AirAsia, one of the world’s best low cost airline has added back Da Nang, Vietnam back to its extensive list of destinations! This is actually a terrific news to everyone who wishes to travel to this gem of South East Asia tourism at a lower cost! I was proud to be one of the 180 guests on board (that’s a 100% flight load, yo!) in AirAsia’s inaugural flight to Da Nang which landed at 29th August 2014, 1330hrs local time.
The flight was given a grand welcome with a water salute and it was a pleasure to be part of this history making moment with AirAsia. I had seen water salutes around the internet and also from the news but to actually be part of one is totally unbelievable. I wished I had known this earlier or I would have already captured the experience on video.
Upon arriving, me and the other bloggers were warmly greeted by these lovely Vietnamese staff. Not only that, we were also being greeted by Mr. Tran Chi Cuong (Vice Director of Culture-Sportand Tourism Department of Da Nang), Mr. Nguyen Ba Quan (Vice President of Da Nang International Airport) and Mr. Nguyen Thanh Vu (Vice President of Da Nang Terminal Operation). Together with us in this fully loaded flight to celebrate this special occasion is Mr. Spencer Lee, AirAsia Berhad’s Head of Commercial.
For those who are interested to pay a visit to Da Nang, AirAsia is the only airline that offers direct flight 4X weekly from Kuala Lumpur to Da Nang. And in conjunction with the reopening of this Da Nang route and AirAsia’s inaugural flight here, AirAsia is offering promotional deats with all-in-fares from as low as RM97* one way for bookings made between 1st September 2014 and 14th September 2014 for travel period between 2nd September 2014 to 31st January 2015.
**Booking can also be made via online at www.airasia.com, AirAsia’s mobile on on Android, iOS, Windows and Blackberry platform or even their mobile site at mobile.airasia.com.
Da Nang is a MUST TRAVEL destination that I would highly recommend if you like photography, beach and also cultural stuffs. Whether if you are a traveller who is keen to explore and understand a foreign culture or someone who seeks a relaxing destination to get away from work, Da Nang is the place to consider. Besides, Hoi An, one of UNESCO’s world heritage site, is only an hour drive away. Here you will witness one of the most well preserved town that dates back into the 15th and 19th century and also place where you can get cheap and good quality tailor-made clothes.
I will be sharing later more on what is there in Da Nang and here are some pictures you can see that I had taken during my 4 days trip there.
