More than 100 paragliders from around the world joined a championship.

The “Fly over Tien Sa 2017” event was held between June 23-25, named after the central city’s famous beach.


The contest drew pilots from Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and those from Australia, South Africa, South Korea, the U.K. and the U.S.


The pilots took off from Son Tra, a peninsula which covers more than 4,400 hectares (10,880 acres) and is home to around 400 endangered douc langurs. The flight also offered them perfect view of the city.
