There will be 130 flights per week from China to Da Nang this summer, according to Mr. Tran Chi Cuong, Deputy Director of the Da Nang Department of Tourism.

The number of Chinese tourists to the central city will increase sharply in July and August and 130 weekly flights will be undertaken, 48 flights more than previously.

There are 14 routes with 82 flights bringing tourists from China to Da Nang each week. In July and August there will be about 34 routes and 130 flights.

Visitors mainly come to Da Nang on charter flights from localities such as Wuhan, Nanjing, Nanning, Shenyang, and Taiyuan.

These two months are the peak season for tourism in China, so the number of visitors is often high but it has never increased as much as this year. Da Nang will welcome from 70,000 to 80,000 visitors while in the past only 30,000 to 40,000 visited. They usually stay five days and four nights, traveling around the city and also visiting Hue and Quang Nam province.

“We have boosted the quality of services and market management to welcome Chinese tourists,” Mr. Cuong said, “There are 450 Chinese guides and hotel rooms are sufficient in number to serve the high-growth market.”

Along with the number of tourists arriving by air, Da Nang will also soon have a large number of Chinese tourists arriving by sea. A route from the port of Phong Thanh in Guangxi province to Ha Long Bay, Da Nang, and Nha Trang will be launched in August, with a frequency of two or three trips a week and each vessel carrying 900-1,000 passengers.
