Da Nang, one of well-known tourism cities, in Vietnam has recently become more and more popular to foreign travelers.
Da Nang is the most popular summer vacation destination of tourists from South Korea in 2018, a shift from last year’s preference for Japanese cities. South Korea media quoted e-commerce website Ticket Monster (TMON) as saying that flight ticket sales in the July - August period showed Da Nang as the top foreign travel location.
Travel in the city is relatively cheap, about US$90.3 per day, and is a manageable distance from South Korea, about four and a half hours by flight. TMON said its sales data shows a growing preference for places that offer hotel, resort, shopping and tourism activities altogether.
