AS part of its tourist-friendly and hospitality programs, the Marianas Visitors Authority will create Quick Response or QR codes that will contain a map of Saipan and its historical sites and other tourist destinations, MVA tour guide certification manager Kuen-Hee Han.

“All you need to do is scan the code with your smartphone and all the information will be uploaded to your phone,” she said, adding that the main goal is to allow tourists to roam the island without needing a huge map to guide them.

Han said there’s already a budget allocated for the program.
