Da Nang City in central Vietnam on Friday welcomed back the first group of tourists from Taiwan following a long hiatus induced by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The visitors arrived on flight JX701 operated by Taiwan’s STARLUX Airlines, which departed from Taipei at 7:35 am and landed in Da Nang at 9:25 am.

The first visitors from Taiwan were warmly welcomed with flowers and souvenirs from Da Nang’s tourism promotion center and Da Nang International Airport.

Miko, who was among the tourists from Taiwan, said she was surprised by the warm welcome by the city's tourism industry.

Da Nang is a new destination in Southeast Asia, Miko continued, adding that she and her group decided to travel to the Vietnamese city when Taiwan reopened international tourism after the COVID-19 pandemic.

The group of visitors was scheduled to stay in Da Nang for five days and visit famous landmarks such as Ba Na, Linh Ung Pagoda, My Khe Beach, and Dragon Bridge.

STARLUX Airlines will operate an average of three flights per week between Da Nang and Taipei in November, Roger Yen, the airline’s chief representative in Vietnam, said, adding that the flight frequency may increase in the coming time.

According to Da Nang’s tourism promotion center, the resumption of flights from Taiwan to Da Nang is a positive result from the center’s efforts to reconnect traditional international tourist markets and boost the number of international visitors to Da Nang in the last months of 2022.
