Đà Nẵng – More than 200 representatives from travel agencies in Germany started a familiarisation (FAM) trip surveying tourist destinations services in Đà Nẵng, including Ngũ Hành Sơn (Marble Mountain), Linh Ứng Pagoda and various beaches.
The city’s Tourism Promotion Centre said the FAM trip, which was organised by Meier’s Weltreisen company under the Der Touristik Group from Germany, aims to set up tourism connections between the central region and Europe in the coming years.
A conference on the introduction of tourism in Asia will be held in the city today among local and German travel agencies.
Last year the central city drew in 4.6 million tourists, 1.25 million of whom were foreigners.
Đà Nẵng is close to world heritage sites such as Hội An, Mỹ Sơn Sanctuary and Chàm Island in Quảng Nam; the Phong Nha-Kẻ Bàng Cave systems in Quảng Bình; and the Huế monuments complex.
The city hosts 24 direct international flights and 14 chartered flights a day. — VNS
