Looks like a Vietnamese huh? This is a small town at the seaside called Hoi An, very beautiful place. Most of Vietnam are like a construction site but not this one, Hoi An is really beautiful.
Fondest memory: On our way to Da Nang, we met 2 very noisy and smelly German tourists drinking endless beers and smoking non-stop cigarettes on our bus, until one passenger knocking his chair from behind say would you please stop smoking, then later we stop for lunch, these 2 Germans started drinking again, talking as loud as WCW wrestlers from this table acrossing that table, one of the table they met an American couple, a good opportunity to perform their talking skills now, the German guy said something like 'Look at what the American did here during the war, I really really hate those American politicians...bomb here there...' another guy from another table walk to the German saying something like be quiet then they started a war, the German said 'I hate stupid people, you know stupid peoples....' I was sitting there watching the show also listening to those stories.
Da Nang was a prime target of activity during the American-Vietnamese war. The city of Hoi An was protected by decisive action of the warring parties.
Marble Mountain's caverns were used as various depots and even as a hospital ward since it is naturally hidden and protected.
Also as a side trivia point, the USA only lost five C-141's. One of them was in DaNang. See if anyone is selling used airplane parts. I didn't see any parts of the C-141, but it will give you something to do while walking down the busy streets with nothing much to visit.
da nang is not as too touristy as hoi an.
the city is by the sea and you hardly find any souvenir there. but da nang is bigger than hoi an. you can find supermarket, international airport and university.
and unlike hoi an, most of the building is new.
from furama resort there's a shuttle bus going to da nang everyday and it's free.
like everywhere in vietnam (even in the airport) you can find a lot of people selling tropical fruit. the most interesting one is the big orange (the skin of the fruit is green). it's just so big!
others are just normal food as durian, lychee, manggis, rambutan, etc.
Fondest memory: Children are very interested in cameras and like to see their images in a digital camera. They are also very curious about tattoos and piercings.
