The first chartered helicopter tour of the year will transport a group of 22 tourists from the US, Australia and France from Da Nang to Hoi An's Cham Islands this weekend.

A 24-seat Russian-made MI-17 chopper will take off from Da Nang International Airport on Feb. 18 and land on the Cham Islands 30 minutes later.

Visitors will have the opportunity to enjoy a flyover of central Da Nang city and explore the Cham Islands landscape.

In the afternoon, tourists will enjoy a swim over the colourful coral reefs and have time to relax on the pristine beach.

The tour will end at 2pm after a fresh seafood lunch.

The package is being offered by Vitours./.
