The trip brought together representatives from travel agencies that bring foreign visitors from Asian and European countries to Danang.

The organization of cultural tours seeks to serve tourists, particularly European and American visitors, who have interests in historical and cultural stories about the city, as well as the Hoang Sa (Paracels) and Truong Sa (Spratly) archipelagos.

Huynh Duc Trung, head of the travel division under the Tourism Department, said that the city wanted to identify historical and cultural sites in the city through the Famtrip, for developing new tourism products, as well as assist tourists in learning more about the city’s historical and cultural values.

The trip itinerary included visits to such tourist sites as the most ancient roadside pole in Danang, which is nearly 100 years old, Dien Hai Citadel – the national historical relic, the Danang Museum, the Danang City Administrative Center, the Hai Chau Communal House, and the Hoang Sa Exhibition House.

Of these, the city’s centrally-located roadside pole is a new destination, near Dien Hai Citadel and the Danang City Administrative Center. It was built in the French Colonial Era in Vietnam, displaying directions to the former Henri Parmentier Museum, which is now the Danang Museum of Cham Sculpture.

In addition, the Hoang Sa Exhibition House is politically meaningful, operating as an institution to display and store historical documents, objects and images on Vietnam’s Hoang Sa archipelago.

After the Famtrip, the department will ask travel agencies to study and design new tours to offer to tourists in the near future, said Trung.

Earlier, the department also conducted a field trip to assess the tourism potential of Hoa Vang District in the city, as part of its work to develop eco- and cultural-tourism products.
