The organising board of the Da Nang International Fireworks Festival (DIFF) 2017 recently announced that colourful hot air balloons will fly over Da Nang between 6.30am and 7.30am daily from 27 until 30 April, when the Da Nang International Fireworks Festival (DIFF) 2017 begins. 

Air balloons will fly over Da Nang between 6.30am and 7.30am daily from 27 until 30 April

The air balloons, produced by South Korea’s PAX IND company, will feature the symbol of Da Nang, and the official logos of DIFF 2017 and local tourism.  Subject to wind direction, they intend to fly from the Eastern Sea Park to Asia Park.

During the DIFF opening ceremony, the balloons will fly over the main 5-sided stage floating on the Han River prior to the first fireworks performances by the teams Da Nang-Viet Nam and Austria.

The opening ceremony will also include a fascinating paramotor display in the sky to entertain the audience waiting to enjoy the amazing fireworks shows.  The paramotors and the 5 hot air balloons will drop a colourful shower of confetti.

The displays of the paramotors and balloons aim not only to mark the opening of this year’s DIFF, but also to welcome the upcoming 25th anniversary of bilateral diplomatic ties between Viet Nam and South Korea.

On the sidelines of the 2-month-long DIFF 2017, in addition to hot air balloons, a special programme entitled ‘Five Elements Food Space’ will take place on an area of 4,000m2 at 1 Phan Dang Luu, opposite the Tien Son Sports Arena in Hai Chau District, from 29 April until 30 September. 

The cuisine centre can accomodate a total of 4,000 visitors to taste Vietnamese and local specialties, including vegetarian food.

The magnificent culinary space, with 5 open kitchens representing the 5 elements of ancient oriental philosophy, will offer up to 500 national and international dishes in total.  Throughout the programme, there will be arts performances, cooking classes, and exciting eating minigames.  The show will be hosted by Pham Tuan Hai who is a culinary expert, a passionate chef, and a Master Chef Viet Nam judge.  Also, visitors will get the opportunity to meet with international chefs to gain an insight into delicious dishes from their countries, and to join in cooking contests.

Admission is free for visitors all day long.  It will open throughout the summer, until September.
