Sleepless in Danang

Vietnam, Danang, tourism activities

Danang in Central Vietnam wants to diversify its tourism product with innovative and creative offers. The latest idea is to propose to travellers a sleepless night beach experience with numerous activities along the sea…

The idea was mentioned within a report discussing how to diversify tourism products and manage tourism-related services throughout the coastal city.

Plans indicate that there will be camping activities at night, along with massage services and movie screenings featured throughout the Truong Sa – Vo Nguyen Giap – Hoang Sa and Nguyen Tat Thanh coastal road.

It is hoped that Ngu Hanh Son district will feature a 24/7-night street accompanied by entertainment services at Vo Nguyen Giap beach. Simultaneously, the city is expected to initiate a scheme to increase investment in the An Thuong tourism area in the future.

At present, the Da Nang city People’s Committee is calling for investment into a four to five star cruise ship, which will provide catering and entertainment services in Danang Bay.

Elsewhere, the city will also provide support for investors who are looking to develop yacht lounge services, organise a music festival on the beach, in addition to promoting events on the banks of the Han river in order to create nightlife that features the city’s cultural characteristics.

Furthermore, Da Nang has also allowed inland waterway cruise ships to operate for up to 24 hours, while some areas such as seafood streets and entertainment sites are currently testing closure times of their venues at 2 am.

The central province of Quang Nam where Danang is located, received more than three million visitors, including 1.4 million foreign arrivals during the first ten months of the year, up 2.7 per cent on year, according to the Quang Nam provincial People’s Committee. Quang Nam is turning increasingly into a top destination for international travellers. The province has over 1,000 accommodation units with more than 15,000 rooms. This represents an increase of 8.7 per cent on-year. In addition, up to 128 of the 188 hotels in the province meet international standards representing more than half of the rooms capacity with close to 8,000 rooms.
