8 teams will join the festival and two of them will perform each night. Danang is accelerating their preparations for this event so they can attract a large number of tourists, both domestic and international.
After the festival's first announcement, many travel agencies made preparations for the event, creating numerous tours. This year there are five performances on 5 Saturdays from April to June.
Doan Hai Dang. Director, Viettravel Danang Branch said: This is a good idea because tourists will have more chances to see fireworks if we extended the festival. Tourists don't have to come to the city at the same time so it will make it easier for travel agencies to arrange and improve their services. Tour prices will also be lower.
Many hotels in Danang are also making preparations to attract tourists coming to the city for the festival this year. The festival will help maintain the city's position as Asia's leading festival and event destination. It is estimated that the city will receive 2 million visitors in 2017.
Nguyen Xuan Binh, Deputy Director, Danang Department of Tourism: Hotels have upgraded their facilities in order to handle the large number of tourists visiting the city for this year's festival.
International teams from Australia, Italy, the UK, Austria, China, Japan, and Switzerland plus the host team, Viet Nam, will compete at the Danang International Fireworks Festival 2017. The festival is expected to become a "must-see" event which will leave a big impression on tourists showing them how beautiful and dynamic Danang city is.
