The Deputy Director of the city’s Tourism Department, Nguyen Xuan Binh, told Viet Nam News, the project would be bounded by 4 main streets, namely Vo Nguyen Giap, Hoang Ke Viem, Chau Thị Vinh Te and Ngo Thi Si.

Deputy Director Binh said that this area would reserve 5 streets for pedestrians, namely An Thuong 1, An Thuong 2, An Thuong 3, An Thuong 4, and Tran Bach Dang.  An international shopping centre will also be built in the quarter.

The An Thuong Quarter boasts a busy tourism scene.  It is home to 141 travel agencies, 64 hotels and guest houses and home-stays, along with 43 restaurants and 12 shopping centres.

It also hosts around 1,400 tourists a day during the peak season (between April and September) and 650 visitors each day in the low season.

A total of nearly 300,000 tourists, of whom 74,000 were foreigners, stayed in the quarter in 2017.

Two years ago, Da Nang opened its first downtown shopping centre on Le Duan Street, with a 1.1km section from Ong Ich Khiem to Tran Phu junction, and a night food centre in Huynh Thuc Khang Street.

Last year, Da Nang welcomed a total of 6.6 million tourists, of whom 2.3 million were foreigners,

However, the city has been lacked of international night entertainment service for tourists while spending their long vacation.
