The Da Nang Department of Tourism in partnership with Hekate Technology Co. introduces the Danang FantastiCity Chatbot, Vietnam’s first travel assistant chatbot that provides tourist information and support.
The chatbot can be accessed via text message and was developed with the goal of boosting self-service tools and information channels for tourists in Da Nang, a tourism hub and the largest city in central Vietnam.
According to the Tourism Promotion Center of Da Nang, the chatbot has been upgraded many times and has shown positive results since its debut in 2018. Information such as famous destinations, events, weather forecasts, ATM locations, and hotlines are constantly updated in the chatbot.

And now with the Event Countdown as its latest feature, the Danang FantastiCity Chatbot can send users notifications about ongoing and upcoming events in the city so they can plan routes to the destinations of the events they are interested in.
The chatbot also offers e-coupons for attraction sites, tourist activities, and entertainment outlets around the city. Tourists can receive e-coupon barcodes with real-time discounts by simply registering with their email or phone number.
Another notable feature of the chatbot is its signature mascot which serves as a symbol of the city’s warmth and hospitality. It is currently featured in 8 emoji stickers showing different expressions.
With these features, the Danang FantastiCity Chatbot is not only a helpful, convenient, and user-friendly travel assistant but also functions as an effective communication and marketing tool for the Department of Tourism and other travel agencies.
