Cultural tourism has become increasingly attractive to both domestic and international tourists over recent years and contributed to the tourism sector’s sustainable development.
Vietnam was recently named a Leading Heritage Destination, a Leading Cultural Destination, and a Leading Culinary Destination of Asia at the prestigious World Travel Awards (WTA) 2020.
It was the second consecutive year Vietnam was honoured in the three categories, confirming that culture, heritage, and cuisine are key factors bringing international titles to local tourism.
The project will be developed by VNAT’s Tourism Market Department based on planning and international experience in national brand building and development, with a focus on the two strongest fields of heritage and cuisine.
Cultural tourism is set to account for 15-20 percent of the 40 billion USD in tourism revenue earned annually by 2030. By 2025 and with a vision to 2030, Vietnam will boast many special, high-quality cultural tourism products that appeal to domestic and international tourists.
The tourism sector will concentrate on promoting the national brand for cultural tourism, supporting the development of heritage and culinary tourism products, and revamping policies encouraging heritage and culinary tourism./.
The central city of Da Nang offered 2,000 tickets free of charge on the first two days of the year for locals and tourists to take part in a travel tour held in the city’s iconic Han River at night.
The program was designed to celebrate the 2021 New Year and restart waterway tourism activities at night, after a halt triggered by COVID-19, creating momentum for domestic tourism development, said Deputy Director of the city’s Department of Tourism Nguyen Xuan Binh.
Fifteen boats sailed simultaneously at 8 pm and the tour lasted for more than one hour. Musical performance was staged before departure.
Nearly 1,000 people joined the tour on the first evening of the year.

Located in the Da Nang Bay and surrounded by the Hai Van Mountain and the Son Tra Peninsula, the Tien Sa Port with its 450m-long breakwater is 12km2 in width and 12-17m in depth. Thanks to this, the port is easily accessible by large cruise ships carrying up to 5,000 passengers each.
From the Tien Sa Port, international cruise ships can find it accessible to other major ports of Viet Nam, and those of the world such as Hong Kong (China), Taipei – Taiwan (China), Manila (Philippines), Singapore, Malaysia, Shanghai (China), and Yokohama (Japan).
In recent years, Da Nang has focused on expanding the Tien Sa Port, upgrading transport infrastructure, and simplifying entry/exit procedures for cruise ship passengers with a view to developing Tien Sa Port into a modern cruise ship port in Central Viet Nam, and Viet Nam at large.
“One focus should be on developing new and special tourism products which are suitable to tourists of different age groups. Heed also should be paid to introducing intangible cultural values into one-day tours, including Cham dance, Tuong performances, bai choi (singing while acting as playing cards) performances, and water puppet shows, in a bid to attract more cruise ship passengers to Da Nang” Mrs Huong emphasised.

Black-winged Stilt can be found both on the coast and inland on any wadeable pond, lake, marsh or stream. They have the longest legs in relation to their body of any bird in the world. Plumage is very variable and head markings can differ enormously, but they invariably have black wings – hence the name, not unsurprisingly.
In Da Nang, the migratory bird can be easily found on the waters at the foot of the Son Tra Peninsula, and it always brings an endless source of inspiration to both amateur and professional photographers.
Our freelance photographer Nguyen Hong Huy has captured stunning photos of this bird.
