Da Nang, Vietnam's third largest city after Ho Chi Min (in the south) and Hanoi (in the north), is rich with cultural heritage; as well as with a setting of spectacular natural beauty, this popular tourist attraction is renowned for its luxury resorts and restaurants in ‘Non Nuoc’ beach looking over pure white sandy beach and the sea.
The city also has more tourist attractions such as ‘Hue’, a former capital of Vietnam, and ‘Hoi An’, an ancient town - both of which are designated by UNESCO as World Heritages of Vietnam. Whether a traveler is looking for a luxurious retreat, or a cultural journey, Da Nang is the answer to all.
Korean Air currently operates 18 flights a week between Seoul and Vietnam, including the 7 flights per week service on the Incheon-Hanoi route and the 11 flights per week service on the Incheon-Ho Chi Min route. With the addition of the Incheon-Da Nang route, Korean Air will now fly to Vietnam 20 times a week, covering the three largest cities in North, South and Central area.
This new route further demonstrates the airline’s continued commitment to passengers – offering its extensive global network with a wider range of options for each of its passengers, delivering true “Excellence in Flight”.
