Da Nang beach jammed with tourists on weekends
The beaches in Da Nang were full of local residents and visitors over the past weekend.
On the afternoon of April 4, the beaches of Son Tra and Ngu Hanh Son were crowded with tourists and local residents.
Thu Huong, a tourist from Hanoi, told VietNamNet that she and her friends came for good weather and bought discount air tickets and hotel rooms.
Cao Tri Dung, chairman of the Da Nang Tourism Association, said that tourists began returning to Da Nang, mainly people from Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Quang Tri, and Thua Thien – Hue.
"With many attractive incentive programs, we believe that the number of visitors will futher increase," Dung said.
Da Nang is seeking suitable measures to hold back recovery of its tourism crash, following the relaxation of the nation’s social distancing measures to curb the virus spread.
According to Deputy Director of the local Department of Tourism Nguyen Xuan Binh, the department has outlined ten tasks and solutions to recover local tourism.
Priority will be given to ensure safety at local tourist destinations, support tourism companies to resume their business activities, as well as promote digitalisation in tourism. Besides, the sector will work to improve human resources quality and service quality, he added.
The central city of Da Nang will pilot the My An Night Beach project in the coastal living quarter of My An of Ngu Hanh Son District from April.
