ĐÀ NẴNG — Đà Nẵng City’s tourism department, in co-operation with Vietnam Airlines, will host the first tourists to visit Đà Nẵng after the second wave of COVID-19 that hit the city in July.
The department said a group of 55 tourists from Hà Nội have booked a three-day and two-night tour exploring destinations in the central city on October 4-6.
It said the Hanoian tourists, who will join the tour of Hùng Long Thành travel agency, will take a return flight from Hà Nội to Đà Nẵng to land at Đà Nẵng International Airport on October 4.
The department said it hopes more domestic tourists would come to Đà Nẵng soon with promotion programmes offered by travel agencies, airlines and hotels.
Sun World Bà Nà Hills, one of the top tourist attractions in Đà Nẵng, reopened to the public last week.
The city’s tourism industry has been heavily damaged by COVID-19 and it hosted only 2,800 tourists in August, 95.5 per cent decrease from the same period last year. — VNS
