By June 22, 2018 Danang today No Comments

Some representatives from Da Nang’s travel agencies are predicting that the city is likely to welcome a higher number of visitors during this year’s summer tourism season against last year.


Therefore, the travel agencies are now focusing on enhancing the quality of their services, and offering a wide range of new tourism products to attract even more visitors from both home and abroad.

Mr Doan Hai Dang, the Director of the city’s branch of Vietravel cum Vice Chairman of the city’s Travel Association, said that about 200 delegations of domestic and foreign visitors have booked tours to Da Nang through his company, a rise of 40% compared with the same period last year. 185 of them are domestic visitors.

His company is offering the Da Nang-Hoi An-Hue-Ba Na, and the Da Nang-Ba Na-Hue-Phong Nha Cave tours, Director Dang added.

Mr Dang noted that the city’s summer tourism season which is from April until late August attracts a large number of domestic visitors, especially those from Ha Noi, Ho Chi Minh City and some central regional localities. This is mainly attributed to the city’s beautiful and its clean beaches, plus local delicious and fresh seafood.

The city branch of the Ben Thanh Tourist Company has recently seen about 10% increase in the number of tour bookers against last year. It has been paying special attention to employing tour guides, and working with accommodation and transport service providers, to enhance their service quality. The company’s ‘Dat Quang Xua’ and Ba Na-Hoi An-Hue-Phong Nha Cave tours are priced at 3.75 million VND/ person.


In a similar vein, the Viet Da Travel Company is expected to bring around 2,500 tourists to the city. The company’s 4-day/3-night tour at 4-star hotels, with the price of 3 million VND/person is preferred by visitors.

The company’s Director Dinh Van Loc remarked Da Nang boasts clean, beautiful and safe beaches, and a wide range of fascinating entertainment activities. In addition, the city’s popular tourist attractions, and local friendly and hospitable residents, leave a deep impression on visitors from both home and abroad.

“A 2-day/1-night tour named ‘Free and Easy’ at the Cocobay Entertainment and Tourism Complex is being offered at the price of 390,000 VND per person. Also, there are tours to the Ly Son Islands, Cu Lao Cham (Cham Islands), Con Co Island, and Son Tra Peninsula, combined with going fishing with fishermen, watching fireworks from yachts, and having dinner at the Hai Cang Da Nang Restaurant located on the 33rd floor of the Novotel Danang Premier Han River. All tours will promise visitors wonderful times and memorable experiences’, Mr Loc added.

Currently, there are over 100 travel agents operating in Da Nang, which is expected to bring more visitors to the city. Notably, the ongoing Da Nang – Summer Rendezvous programme 2018 and the grand finale of the Da Nang International Fireworks Festival 2018 are considered as the city’s special cultural activities, helping the city more inviting to visitors.

This year’s number of local residents to visit domestic localities and foreign countries is also higher than last year’s.

In particular, in June, Vietravel has organised tours to other localities nationwide and foreign countries for 121 groups of local residents.

Mr Dang noted that the main reasons are thought to be simpler visa procedures, attractive tours with reasonable prices, and many direct flights connecting Da Nang and foreign countries.

As of late last year, there had been a total of 15 scheduled and 14 charter direct international routes connecting Da Nang with other destinations worldwide, together offering over 195 flights per weeks in total.
