On August 9, the world’s third biggest cruise ship Voyager of the
Seas carrying more than 3,600 passengers and 1,200 crew members landed at the
Chan May port in the central province of Thua Thien Hue for the first time.
Staff from the leading tour operator Saigontourist brought passengers to
historical relic sites and beauty spots in Hue, Da Nang, and Hoi An where they
can enjoy culinary arts and shopping services.
Representatives from the world’s leading magazines from Australia and Hong Kong
conducted surveys at Thua Thien Hue’s tourist sites.

the project to upgradewharf No 1 in Chan May port and part of maritime
cooperation activities between Thua Thien Hue and Royal Caribbean Cruise.
