HCM CITY  Đa Nẵng City and the provinces of Quảng Nam, Thừa Thien Huế and Quảng Bình have offered hundreds of tour packages, travel products and services with attractive discounts at a promotional programme in HCM City.  

The programme titled ‘Amazing Central Heritage’ is aimed at promoting the unique heritages of the four central localities.

A wide range of new travel products and services with high quality are offered to tourists at discounted prices as part of efforts to revive the tourism industry, Trần Văn Phuc, deputy director of Thừa Thien Huế Province’s Department of Tourism, said.

Nguyễn Xuan Bình, deputy director of the Đa Nẵng Department of Tourism, said on Friday that the programme in HCM City, a key market for the central region’s tourism sector, attracted the participation of more than 300 travel firms that offered tour packages, including cuisine and leisure travel products and entertainment activities.

They received a large number of bookings for the Reunification Day (April 30) and International Labour Day (May 1) holidays and upcoming summer holidays, he added.

The ‘Amazing Central Heritage’ four-day tour package priced at VNĐ4.09 million (US$177) a person and the ‘Amazing Đa Nẵng’ three-day package priced at VNĐ3.49 million ($150) are among the most popular.

Tourists can enjoy free entry at many attractions in Đa Nẵng such as the Ngũ Hanh Sơn tourist area, Đa Nẵng Museum, and Đa Nẵng Fine Arts Museum.

Hotels and resorts in the city are offering 20-50 per cent discounts on room rates and services until year-end.

The four localities will strengthen oversight and seek feedback from tourists on the quality of products and services.
