Da Nang strives to welcome 9.8 million tourists next year

Municipal People’s Committee Vice Chairman Le Trung Chinh highly lauded the tourism department’s leaders and staff for their great efforts in enhancing the quality of tourism services, as well as developing more special tourism products to increase tourist arrivals to the city.

Vice Chairman Chinh pointed out some shortcomings in the tourism industry over the year. In particular, the city has still lacked of night-time entertainment services, whilst the illegal discharge of wastewater into the sea has yet to be resolved completely.

He also highlighted the importance of developing high-quality services, and fully tapping the river tourism development potential.

As of December 2019, 35 international and 10 domestic air routes respectively operated 496 and 662 flights per week to the central coastal city.

Da Nang was ranked first among Vietnamese tourists’ popular destinations by Agoda, one of the world’s fastest growing online travel booking platforms.

The city is building a night economic development plan in the field of tourism to realise the 2020 target.

Besides developing the domestic market, the city will diversify the international one in 2019-2021, focusing on potential markets such as France, Germany, Russia, Australia, North America, and India.

According to the municipal Department of Tourism, the central coastal city of Da Nang aims to serve 9.8 million tourists in 2020, a year-on-year rise of 12.74 %.

Heed should be paid to facilitating domestic and foreign investors to develop and operate tourism projects in the city effectively, and opening more non-stop international air routes connecting the city with destinations worldwide.

Importance will be attached to increasing the advertisement of new and special tourism products and services in the mass media to capture more attention of tourists at both home and abroad.
