Khanh Hoa bans floating restaurants

The local authorities of the central coastal province of Khanh Hoa have banned floating restaurants for safety concerns.

The decision was made following the recent sinking of a floating restaurant Vinh Hy Bay in Ninh Thuan Province which killed 2 guests in July.

There are 50 floating restaurants operating in Nha Trang, Cam Ranh and Ninh Hoa. The ban will affect businesses’ operations. However the provincial government has decided to suspend the operation of floating restaurants aiming to prevent the likelihood of similar incidents happening again, according to Deputy chairman of Khanh Hoa Province’s People Committee Tran Son Hai.
