In Da Nang, you’ve got to hand it to the Golden Bridge. It’s quickly become one of Asia’s biggest social media stars and snapping a selfie with the giant hands in the background is a must for any visit.

Da Nang has been ranked 15th among 20 destinations to check off your bucket list in 2020, according to Courier-Mail, a daily tabloid newspaper published in Brisbane, Australia.

The opening of the mesmerizing Golden Bridge (an elevated mountain platform cradled by giant stone hands) last year has put Da Nang firmly on the tourist trail and Wotif.com managing director Daniel Finch predicts it will become one of the country’s real hot spots next year.
Daniel Finch believes the purpose-built tourism city of Cocobay, set to open next year, will soon rival the likes of Phuket and Balifor Aussies looking for a southeast Asian adventure.
The twin towers of the Viceroy Da Nang Hotel, also scheduled to open next year, will make a dramatic entry statement for the precinct, in the same way the Petronas Twin Towers define the skyline of Kuala Lumpur.
The number of visitors to Da Nang in the first quarter of 2019 is estimated at 1.8 million, with arrivals by air increasing 56.5% on-year, according to the municipal Department of Tourism.

The figure includes 3.19 million foreigners, an increase of 11%. The tourism sector aims to gross VND27.4 trillion (US$1.18 billion) in revenue, up 13.9% against the previous year.
