The central coastal city of Da Nang is ready to welcome back foreign tourists

This information was released on February 17 during a meeting held between leaders of Da Nang City People's Committee and representatives of numerous local airlines.

According to a representative of Singapore Airlines, the carrier is scheduled to bring in the first international delegation to Da Nang on March 27.

Representatives of various airlines have expressed their desire to see the central coastal city reopen all entertainment services at tourism sites, properly handle F0 cases if infections are reported, and lift other restrictions currently in place.

They also noted that slow reopening will cause the central city to lose its competitive advantages as an attractive destination, and at the same time hinder the capital flow from foreign investors.

A representative of the Da Nang Department of Health revealed that the city would no longer implement a quarantine period for foreign tourists, adding that the unit would also provide timely support and treatment for those who are unfortunately exposed to the virus.

At present, 45% of lodging facilities in Da Nang have reopened to visitors, while 150 travel firms have resumed operations. In mid-March, other tourist attractions will reopen with a wide array of fresh tourism products.

Tran Phuoc Son, vice chairman of Da Nang City People's Committee, affirmed the city is ready to welcome back tourists. He requested that local airlines conduct international flights next March in order to revive the local tourism industry as soon as possible.
