26,000 tourists flock to Ba Na Hills during Tet holidays
DA NANG (VNS) – The Ba Na Hills Mountain Resort hosted 26,000 tourists during the Lunar New Year holiday between February 10-15, a source from the holiday haven has revealed.
Ba Na was so busy that the two cable car routes which carry visitors to the top of the 1,500m mountain ran out of capacity.
Fortunately, the resort will debut a third cable car route on March 29 to ensure the same problem doesn’t occur during the summer holidays.
It is also expected that Ba Na Hills will host a cherry festival in April to mark the 40th anniversary of diplomatic relationship between Viet Nam and Japan.
In preparation for the event, the mountain-topping destination grown 400 cherry trees – a gift donation from the Japan-Da Nang Friendship Association since 2010.
Last year, the resort hosted 760,000 tourists. – VNS
