Posted On:  06/03/2017 11:51:39

The 2017 RS:One World Championships will take place in in Vietnam from 10th to 15th June.  Quang Nam is located in the centre of Vietnam, about 900 km from both Hanoi in the North and Hochiminh city in the South. Vietnam is 10,406.83 km2 with a population of about 1,5 million people. Quang Nam is a well known destination of two world heritage sites named Hoi An ancient town and My Son Sanctuary.

Hoi An - the competition venue - is located 30 km Southeast of Da Nang city and is easily accessed. The Hoi An ancient town preserves intact its original architecture including houses, assembly halls, pagodas, communal houses, temples and wells, bridges, ancestors' houses of worship, wharves and markets. The narrow streets cross one another to form a chessboard town. The scenery of Hoi An colored by moss roofs looks like a lively picture. During the night time, Hoi An ancient town is brightened by thousands of lanterns which create very fanciful scenery of Hoi An.

Not only famous for the World heritages, Quang Nam is also famous for stunning beaches. Stretching over 300 km of coastline with beautiful and clean beaches, An Bang is one of the most beautiful beaches in the world by CNNGo and on the 20 most beautiful beaches in the world by Rough Guides respectively. Especially, there are hundreds of international level and luxury resorts and hotels that bring you very comfortable leisure conditions when spending time here.
