With an impressive increase in visitors during the 30/4-1/5 holiday season, many unique new products available only in Da Nang, tourism in the Han River city has made a vibrant comeback and promises spectacular breakthroughs in 2022.
Tourists are on the rise

“The number of tourists over the last holiday shows that Da Nang’s tourism industry is showing real signs of recovery after being badly hit by the epidemic for a long time.

The key to “waking up”
It can be said that tourism in Da Nang has undergone a revolution in innovating products and services to attract tourists, to get a breakthrough in the recovery journey after a long time hit by the Covid-19 pandemic.
Remember that the last Lunar New Year – which is considered an opportunity to promote tourism again after the impact of the Covid-19 epidemic – is in contrast to the excitement of destinations such as Da Lat, Nha Trang and Phu Quoc, Sa Pa… Tourism in Da Nang is quite calm. Many destinations, hotels closed with bolts, few guests.
Faced with that situation, at the beginning of February 2022, at a meeting with the leaders of Sun Group in Sun World Ba Na Hills, Da Nang’s leaders expressed the wish that the government would guide the leading enterprises in the city to create new products, old renew products, add unique value to tourism, determined to get Da Nang back on track.
Immediately afterwards, with the drastic leadership of the city government and the initiative and flexibility of the business community, tourism in Da Nang seemed to take a new breath. A series of new products and services have been created and built, many events and programs are held continuously, creating a cheering and colorful atmosphere for Da Nang tourism. In addition, the city has actively reopened, advertised international flights and attracted foreign tourists to return.
Since March 15, after reopening to international tourists, the city has organized a series of activities, events and announced new products to attract visitors, such as: the National Marathon Da Nang International Festival, Hot Air Balloon Festival; organized to welcome the first 2 international routes from Singapore and Thailand…
In order to serve people and tourists to have fun and entertain themselves during the holidays of April 30 and May 1 this year, the tourism industry of Da Nang has announced a series of attractive programs and events with the theme “Enjoy Da Nang”.
In addition to the city, companies are also constantly launching new products. Sun World Ba Na Hills of Sun Group launches Time Gate, Moon Castle, Sun God Waterfall, B’estival 2022 Food and Beer Festival and thematic show “The battle of the Moon Kingdom”…
