South Korean travel retail powerhouse Lotte Duty Free today opened a new store in downtown Da Nang, Vietnam.
Located at VVMall in My Khe Beach, one of the most popular beaches in Vietnam, Lotte Duty Free’s Da Nang Downtown Store is a travel destination on its own hosting more than 200 brands of cosmetics, spirits, jewelery, watches and fashion alongside Asian shoppers’ favorite Korean brands like Cheong Kwan Jang, Sulwhasoo and The History of Whoo. It also features Vietnamese domestic products and souvenirs that are particularly loved by international travelers such as pearl, coffee and local food.

Da Nang Downtown Store is its forth store in Vietnam, marking the country’s largest duty free store as it spans 2,000sqm.
