A South Korean traveler was killed after his motorbike crashed into a roadside power pole in Da Lat, a well-known tourist city in Vietnam, on Saturday morning.
Da Lat police officers on Monday identified the male tourist as Lim, a 54-year-old South Korean national.
He registered for an accommodation at Ham Da Alley, Ward 10, Da Lat City under Lam Dong Province from last Wednesday to this Tuesday.
