On 02/10/2018 at Furama Resort Danang, Mr. Huynh Tan Vinh, Chairman of Danang Tourism Association, has met with Mr. Song Do Gun, Mayor of Sacheon, Korea, and his delegation to discuss tourism opportunities between the two cities.http://www.tourismthailand.org/landing/landing_en.html Attending the meeting were also Mr. Lee Sam-Soo, Chairman of Sacheon City Council, Mr. Cao Tri Dung, Chairman of Danang Travel Agents Association, and Mr. Nguyen Duc Quynh, Executive Vice Chairman of Danang Hotel Association.

The harbor and coastal City of Sacheon has many similarities to Danang City with varieties of water and ocean recreational activities, ferries and cable cars as well as environment-friendly city lifestyle. The population of Sacheon is appx. 120,000 and people travel to overseas by using Busan International airport, where takes only up to 1.5 hours to the City. Mr. Song Do Gun suggested having a Memorandum of Understanding between the two Departments of Tourism. “For the time being, we should encourage the two Tourism Promotion Centres, Tour Operators and other private sector organisations to introduce its services and facilities in order to prepare for future partnership in welcoming tourists from both cities”, he added.

Mr. Huynh Tan Vinh, Chairman of Danang Tourism Association, briefed the Mayor of Sacheon and his delegation about recent Danang tourism situation, where has seen arrivals from Korea up to almost 60% of total International Arrivals, and more than 100 flights per week from Korea of both chartered and regular ones. Danang is attractive to Korean tourists not only because of the beauty of the City and its people, its cultural and historic points but also Danang is a beach gateway to World Heritage Sites of Hoi An, My Son and Hue. Danang becomes more popular in the world after APEC Summit 2018 in Danang, and has had chances to welcome 21 Leaders of APEC Economies including President Moon from Korea. “With the convenience of the Busan Airport where there are many directly flights to Danang, I trust, Sacheon City will become a favorite destination for the tourists from Central Vietnam. We will suggest the Leaders of Danang City this week to organize a FAM trip of Tour Operators, Hotels and other Investors to Sacheon by beginning of next year 2019”, Mr. Vinh said.

With such increases by 20-30% year on year in the Korean Tourist Arrivals to Da Nang, there are many Korean living and working in Da Nang, many Korean restaurants have been opened and some Korean residential areas have been established, however, the number of repeated tourists from Korea is still modest. “With most of Korean tourists coming from Da Nang by themselves or in leisure tour groups, in order to strengthen the traveling trend to Da Nang from Korea, we need more markets from Korea such as Sacheon City beside the existing ones, more market segments such as MICE, as to have better mix from these markets of Korea”, Mr. Nguyen Duc Quynh, Executive Vice Chairman of Danang Hotel Association, Deputy General Director of Furama Resort & Ariyana Convention Centre Danang, emphasized.
