Da Nang to reboot tourism from October 20

The central city of Da Nang plans to reboot local tourism from October 20, as the COVID-19 pandemic has been under control.

From November, the city will embark on “travel bubble” with the central province of Quang Nam and the northern province of Quang Ninh, heard a meeting between the municipal People’s Council and local voters last week.

Director of the municipal Tourism Department Truong Thi Hong Hanh said the city will initially welcome domestic visitors and pilot the serving of foreigners with the slogan “Enjoy Da Nang”, ensuring safety of tourists and employees in the sector.

Also in November, the city will serve international visitors who come for official duty, visit relatives and return home. They will be put under quarantine for a week and follow other regulations by the Health Ministry. Others include tourists on full-package tours and those with vaccine passports, focusing on those from the Republic of Korea and Russia.

Russia plans to bring 2,000 – 4,000 visitors to Vietnam each month, Hanh said.

Chairman of the municipal People’s Committee Le Trung Chinh said between now and early 2022, the city will continue facing difficulties caused by the pandemic. In order to restore its economy, the city will suggest the State allocate more vaccines for the second jabs and those aged 12-17.

In the immediate future, Da Nang will build economic recovery scenarios for the last three months and 2022, resume several services and pilot domestic and foreign tourism activities in line with the most suitable roadmap, he said./.
