The American newspaper with worldwide influence and readership has ranked Da Nang in the top 15 in their annual list of 52 places to go this year.

The third-largest city of Vietnam has gone from a place that is "best known for being a gateway to UNESCO Heritage town of Hoi An" to an attraction "with strong foodie scene and new hotels and resorts popping up on a five-mile-long beach strip.", the newspaper describe Da Nang.

 

It also advises travelers not to leave without having a bowl of mì Quảng (Quảng noodle soup), "the justifiably famous local noodle soup", which costs $1 at street-food stalls.
