Another electric car service for tourism is scheduled to go into operation at Tay Ho district, Hanoi on Sep 2 to mark National Independence Day.

Some 20 electric cars will take visitors for sightseeing around West Lake and other famous landscapes including different pagodas, communal houses, temples and parks, said the state-owned Tay Ho company, the operator of the project.

Since June 2010, the tourist route in Hoan Kiem district operated by the Dong Xuan Joint Stock company has run two tour routes each day. One rolls through trade streets and Dong Xuan market and the latter takes visitors to streets famous for their food and traditional trade as well as the historical sites of Ngoc Son temple, Kim Ngan communal house and the Temple of the Le Kings./.
