Around 300,000 tourists visited Danang in 2011, ten times more than in 2008, when the first international fireworks competition was held.
The organizers forecast that the fifth fireworks competition on April 29-30 this year will attract 400,000 local and foreign tourists. They have already sold 40,000 tickets to the festival goers and mobilized 2,000 logistics and security personnel.
A number of travel operators have prepared short tours for visitors from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City to visit the local sites and adjacent provinces.
A culture, cuisine and tourism festival will also be held north of the Han River Bridge from April 28 to May 2.
Located in central Vietnam, Danang is the third largest centrally-run city after Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
