Wharf No.1 at the Chan May Port in central Thua Thien-Hue province was re-opened on September 21 after a 310 billion VND (14.2 million USD) upgrade, ready to receive large vessels carrying up to 4,000-5,000 passengers each.

The Royal Caribbean International Group invested 5 million USD in the upgrade, which increased the wharf’s length from 300m to 360m, dredged an area of 90mx450m in front of the wharf and expanded the turning area.

The port now can accommodate Quantum- or Oasis-class super-large ships, which is expected to help Thua Thien-Hue province achieve its target of 60,000 sea-bound tourists through the Chan May Port this year.

The port is among 46 sea ports in South East Asia chosen by the Asia Cruise Association as stops for pleasure boats.-VNA
