Da Nang – most popular summer destination for RoK tourists

Da Nang city in central Vietnam is the most popular summer vacation destination of tourists from the Republic of Korea this year, a shift from last year’s preference for Japanese cities.

The RoK media quoted e-commerce website Ticket Monster 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 90 USD per day, and is a manageable distance from the RoK, about four and a half hours by flight.

The website’s sales data shows a growing preference for places that offer hotel, resort, shopping and tourism activities altogether.

The number of visitors to Da Nang is increasing with annual average growth of 20.06 percent in the 2013-2017 period.
