The move aims to step up the attraction of tourists in order to boost socio-economic development and stimulate travel companies to bring tourists to Da Nang while supporting service and tourism businesses in particular and the city as a whole to overcome the difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to a representative of the Da Nang Department of Tourism, the municipal People’s Committee has approved the organisation of a New Year greeting programme “Da Nang Festival – Welcoming New Year 2021” from December 30, 2020, to January 3, 2021, at the Asia Park Square in Hai Chau District. The organisational plan will be decided depending on the reality of the disease.
Coming to the festival, tourists will be entertained with a variety of vibrant and exciting cultural & art activities, including a tourism cyclo parade, a night tour on Han River with 3,000 free-of-charge tickets, admiring Rong (Dragon) Bridge emitting fire and water, street music, and a New Year greeting art programme in both traditional and modern styles, featuring famous singers, artists and rappers.
Together with the local authorities, many units and tourism businesses in Da Nang have also launched exciting activities to attract tourists for the year-end and New Year occasion, such as lighting the Christmas tree at Furama Resort, a winter festival at Sun World Ba Na Hills, a countdown to welcome the New Year 2021, and many discount programmes for people and visitors.
* In an effort to remove difficulties for tourism businesses and accelerate the recovery of the local tourism industry, the People’s Council of Quang Binh Province has also adopted a resolution on reducing entry fees by 20% to 50% for all tourism products throughout 2021, including Son Doong Cave and Phong Nha Cave, among others.
