According to the list, An Bang ranked fifth, while My Khe came in sixth.

TripAdvisor said that An Bang Beach boasts an array of attractions with its powder-white sand, blue skies, and stunning views.

"The beach is set against a lush, green backdrop and home to a coral reef, making it a perfect spot for swimming and snorkeling," it noted.

The website also suggested that thrill-seekers go paragliding, jet skiing, and body surfing in the cool blue waters.

If visitors are looking for something more relaxed, TripAdvisor added, then they should kick back on a lounge chair under a palm tree or bike along the nearby path.

"My Khe Beach checks all the boxes when you want a relaxing beach day: Powdery-soft sand, gentle surf, coconut trees swaying in the breeze," TripAdvisor highlighted on its website.

It shared that when visitors are ready to take things up a notch, then they should go for a dip in the water or surfing.

About 12.6 million international tourists visited Viet Nam in 2023, a 3.4-fold rise from 2022, surpassing the target of 8 million set earlier, the General Statistics Office (GSO) reported.

The nation welcomed 1.5 million foreign arrivals in January, a year-on-year increase of 73.6 percent and equal to the pre-pandemic period in 2019.

For 2024, the country targets to serve about 17-18 million international travelers, and 110 million domestic ones.

In the most ideal condition, if Viet Nam manages to attract 18 million foreign arrivals, the tourism industry could be said to fully recover to the record level of 2019./.
