    Background: DANANG, VIETNAM

    Vietnam may not be the first choice on holidaymakers' lists, but if the authorities in the city of Danang have their way, Vietnam's isolation from the tourist world may soon become a thing of the past. Consider, for example, Danang's beautiful beaches, famous for their silver sands and fresh water. New hotels and restaurants are under construction to cope with expected increases in visitors looking for that elusive, unspoilt beauty spot. Danang is surrounded by villages whose craftsmen are renowned for their marble carvings. The green and purple marble statues had already spread throughout China and Western Europe by the 17th century. The craft has been handed down from generation to generation. Among the five mountains which surround the city, there are many ancient pagodas and shrines that could also prove to be tourist attractions. Given its natural, tropical beauty, Vietnam, and especially Danang, could soon be rivalling more traditional spots for the lucrative holiday trade.
