Update: Sep 28, 2015
Three waterway tourist routes are going to be launched in the central city of Da Nang to attract more tourists to its trade villages and landscapes, according to the city’s Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism on September 24th.

The first one, named the Han River-Co Co River, will sail tourists to the cultural village K20, the Quan The Am (Goddess of Mercy) Pagoda, the Marble Mountain, and the fine arts stone village while the second route, Cu De-Truong Dinh, will take visitors to an old wall, the shrine dedicated to Ms. Bo Bo, and the Nam O fish sauce making village.

The last waterway route, the Han River-Tuy Loan, will be a tour to the Cam Ne sleeping mat making village, and the communal house of Tuy Loan village. 

Apart from the three new routes mentioned above, Da Nang city has also concentrated on developing the Han, Thuan Phuoc and Thu river ports, rolling out criteria for boats operating on the rivers and increasing training for staff to meet the growing demands of tourists.

With the Han River flowing through the city, the Han River seaport and various beautiful islands in the Da Nang Bay, Da Nang city expects to entertain tourists with its newly-designed waterway routes.

Currently, 15 boats are licensed to operate on the Han River, providing tours of contemplating sunrise and sunset, the Han River at night; kayaking; visiting Son Tra Peninsula; fishing and diving to contemplate coral; and exploring Chao Isle-Ngoc Island.
