NDO – The authorities in Thua Thien – Hue, Nghe An and Lam Dong province have come up with a range of solutions to promote local tourism in order to react to the Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism’s campaign on ‘Vietnamese people travel Vietnam’.

A tourism forum took place in Hue city on May 31 under the theme ‘Connecting travel businesses in Hue, a safe and friendly destination’.

The event drew the participation of provincial leaders, delegates from the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism, and more than 300 representatives from local tourism associations and travel agencies from both inside and outside the province.

The participants reviewed the provincial tourism sector’s situation and discussed target markets for Hue city after the COVID-19 epidemic while putting forward solutions to boost cooperation with their colleagues in Da Nang city and Quang Nam province to promote the central region’s tourism industry.

On the occasion, the provincial People’s Committee announced a tourism stimulus programme, which will run through this year with a wide range of cultural and festive events to attract more visitors to the locality.

A seminar was held in Nghe An province the same day to seek ways to revive local tourism activities post COVID-19. Delegates stressed the need to build a safe and friendly tourism environment, and design new attractive tourist products and services in order to meet the increasing demands of travellers.

Also on May 31, youth union members in Da Lat city, Lam Dong province joined hands to plant more than 1,400 cherry blossoms in sub-zone 147A, ward 7.

According to Vice Chairwoman of Da Lat city, Tran Thi Vu Loan, the move aims to create a new cherry blossoms space in the city, thus providing visitors with more options to explore the city while contributing to increasing the city’s forest coverage rate.

A 90-minute street music programme was staged at An Thuong Tourist Quarter in Da Nang city yesterday evening, featuring beautiful songs and dance by local dancing club members and students from the Da Nang College of Culture and the Arts.

The event will be held every weekend to create a platform for music and dance lovers and bring a fresh experience for visitors to Da Nang city.
