With distinctive attractiveness in comparison with other coastal cities, the central Vietnamese city of Da Nang is currently the top destination chosen by couples for their wedding photos.

Less than two hours flying from Ho Chi Minh City or Hanoi, Da Nang usually welcomes crowds of couples, who come for their photo shoots, especially on weekends.

The city is becoming more and more beautiful with various landscapes, ancient or modern, from seas to mountains and lakes.

My Khe Beach, Son Tra Peninsula, “Love Lock” Bridge, Han River, Hai Van Pass, Ba Na Hills are among the popular choices around the city.

Many people also take advantage of this trend to offer photo shoot services, diverse in forms, packages and prices. And it seems that they are making a fortune from these businesses.

Tai, a teen boy who controls bamboo rafts to carry couples for photo shoots at the Green Lake in Da Nang, told Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper that he managed to paddle a few dozen trips a day, each of which costs VND50,000 (US$2.15).

“On weekends, the number of grooms and brides is double that on weekdays, so sometimes they have to wait for nearly an hour for their turn,” said a drink vendor at the Black Rock Beach in Son Tra Peninsula.

Wedding couples seen in Da Nang are not just people living in this coastal city, but a lot of them are young people from other localities.

“I heard that Da Nang is a livable city with beautiful scenery, and indeed it is,” said Khuong Hung Anh, 27, coming to Da Nang from Hanoi with his fiancée Ha Bao Khanh, 24, on a four-day trip for their bridal photos.

“We chose to take photos in Hoi An, My Khe Beach, the Golden Bridge at Ba Na Hills – which is a new attraction in Da Nang – and felt quite satisfied,” Anh told Tuoi Tre.
