 13, Nguyen Van Son, vice chairman of Hoi An, said that the number of tourists using boats had increased sharply and the number of boats had also surged out of control. In response the authorities will remove unregistered boats.

"There must be a rule for everyone to work on shifts instead of fighting against each other over the tourists," Son said.

There are 170 boats operating on Hoai River, 100 boats belong to Minh An Ward.
