The delegation was made up of tour operators in Cape Town and Johannesburg who are studying tourism products and plan to put on tours from South Africa to central Vietnam in the future.

During their stay, the delegation visited a number of tourist attractions such as the Sunworld Ba Na Hills complex, Ngu Hanh Son (Marble Mountains), Linh Ung Pagoda, and Son Tra night market in Da Nang.

In Quang Nam, they also enjoyed an Ao Dai (long dress) fashion show and toured around a night market located in Hoi An’s Old Quarter.

Wendy Kathleen Goutier, tour manager of Holiday Travel in Cape Town, said the group greatly appreciated the hospitality shown by residents, whilst they were also impressed with the beautiful landscape and local cuisine on offer.

When we return home, we plan to hold meetings to decide on the most suitable tourism products for customers in South Africa, she added.

The activity, which was jointly organised by the Da Nang Tourism Promotion Centre and Singapore Airlines, aims to introduce destinations and new products of central Vietnam to South African travel firms. 

It will provide a chance for South African companies to connect with tourism partners in Da Nang and Quang Nam province, thus promoting the further exchange of travelers between the two markets. 

South Africa boasts high spending and is considered a potential market of Da Nang’s tourism industry.
