Hanoi (VNA) – The EU-funded capacity development programme for environmentally and socially responsible tourism in Vietnam (EU-ESRT) is building a website to help promote tourism in the central coastal region, focusing on Thua Thien-Hue and Quang Nam provinces and Da Nang city.

The website aims to strengthen tourism services and products of the localities, and support visitors in searching for tourist information. This is hoped to help increase sources of income for the localities.

The site, which is scheduled to be put into operation in this July, will cover information on must-see destinations, popular tourism activities, must-eat dishes and journeys worth travelling.

It will also provide information related to visa regulations for international tourists, weather, tourist transport support centres and accommodation establishments.

The three localities are famous for many beautiful beaches as well as tangible and intangible cultural heritages of the world such as the Complex of Hue Monuments, the “Nha nhac” (royal court music), Hoi An ancient town and My Son Sanctuary. They also boast biospheres and national parks with various species of flora and fauna.

In 2015, they enhanced links in promoting regional tourism and developing new products, in order to attract more holiday-makers to the region.

Along with sea travel, Da Nang is focusing on the development of entertainment services. Thua Thien-Hue is concentrating on cultural tourism through organising cultural events and arts performances and introducing local specialties, while Quang Nam is promoting ecotourism and community-based tourism.-VNA
