The government and people of Hue are building and expanding hundreds of free WC for tourists to join hands to build Hue's tourism environment "Civilized - Friendly - Safe - Identity Rich".
In order to support tourists when visiting and traveling in Hue, Hue City has recently cooperated with the Department of Tourism and the Tourism Association of Thua Thien Hue province to organize the launching ceremony of the Hue Tourism Environment Building Program "Civilization - Friendly - Safety - Identity Rich". In particular, the development of free WC for visitors is the first activity to be implemented.
Specifically, from the end of 2022 until now, Hue city has been investing in 5 new toilets in the areas of Nam Xuong, Nam Thang, Truong Tien Bridge, and Me Harbor, and at the same time, closely directing the improvement of the quality of existing public toilets.
In addition, the city has directed the Municipal Committee for Mass Mobilization to preside over and coordinate with the city's departments, branches and localities to launch the campaign "Free WC for tourists". Up to now, Hue City has mobilized 310 WC located on 163 routes of central wards that regularly participate in many tourism activities. It is expected that between now and before the opening of the 2023 Traditional Craft Festival on April 28, there will be 500 free WC for visitors.
Previously, on April 4/2017, Thua Thien-Hue province implemented a program "Socialization of public toilets for tourists" with good effects on visitors. At that time, it was not difficult for visitors to Hue to find signs indicating "WC Free Use" along the main roads of the city such as Le Loi, Nguyen Hue, Pham Ngu Lao, To Huu, Hung Vuong, Ton Duc Thang, Ly Thuong Kiet, Le Quy Don... Many restaurants, hotels, cafes, and state agencies... also hang signs "WC Free Use". The above activities have contributed to improving the tourism environment in Hue, making Hue more friendly in the eyes of tourists.
