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

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

 

It advises travelers not to leave without having a bowl of Mì Quảng (Quang noodle soup), "the justifiably famous local noodle soup," which is only US$1 at a street-food stall.

The number of visitors to Da Nang increased 15.5 percent year-on-year to 7.6 million in 2018, including 2.8 million foreigners, a 23.3 per cent increase from a year earlier, according to the Department of Tourism.
