Parking fees for bicycles and motorbikes will be set at 2,000 VND and 5,000 VND respectively, whilst between 30,000 VND and 70,000 VND can be collected for each parked car, depending on the size of the vehicle.
Local accommodation and food and drink providers are being asked to display their prices for normal days, and those for the festive period, in their reception areas in order to avoid confusing their customers. In addition, the hotlines of some local relevant management agencies are being publicly displayed at these venues so that customers can contact them if necessary.
As of 6 March, nearly 80% of the city’s accommodation establishments had presented their room rates for the upcoming DIFC 2015 festival to the municipal Department of Culture, Sports and Tourism.
Any complaints about the prices being charged by local accommodation providers, especially if they are higher than those declared, should be made on the hotline 0913414909, the cell phone number of the Deputy Director of the Da Nang Department of Industry and Trade, Mr Lu Bang.
