China Beach is an American dramatic television series set at an evacuation hospital during the Vietnam War. The title refers to My Khe beach near the city of Da Nang, Vietnam, which was nicknamed China Beach by unknown foreigners. The ABC TV drama aired for three years, from 1988 to 1991, but in that time there were four seasons.
China Beach was a critically lauded but poorly rated series. ABC stuck with the show for four seasons, but the final season was put on hiatus in fall 1990 and did not air its finale until July 22, 1991. As a result of the strange scheduling, Dana Delany was eligible for (and ultimately won) a Best Actress Emmy in the fall of 1992, a year after the series broadcast its final episode and over a year-and-a-half after many of the scenes were filmed.
China Beach seems to still cling to its past horrors of war with the ruins of the military base like the helicopter hangars lying in the beach. Nevertheless, China Beach today is regarded as one of the preferred Vietnam tourist attractions with its expansive white sand beach and friendly people. China Beach today has grown to house a small community of guesthouse owners, marble statue shops, and other various trades.
With its vast expanse of pristine water and clean unspoiled beach, China Beach, Vietnam gives an invigorating experience to the visitors. A swim in the clear water or a long walk along the clean grainy sand that extends up to several kilometers is a must for the visitors here. For those who love a luxurious stay, China Beach has the best to offer in Vietnam, the Furama Resort. This is an award winning resort with best accommodation facilities along with a range of recreational activities like diving and water sports. This resort offers 200 luxuriously furnished rooms and suites.
