German cruise ship tours central Vietnamese coastline

27/03/2006 (GMT+7)

Germany's Amadea ship, with nearly 500 international tourists aboard, anchored in Tien Sa port of Da Nang city on March 24, beginning a tour of sightseeing locales along central Vietnam.

Vietnam travel.

The tour, organised by the Saigon Travel Service Corporation (Saigontourist), is designed to take tourists from Germany and other European countries to the former imperial city of Hue and the ancient town of Hoi An, which were recognised by UNESCO as World Cultural Heritage sites in 1993 and 1999 respectively.

The European tourists will also visit the Ngu Hanh Son range of fine marble mountains, located five km south of Da Nang, and the Cham ethnic people's museum, and relax on cyclo tours around the city.

The arrival of the Amadea ship raised the total number of foreign visitors arriving in Da Nang city by cruiseline since early in 2006 so far to over 3,000, signaling a promising outlook for the city and other port provinces' cruise travel tourism.

Later the same day, the ship departed for the central coastal city of Nha Trang in Khanh Hoa province.
