Da Nang (VNA)
The central city of Da Nang is planning a myriad of New Year welcoming
activities to attract tourists, and they will be organised at an appropriate
scale depending on the COVID-19 situation, a local official said on December 9.

The “Da Nang Festival – Welcome New Year 2021”
programme, slated for December 30, 2020 to January 3, 2021, aims to help
revitalise tourism amid the new normal so as to ensure the twin targets of
pandemic control and socio-economic development, according to Director of the
municipal Tourism Department Truong Thi Hong Hanh.

She noted that apart from recent travel stimulus
efforts, festivities held during the New Year holiday will also help advertise
local culture, cuisine, and places of interest as well as create new tourism
products so as to draw more visitors to the city.

The programme, to take place at the square of
the Asia Park in Hai Chau district, will feature a wide range of activities
like a cyclo parade, free night tours on the Han River, street music shows, and
singing and dancing performances with traditional musical instruments.

A noodle festival with typical noodle dishes of
Vietnam and other countries, along with booths introducing Da Nang’s
delicacies, is also expected to add further to the city’s attractiveness./.
