ĐÀ NẴNG — The central coastal city of Đà Nẵng has seen robust growth in tourism, thanks to several festivals between May and September like the Đà Nẵng International Fireworks Festival and Đà Nẵng-Summer Destination 2018 programme.
According to Trần Chí Cường, deputy director of the city Department of Tourism, 1.6 million tourists came in the past two months, a 26 per cent year-on-year increase.
Four million visitors are expected during upcoming festivals like the Đà Nẵng International Marathon.
The tourism department said it has collaborated with Hòa Vang District authorities and travel firms to promote farming-tourism services in the district, with tourists visiting Phong Nam Village in Hòa Châu Commune, Gián Bi in Hoa Bắc Commune and Thái Lai in Hòa Nhơn Commune.
Đà Nẵng has six organic rice fields with a combined area of nearly 150 hectares, and targets 500ha by 2020. Thus, the next logical step is creating a range of agricultural eco-tourism products.
