Vietnamese tour operator defies fine over stranded Taiwanese tourists

February 16, 2024

A Vietnamese tour operator has defied local tourism authorities’ decision to fine them VND30 million (US$1,224) regarding a case in which nearly 300 Taiwanese tourists were left stranded on Phu Quoc Island off Kien Giang Province, located in southern Vietnam. Minh expressed complete dissatisfaction, stating that the incident had tarnished the company’s reputation and the image of Phu Quoc tourism. However, a group of nearly 300 Taiwanese tourists still arrived at Phu Quoc on Friday last week and found themselves stranded there. However, the Kien Giang Department of Tourism singled out Winner International Travel for violations in the travel service business. Upon the unexpected arrival of the nearly 300 Taiwanese tourists, Winner International Travel still provided services, including transportation and hotel bookings, and requested an additional payment of $720 per person.
