Bangkok (VNA) –
The central city of Da Nang held an event in Bangkok, Thailand on October 24 to promote its tourism to Thai travel companies and connect them with Vietnamese partners.

The Da Nang Tourism Roadshow 2019 saw the participation of representatives of the Tourism Authority of Thailand, the Thai Travel Agents Association and local tourism companies.

Speaking at the event, Vietnamese Ambassador Nguyen Hai Bang said Da Nang has become one of the most outstanding tourist destinations in Vietnam and Asia over the past years.

The city attracts foreign visitors thanks to its UNESCO-recognised heritage, clean and beautiful beaches, developed infrastructure, pure air and the hospitality of locals, he said.

Over the recent past, Thailand has emerged to be one of the key source of international tourists to Da Nang, the ambassador noted.

Direct flights between Bangkok and Da Nang operated by Bangkok Airways, Air Asia and Vietjet Air, and the upcoming launch of Vietnam’s national flag carrier Vietnam Airlines have helped to enhance trade, economic, tourism and cultural links between the two cities and countries, he said.

A representative of the Da Nang Tourism Department introduced the major attractions in Da Nang as well as its tourism connectivity with other localities like Hoi An, Hue and Quang Binh.

Thai media reported that in the first eight months of this year, 310,955 Thai tourists visited Vietnam, up 46.3 percent year-on-year, and the number is expected to grow further in the time ahead thanks to the increase of flights.

The media said Vietnam’s central region is popular among Thai holiday-makers, with Da Nang, Hue and Hoi An being the top choices./.
