QR codes now found on street signs in Ho Chi Minh City

Ho Chi Minh City has just begun the pilot installation of QR codes on street signs, to help local people and visitors find out more about the national characters, events, and places behind street names.


Ho Chi Minh City has piloted the use of QR codes on street signs at six intersections in the heart of the downtown area in District 1: Le Thanh Ton & Đồng Khởi, Le Thanh Ton & Pasteur, Ly Tu Trong & Pasteur, Ly Tu Trong & Dong Khoi, Nguyen Du & Dong Khoi, and Le Duan & Cong xa Paris.

The new QR codes have already caught the eye of passers-by.

This is the first time QR codes have been used to provide information on street names anywhere in Vietnam./.
