The discounts are part of Quang Nam’s policy to reboot local economy and revitalize the crippling tourism industry in the post COVID period, said Phan Viet Cuong, secretary of the Provincial Party Committee.
Cuong said the province will continue to offer a 50% discount on the entrance fees to the Hoi An Old Quarter and Cu Lao Cham Biosphere Reserve, which have been both recognized by UNESCO. The discount policy also applies to admission fees to the Bay Mau Coconut Forest, which takes visitors to the peaceful countryside to discover local lush green coconut trees.
A wide range of events aimed at stimulating tourism demand in Quang Nam will also take place on this occasion. The maximum support level will not exceed the sum of VND500 million for each event, with total funding reaching up to VND10 billion.
The locality will provide total funding of VND390 million to 13 private relic sites located within the old quarter as it reopens to tourists, with each relic site receiving VND5 million per month.
Quang Nam will also offer a funding of VND500 million to MICE (meetings-incentives-conferences-exhibitions) tour packages comprising 100 tourists each staying in the locality.
