Da Nang fireworks likely to attract 400,000

The organisers of this year's fireworks competition in Da Nang expect the event (on April 29-30) to attract 400,000 local and foreign spectators.

They have already sold 40,000 tickets.

A culture, cuisine, and tourism festival will be held north of the Han River Bridge from April 28 to May 2.

Travel agencies have put together short tours for visitors from Ha Noi and HCM City to visit tourism sites in the city and adjacent provinces.

Around 300,000 tourists visited Da Nang during the 2011 event, ten times more than in 2008, when the first international fireworks competition was held. — VNS
