The central beach city of Da Nang is the top destination of South Korean tourists in Vietnam, followed by Nha Trang and Hoi An, online travel platform Agoda said.

Two other destinations in the top five were Phu Quoc Island and Ho Chi Minh City.

To compile the list, Agoda analyzed booking data of South Korean tourists between January 1 and March 31.

Lam Vu, country director at Agoda, said it was unsurprising that beaches attract global visitors

Da Nang and Nha Trang are popular beach cities in central Vietnam while Hoi An is home to An Bang, voted one of Asia's most beautiful beaches by Tripadvisor readers.

Located along the southern coast, Phu Quoc is famous for its long, sandy beaches that attract a large number of international visitors during the peak tourism season.

South Korea was the biggest source of visitors to Vietnam in the first quarter with over 1.2 million arrivals.

A series of South Korean celebrities have also flocked to Nha Trang and Hoi An, boosting Vietnam’s profile on global tourism map.
