The district of Hoan Kiem in central Hanoi and the Dong Xuan Joint Stock Company will introduce two inner city tours using battery-charged electric cars.

The city tours are designed to take visitors around places of interest in Hanoi ’s old quarter, according to the developers.

The first tour will travel through the trade streets and the capital city’s biggest wholesale and retail market at Dong Xuan while the other will visit streets renowned for their cuisine as well as craft streets, historic temples and pagodas.

Twenty battery-charged electric cars will be initially imported from China to use on the tours, said the Dong Xuan Joint Stock Company, adding that they hope the tours will start running in the first quarter of this year./.
