The Temple of Literature, a popular tourist attraction in Hanoi, launched an audio guide service for visitors on January 11.
The system, developed by the site’s Culture and Science Centre, provides visitors with information in audio form on the establishment and development of the Temple of Literature as well as the heritage’s value. The information was thoroughly revised by cultural researchers and experts.
The audio guide is available in eight languages: Vietnamese, English, French, Spanish, Korean, Japanese, Thai and Chinese.
To experience the service, visitors put on their headphones, which are connected with handheld devices, select the targeted language, and then explore at their leisure.
A new way-finding and sign guideline system designed by French experts were also put into operation on the occasion.
The improvements aim to better serve visitors to the Temple of Literature, thus making the site more attractive to tourists from both home and abroad.
The site greeted 1.6 million visitors in 2017, 60% of which were foreigners.
