Tour guides as tourist products in Dalat, Vietnam: Exploring market freedoms in a communist state
Department of Geography, University of Tennessee.
2015 (English)In: Asia Pacific Viewpoint, ISSN 1360-7456, E-ISSN 1467-8373, Vol. 56, no 2, 237-251 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

This paper investigates how tour guides position themselves in Vietnam's transition from a command economy to market socialism. The case study of the Dalat Easy Riders motorcycle guides demonstrates that tour guides take advantage of, personify and contribute to the economic, political and social transitions in the country. Relatedly, we argue that Vietnam's transition (known as d?i m?i) is a key component of the Easy Riders' promotional narratives. In sum, we analyse how tour guides become tourist products in a transitional society.
