Ba Na Hills has become the landmark projects for foreign tourists to Danang A huge gap to fill in the market According to a recent research, 70 per cent of international travelers to Vietnam arrive with the purpose of discovery. Average tourist spending for sightseeing activities only accounts for 11.9 per cent of the total spending during the trip.

Hanoi and HCM City residents feel this most clearly. In the morning, when leaving home to go to the office and school, and in the afternoon, when returning home, they have to struggle on the road with the flow of people and exhaust from cars and motorbikes. In the summer sun, people are subjected to the scorching heat because of the asphalt effect, concrete houses, and the heat from air conditioners and engines.
