15:15 | 09/01/2018

VGP - The central coastal city of Da Nang is scheduled to launch a second open-top bus service for tourists between the international airport and Son Tra peninsula.

The new service would begin later this month. It would be run by the Empire Group and would operate every 30 minutes from 7am to 10pm each day.

The service, which will use eight 45-seat buses, will start from Da Nang Airport and wind through main and coastal streets before stopping at Linh Ung Pagoda on Son Tra Mountain.

Da Nang lies within easy reach of the country’s best heritage icons, including Phong Nha-Ke Bang in Quang Binh, the UNESCO-recognised world heritage Hue monument complex, the ancient town of Hoi An, My Sơn Sanctuary and world biosphere reserve Cham Island in Quang Nam.

In 2012, the city introduced battery-powered cars for tourists travelling along coastal destinations as a promotion for environmentally friendly public vehicle use.

More than 3.3 million tourists, 1.2 million of them foreigners, visited the city in the first six months this year, a 33.2 per cent growth.

In 2017, a total of 5.6 million tourists visited the city.
