Ranked seventh in the list, Da Nang is described as laid-back and friendly. Culinary tours are a hugely popular way to experience literal local flavor, according to TripAdvisor.

“After you’ve stuffed yourself with bold noodle soups and savory street foods, walk it off by exploring the limestone caves and Buddhist grottos of the Marble Mountains,” it advised travellers.

Along with Da Nang, Ho Chi Minh City was scraped into the list at number 12.

The top 10 trending tourist destinations include the Indian city of Kochi, followed by Luzon (the Philippines), Porto (Portugal), Porto Seguro (Brazil), Gramado (Brazil), Lombok (Indonesia), Da Nang (Vietnam), Zakynthos (Greece), Tel Aviv (Israel) and Krakow (Poland).

Earlier in 2015, Da Nang was selected by TripAdvisor as one of the top travellers’ choice destinations on the rise.
