As many as 160 overseas Vietnamese students on a visit to their homeland for a Vietnam Summer Camp arrived in central Da Nang city on July 21.

The students visited My Khe beach and several famous sites in the city.

On the same evening, they joined 400 youngsters from the city for an exchange designed to promote the bond between overseas Vietnamese students and domestic youths.
