US$5 million for Chan May port upgrading project

Royal Caribbean International Group (RCI) and Vietnam Shipbuilding Industry Corporation on Sunday signed an agreement to upgrade Chan May Port in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue.

RCI will invest US$5 million in upgrading the port’s infrastructure system so that it can receive large vessels carrying up to 4,000-5,000 passengers each. At present, the port serves vessels with 3,000 passengers.

Chan May is among 46 seaports, which are chosen by the Asia Cruise Association to be a destination for pleasure boats in the Southeast Asia region.

Chan May port has so far received 23,581 visitors from Hong Kong (China), Italia, Spain, England, the U.S., Canada and Australia this year.

The number is expected to rocket up by the yearend, reaching 68,113 visitors, up 193 percent over 2014.
