Studying Australian Qualifications in Hospitality Management & Commercial Cookery in Da Nang

Live and study in one of the most livable cities in Vietnam

With broad beaches, fantastic street food, the fabled Hải Vân Pass, and a growing collection of cafes, restaurants, and bars, it’s no wonder the residents of Đà Nẵng sport some of the broadest smiles in the country. The warm sands of Mỹ Khê Beach sweep south from the mountainous Sơn Trà Peninsula. Đà Nẵng hosts some of Vietnam’s top luxury resorts, but much of the beach still belongs to the people who make it their playground, gym, and source of livelihood.

In 2017, Danang was voted as the most livable city in Vietnam, and it is famous for being an un-usually clean and organized city for Vietnam. The best part is that it has all three features people often look for: mountains, beaches, and urbanization. Danang is one of the fastest developed cities in Vietnam.

Da Nang in need of qualified tourism human resources for post-pandemic recovery

In late 2019 when Da Nang welcomed a high number of domestic and foreign visitors, according to the municipal Department of Tourism-released statistics, Da Nang hospitality industry employed about 50,000 people, of whom about 19.2% worked in transportation services, 61.3% got involved the accommodation and catering segments, and the rest were employed in other supplementary services.

The unexpected COVID-19 pandemic, however, caused huge fluctuations in staff numbers working for the hospitality sector in 2020, with about 80% of the total tourism human resources quitted and change their jobs.

According to recommendations by Mr Le Tan Thanh Tung, Deputy General Director of the Vitours, it is high time for Da Nang tourism industry to take drastic solutions to improve the quality of human resources by reviewing the status of tourism personnel, standardising human resources, and especially helping them access the national government’s support packages for workers affected by the pandemic.

Echoing Tung’s view, Director of the Department of Tourism Truong Thi Hong Hanh said, in addition to implementing plans to restore tourism activities and stimulate travel demand in 2021, heed will be paid to conducting a human resource survey, from which appropriate solutions such as organising short-term training courses and programmes will be taken.
