Da Nang, home to Asia’s beautiful My Khe Beach and a neighbor to popular ancient town Hoi An, came ninth on the list of 10 best places to welcome the New Year based on the booking data for December 31 collected by global online accommodation reservation provider Agoda.

Japan's Osaka topped the list, followed by Tokyo, Fukuoka, Taipei, and Bangkok.

South Koreans have become among the biggest groups of visitors to Vietnam in recent years. In the first 11 months of this year 3.1 million of them came to the country, a 46.5 percent year-on-year increase, according to the Vietnam National Administration of Tourism.

A 15-day visa waiver for South Korean tourists and frequent direct flights between Da Nang and South Korea’s major cities have contributed to making Vietnam’s third largest city a top draw for Koreans.

It has gained greater prominence since its Golden Bridge opened in June this year.
