The Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) has chosen Nha Trang (Vietnam) to host the 5th Asian Beach Games in 2016.
At the meeting in Guangzhou, the President of OCA, Mr. Ahmad Al-Fahad Al-Sabah signed decisions to choose Nanning (China) to host the 2nd Asian Youth Games in 2013, Fuket (Thailand) to host Asian Beach Games in 2014 and Nha Trang (VietNam) in 2016.
Becoming the host city of the 2nd Asian Youth Games helps Nanning get more experiences in holding the 2nd Youth Olympic Games in 2014.
Meanwhile, the Asian Beach Games is a chance for the hosts to promote people and countries especially for Vietnam and Thailand which boast many beautiful beaches.
