Residents and visitors to Da Nang will be treated to a 15-minute fireworks display at 9pm on New Year’s Eve on the banks of the Han River, which will also be in celebration of it being a centrally-run city for 21 years.

More than 1,000 high-altitude fireworks will be launched, together with 300 at low altitude, accompanied by music.

Artistic performances will be held at the park to the east of Dragon Bridge, starting at 8pm and finishing at midnight. Balloons will also be released into the night sky.

Elsewhere in the city, a countdown will be held at 29/3 Square and a music show at Bien Dong Park.

The city’s Department of Tourism estimates 143,000 visitors will be in Da Nang over the new year, including 81,500 foreigners, up 17.9 and 16.2 per cent, respectively, over last year.

Da Nang welcomed some 6.6 million visitors this year, including 2.3 million foreigners, up 19 and 36.8 per cent, respectively, against 2016.
