According to TTXVN, the functional units will inspect star-rated tourist accommodation establishments in some key tourist areas across the country; handle tourist accommodation facilities that promote false advertising, misrepresent their star rating, or promote a star rating without proper recognition from competent authorities.

The National Tourism Administration will cooperate with the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism’s Inspectorate and local tourism management departments to inspect and monitor some key tourist areas’ development.
The inspections will be carried out in all three regions, including the North (Hanoi, Ninh Binh, Thanh Hoa, Nghe An), Central (Da Nang, Khanh Hoa, Quang Nam), and South (Binh Thuan, Ho Chi Minh City, Ba Ria – Vung Tau, Kien Giang).
In particular, the units will also check and review the promotion of star-rated tourist accommodation establishments on social networking sites and online booking systems such as Agoda.com, Booking.com, Traveloka.com, Facebook, Zalo, etc.
