Tourists flock to the central region

The central city of Da Nang has hosted 36,000 tourists through the Super Star Aquarius cruise over the past nine months, the city's Culture, Sport and Tourism department reported on Wednesday.

Da Nang has hosted 2.1 million tourists, of which 475,000 were foreigners, over the past nine months, according to the department. The city made VND4.6 trillion (US$219 million) as a result.-VNS
