Da Nang's Son Tra Peninsula and Beaches Managing Board will build a tourist reception centre in March at the second Regional Maritime Search and Rescue Co-ordination Centre in Son Tra District.
The existing port will host boat tours around the islet off Hai Van Pass and Son Tra peninsula, the managing board said. It will be the city's second cruise tour launching point, along with the Bach Dang Wharf on the Han River.
About 20,000 passengers take the peninsula's boat cruises every year.
The city has also started building its first cruise port and aquatic sport centre on the east bank of the Han River. First-stage investment for the project is VND203 billion (US$9.6 million).
The Tien Sa port in the central city – the only cruise port – served 120,000 tourists last year. — VNS
