The tourism connection product “Heritage Road” between Quang Nam, Da Nang, Thua Thien- Hue has been effective for 20 years. Quang Nam becomes one of the tourism centres in the Central coastal region and in Vietnam.
The idea of the world cultural heritage road in Central Vietnam was born in 2002 based on the fact that there are several world cultural heritages in this region. They are the base for tourism development.
In December 2006, an agreement on tourism connection between Thua Thien-Hue, Quang Nam and Da Nang was signed with the goal of building three localities as a tourist attraction.
Accordingly, several plans, strategies and policies have been carried out to speed up tourism development, including investment attractions, propaganda, and human resources training.
Since the agreement came into operation, tourism in these three localities has grown dramatically. In 2019, the connected destination received 21.3 million visitors; 10.3 million of them are foreigners.
According to Director of the Quang Nam Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism Nguyen Thanh Hong, the professionality in tourism has been improved so much thanks to the connection. It is the reason for its growth.
Quang Nam, Da Nang and Thua Thien Hue is considered as the major junction between Vietnam Central and other localities in the country.
The tourism connection between them has been effective, especially in the post-Covid-19 period, and becomes one of the typical connections nationwide.
The Thua Thien Hue- Da Nang- Quang Nam tourism connection is highly appreciated. It meets enough requirements to become a driving-force centre for national tourism development.
It is necessary for these localities to tighten the cooperation more to deploy more attractive tourism stimulus packages, to build more charming and typical tourist attractions.
