Vietnam's China Beach ranked among 'World's Most Luxurious Beaches'

Travel News Asia 10 October 2005

Vietnams China Beach has been ranked among the Worlds Most Luxurious Beaches with Forbes magazine including the 20-mile stretch of golden sands in its latest list of luxury beach destinations around the world.

China Beach is ranked among such stunningly beautiful beaches as Bondi Beach in Sydney, Grace Bay Beach in the Turks and Caicos Islands, South Beach in Miami, Plage de Pampelonne in St Tropez and Wailea in Hawaii.

The Forbes citation says, China Beach is enjoying a resurgence in tourist travel. The Danang People's Committee has launched a concerted effort to rid the area of panhandlers and today the beach is one of Asia's prettiest - and most historic.

Traditional round Vietnamese surf boats, the magazine notes, are one of the best ways to ride the waves.

China Beach also benefits from its location at the hub of four World Heritage Sites - the ancient port of Hoi An, the spiritual centre of the Champa civilization My Son, the imperial city of Hue and the mystical Phong Nha caves in Dong Hoi.

These world-class attractions are now promoted as The World Heritage Road, a tourism initiative launched by The Furama Resort Danangs General Manager, Paul Stoll.

Mr. Stoll said, Back in 1998, China Beach was hailed by the Asian Wall Street Journal as the future Phuket and now that vision is becoming a reality, with international standard resorts elevating it to a world class destination. Vietnam is meanwhile one of the safest countries in the world for tourists.

The destination is also benefiting from a growing number of international direct flights to nearby Danang from Singapore, Bangkok, Taipei and Siem Reap in Cambodia, as well as an increasing number of daily domestic connections from the two major cities, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, as well as other destinations in Vietnam.
