Cruises bring boon to Da Nang.

According to the city’s Tourism Department, Da Nang received 3,700 travellers by sea in the first quarter of the year. 

On April 5, 2006, the Da Nang branch of Saigontourist received Bahamas vessel, Silver Shadow, which docked at Tien Sa port carrying 200 travellers. In addition to the key excursion places like the Cham Museum, Non Nuoc Marble Arts Village and the Han Market, the American group of tourists were also taken sightseeing in the ancient cities of Hue and Hoi An.

Silver Shadow is scheduled to return Da Nang in April, bringing another 200 American passengers, who will be received by Tan Hong Tourism Company. Meanwhile, Xuyen A (Trans- Asia) Tourism and Trading Company is also planning to receive the Peace Boat, which will dock at Da Nang port for the second time this year. About 1,100 youths, students and Japanese travellers will arrive in Da Nang on this boat. 

As such, three travelling vessels will arrive in Da Nang in this month, bringing about 1,500 travellers. Statistics show that ocean cruise travellers always have a spending level higher that of air or land travellers. 

In the first quarter of 2006, over 283,000 travellers were welcomed in Da Nang City, bringing turnover of VND102bil ($6.8mil) to the city’s tourism industry. The travel firms have received four delegations of motor tourists from Thailand and Laos, via the Lao Bao border gate, and five tourism boats with 3,700 international tourists.

 Da Nang’s Tourism Department is planning to develop new places for excursion like Hoa Xuan Village, or the tourism points on Son Tra peninsular in order to attract more tourists to the city.
