The Thinh Hung Trade and Service Company started the first green transport service in Da Nang at the end of March. Its quiet, open-sided, non-polluting electric vehicles are now very popular with sightseers.
Six-seaters can be found on the streets along the city’s beaches from 7a.m to 9 p.m every day. Hire charges are VND250,000 for one hour, VND350,000 for two hours, VND450,000 for three hours and VND80,000 for each subsequent hour.
The company plans to expand the service to other popular areas including Bach Dang St and the Thuan Phuoc Bridge in the near future.
A visitor from Ho Chi Minh City said he is really impressed with the service and travelling Da Nang’s beautiful beaches is very relaxing.
A lady from Ha Noi said that in her city, electric vehicles run around the old quarters and the Guom (Sword) Lake so that passengers can discover the culture and history, whereas in Da Nang, the beachfronts can be enjoyed, especially in the cool of the evening.
A Germany tourist said he prefers the open relaxed atmosphere of the electric vehicles to normal confining taxis.
