Aside from central Vietnam delicacies, tourists can enjoy other regional specialties such as hu tieu Sa Dec (Sa Dec stretchy rice noodle soup) and pho Thin Lo Duc, a dish from the namesake popular Hanoian pho restaurant.
According to Tan Van Duong, deputy director of the Da Nang Department of Tourism, both domestic and international tourists have returned, allowing the tourism industry to begin to recover in the wake of the coronavirus crisis.
As a result, the Department of Tourism is concentrating on promoting the destination through international events and on-site promotional activities.
