VTV.vn - ​The municipal Department of Information and Communications has asked hotels, travel companies, tourism providers and tourist site managers to not use terms such as China Beach or South China Sea.

Those who print or distribute similar publications will be punished, the department said. Local press outlets have been directed to raise public awareness of the issue. Earlier, an English-written poster introducing local places of interest from the Jeep Tours company went viral on social media. It showed a map describing Danang’s beach as China Beach. Police from the city’s Ngu Hanh Son District and relevant agencies seized the posters and are conducting investigations.
