An Bang Beach, 3km east of Hoi An city, central Quang Nam province, has been voted one of the top 25 beaches in Asia by travel website TripAdvisor, according to the ancient city’s officials.
The 4km-long beach, known for its soft sand, gentle waves and friendly villagers, was the only Vietnamese beach on the list, where it was ranked 16th out of the 25 beaches.
The locals keep the beach clean, removing any rubbish they find.
The beach, which connects with My Khe Beach in Da Nang City, is home to fishing villages and provides a romantic setting for couples.
In 2013, An Bang Beach was voted one of the top 100 beaches in the world by CNN Summer Travel.
In 2015, TripAdvisor rated Hoi An silk village, a living museum of silk craft, the third best attraction in the tourism hub.-VNA
