Da Nang anticipates 332,500 tourist arrivals during Tet

The central coastal city of Da Nang expects to welcome nearly 332,500 visitors during the upcoming Tet (Lunar New Year), a year-on-year increase of 11.9 percent.

As the Tet holiday makes for a busy tourism season for people from China, Japan, the Republic of Korea (RoK), the EU, and the US, as well as overseas Vietnamese, the city hopes the number of foreigner visitors will rise 23.1 percent to hit 162,600. Thanks to the opening of several direct flights connecting Da Nang to Incheon, Busan, and Daegu (RoK), Osaka (Japan), Bangkok (Thailand), and Doha (Qatar), foreign tourists will now find it much easier to visit the city.

According to Vice Director of the municipal Department of Tourism Nguyen Xuan Binh, localities, travel agents, and tourism service firms have worked to ensure social order, environmental hygiene, food safety, and good quality services.
