Open-top buses a hit in Da Nang
Update: Jan 08, 2018
The central coastal city of Da Nang plans to launch a second open-top bus service for tourists between the international airport and Son Tra peninsula.

An open-top bus serves tourists travelling along city beaches and inner streets

The city’s Department of Transport said the new service would begin later this month. It said it would be run by the Empire Group and would operate every 30 minute from 7am to 10pm each day.

The service, which will use eight 45-seat buses, will start from Da Nang Airport and wind through main and coastal streets before stopping at Linh Ung Pagoda on Son Tra Mountain.

Last July, the first open-top double-decker bus tour was launched to connect the airport and CocoBay - Da Nang's largest entertainment complex – in Ngu Hanh Son District.

According to the city’s tourism department, the new service aims to capitalise on the beautiful beaches of Da Nang and iconic bridges over the Han River.

In 2012, the city operated the first battery-powered cars for tourists travelling along coastal beaches.
