“Should bikinis be made compulsory for beach goers?” has recently turned into a hot topic of discussion after it was mentioned at a meeting in Da Nang, a city located in central Vietnam. At the 14th session of the People’s Council of the coastal city on July 9, local authorities talked about tourism development. Ngo Quang Vinh, head of the Da Nang Department of Culture, Sports, and Tourism, said that the city has received lot of compliments from tourists for its clean, beautiful and low-cost serviced beach.

However, Vinh also mentioned that several foreigners have complained about many Vietnamese people wearing sleepwear to the beach “instead of bikinis,” and wondered if there should be a regulation which would require beachgoers to wear the two-piece swimsuits.
