To minimize funding organizations and from specific conditions, instead of building 1 Village athletes, we will arrange accommodation athlete delegations hotels from 3 star to 5 stars along the coast and as close to the coast , the better. On the other hand, instead of the players union in each country, this time, the players are arranged in accordance with each sport. Thus, the move to the competition venues will be much more favorable, as the athletes have to travel only along roads Vo Nguyen Giap – Hoang Sa.
In particular, we are very focused on athletes eating delegations. Not only ensure food safety and hygiene, the hotel also mindful of the diet for the purpose, and to ensure the health, both in line with religious rituals of each athlete in each country. In addition, the hotel must provide the venue suitable for the athletes can perform daily religious services, if required.

From the direction of the city, we have cooperated with Dance Music Theatre Vietnam to build scenarios for the opening ceremony, closing ceremony and composer Nguyen Quang Vinh – Theatre director – as general director.

The city also directed to the Organizing Committee to implement the design, installation and countdown timer early commissioning in preparation for opening day ABG 5.
Since the proposed method of Da Nang, the Ministry of Culture venues unified set the clock loop rotation area, the Han River and the bridge is located on the East Coast. This is the appropriate place by rotation with large area; at the same time, this region is one of the focal points of the city traffic should be highly effective in advocating for ABG 5. Because only be granted a major part of the budget should, budget design, installation Timers of ABG 5 mobilized from socialization.

Expected date of 19/9, clock installation work will be completed to keep operating at the time of one year before the opening ceremony ABG5.
Q. Could you tell us about the venues of 14 subjects, with 22 subjects in ABG 5 classification?
The sport of ABG 5 will take place on 3 clusters with specific stadium located in the center cluster Park South China Sea, beach area and T-20 Near Dana Beach hotel. The width of the beach used as a stadium – from the edge of the water – about 200-300 meters. Advantages of the coast of Da Nang is wide, less comfortable and quite clear sidewalks along the road, it can be arranged at the office “unprepared” to serve the sport. Moreover, with a long coastline, so the layout of the competition area very favorable.
With the close direction of the leadership of the city, the enter the full responsibility of the relevant units with the support of the ministries, central agencies and favorable conditions of Danang as well as past experience we’re confident with the ability to organize successful ABG 5.
