Da Nang has become a destination for both domestic and foreign tourists thanks to its location near world cultural heritage sites, diverse tourism products and a port system that can serve international cruise ships.
The city aims to welcome 8.19 million visitors throughout 2019, 6.9 per cent more than in 2018. — VNS
