An international canoe racing tournament will be held in Da Nang on Han River. Actually the event is under arrangement and calling for investment but hopefully will take place in summer 2014 for the first time. Originated from the idea to make Da Nang a city of tourism events in Central Vietnam, the Da Nang Canoeing is expected to attract visitors and international canoeing teams to join the race and surrounding festive events. This year of 2013, the city successfully organized the Paragliding Tournament, Beach Destination, the Da Nang Fireworks and the 1st Da Nang Marathon.
Canoeing is a paddle sport in which you kneel or sit facing forward in an open-decked canoe, and propel yourself with a single-bladed paddle, under your own power.

Time: Summer 2014
Participants: International Canoeing Teams from Indonesia, Malaysia, Japan, Vietnam.
