The Hong Kong-based newspaper has ranked Da Nang third among 10 most popular destinations for Hong Kong tourists to enjoy summer holidays. The ranking was based on an increase in flight searches.

Da Nang  is home of the beautiful My Khe Beach, Ba Na Hill and a neighbor to the popular ancient town of Hoi An. Da Nang has a busy summer agenda with its signature international fireworks festival taking place every Saturday from  June 1 to July 6 along the Han River.

South Korea, mainland China, Japan and Hong Kong are the four groups of foreign visitors with the highest growth rates in the central city of Vietnam. 

Fukuoka in Japan was the most sought destination, followed by Chiang Mai in Thailand. Melbourne and Sydney in Australia came in fourth and fifth on the list. The rest of the top 10 included South Korea's Busan, Thailand’s Phuket, Japan's Sapporo and Okinawa, and Taiwan’s Taichung.

Last year, Đà Nẵng received 7.6 million tourists, 2.87 million of them foreigners, a 23.3 percent increase year-on-year.
