Top places to visit
1. My Khe Beach
My Khe Beach is one of the most popular beaches in Da Nang, a beautiful stretch of white sand and clear water. With calm seas and light winds, it is a superb place to visit for a swim, especially if you have young children with you.
2. Hoi An Ancient Town
Hoi An ceased to be a major port at the end of the 18th century and hasn’t been modernised in the same way as nearby areas such as Da Nang. It also managed to avoid too much major damage during the country’s many wars and so offers a unique snapshot of the past. The port itself still functions on a traditional level and fishing, along with tourism, is a major source of income for the area. In 1999 Hoi An’s Ancient Town was declared a World Heritage Site.
3. Marble Mountains
The Marble Mountains is a set of five rocky outcrops that rise up and dwarf Da Nang. Nestled within these marble and limestone formations are tunnels, caves and Buddhist sanctuaries. Embark on a tour of this popular pilgrimage site, where each mountain is named after a natural element. So there is Wood, Metal, Earth, Fire and Water.
4. Cua Dai Beach
Cua Dai Beach offers respite from the heat and crowds of central Hoi An. It is located roughly 4 kilometres (2.5 miles) northeast of the city. The beach is a sizeable stretch of well-kept sand. Though it has its fair share of tourist resorts, Cua Dai is usually fairly peaceful and especially quiet during the week.
5. Han River Bridge
Stroll along the spectacular Han River Bridge in the evening to be dazzled by its glowing neon beams. Walk along the river to find the perfect spot for a photo of the unusual architectural forms or use the bridge to leave the city and access the golden beaches of the east coast.
6. Han River
Set off on a gentle evening cruise down the Han River and gaze across the water to view the sparkling city skyline. Enjoy a drink in one of the scenic waterfront bars and admire the spectacular bridges that reach across the Han River toward the Son Tra Peninsula.
