Popular tourist hotspots in central Vietnam, including several UNESCO heritage sites, have seen a surge in tourist numbers after Vietnam lifted most of its Covid-19 restrictions.
After Vietnam allowed quarantine-free entry from March 15 and resumed most of its pre-pandemic visa policies, Da Nang’s tourism industry has seen hotel occupancy rates reach 70-75 percent on weekend.
The municipal tourism department said the number of domestic tourists arriving in the city in the first half of this year grew 39.5 percent year-on-year to 1.27 million, around 60 percent of pre-pandemic levels.
The city also welcomed 57,800 foreigners, around 3.2 percent of pre-pandemic levels.
Cao Tri Dung, chairman of the Da Nang Tourism Association, said the city’s international tourism market will see a slower recovery as its key feeder markets like China and South Korea are yet to fully reopen their tourism industries.
Dung said that in the second half of the year, there will be 90 weekly flights connecting Da Nang with Asia’s tourist hubs like South Korea, Thailand and Singapore.
