The Da Nang Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism has announced that in the near future it will work with related parties to open new tourism programs, such as the Han River - Co Co River Tour (visiting Cultural Village K20, Avalokitesvara Temple, Ngu Hanh Son, and a stone carving village), the Cu De River Tour (visiting the Nam O cultural cluster, including the Ancient Well, Tien Hien Tomb, Bo Shrine, and Nam O fish sauce village), and the Han River - Tuy Loan River Tour (visiting the Cam Ne mat village and the Tuy Loan village temple).

Recognizing the importance of the Han River for its tourism sector, the city government has focused on the construction of a pier and introducing more tourism destinations by the end of 2016, including the upgrading of infrastructure to serve tourists and roads to different tourism sites. The tourism industry has been developing plans for tours on river routes and will provide literature to give tourists a better experience while on the tours. Han River Port and Thuan Phuoc River Port are also being developed as fixed tourism ports.

In opening new tours to new destinations, the Department sees river tourism as a strong advantage for Da Nang that gives visitors more options.

With the Han River flowing through the city and with beautiful islands in Danang Bay, the development of boat tours, where guests can enjoy the local scenery, is expected to earn the city’s tourism sector more revenue.

Many impressive constructions can now be found along the Han River, such as the Statue of the Carp Dragon, the Bridge of Love, and Bach Dang Walking Street.
