Second free tourism information centre opens in Da Nang

The central city of Da Nang has opened its second tourism information centre at the Da Nang International Airport's national arrival station. Total investment was VND200 million (US$9,500).

Tran Chi Cuong, deputy director of the city's Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism, said that in July the city would open two new flights from Da Nang to Japan and to Hong Kong so that the volume of foreign visitors would increase.

With the new tourism information centre, visitors can receive a free map, brochures and information on hotels and tour operators. The first centre was opened at the domestic arrival station at the beginning of last year. — VNS
