Da Nang Things to Do

  • Walking Food Tour

    When I just got here, I have no idea where to go and where to eat, so I found this tour on website. I choose the night tour, because I love seafood and I read a lots of ppl share that if you are tourist and go to sea food place, the price will rise. I don't like that feeling, so I think follow a local guy is a great idea. We met at the beach, he is...

  • Fishing beaches

    Several people have commented on the tourist "China" beach. In my opinion, the less traveled (by tourists) beaches to the northwest of the city are more unique due to the active fishing communities.The beaches on the northwest side of the crescent-shaped beach on north side of the city is not a destination that tourists typically visit. Tourists...

    This museum should not be missed, whether you are staying in Danang or just passing through on your way to Hoi-An.The Champa Kingdom existed from the 2nd to the 17th centuries, and the Cham Nation still exists as a minority in Vietnam, with its distinct traditions. They were influenced by India through their mutual commercial ties, and embraced the...

    Most long-term foreigners living in Da Nang will go down the road to Hoi An for entertainment and weekend fun.However, when they opt to stay in town, or when other travelers decide to experience Da Nang, there are only a few night spots. Bamboo 2 bar is one of them.It is a relatively cozy bar, with copious amounts of graffiti and writing on the...

  • Train Journey From Da Nang To Hue

    When considering whether to take a bus, or the train, or hire a private car (with driver), I'd highly recommend the train.The train takes 3 hours, is not expensive and is very scenic. Bus is the cheapest option (around USD 3) but the least scenic (goes through a tunnel). Private car option is the most expensive and would make sense only if...

  • From Da Nang to Hoi An And Back

    When travelling from Da Nang to Hoi An, it is best to negotiate the price of a taxi. Do not take a metered taxi as they charge much more. We were there in August 2011. We paid around VND 400000 taking a metered cab from Da Nang airport to Hoi An! In comparison, we paid only USD 15 for a minivan (arranged by our hotel) on our return leg from Hoi An...

    I just read that danger warning about his bill at Da Nang airport. A little petty I thought, given that the average income for these people is around US$330 PER ANNUM. and he ***ed about US$ 3.50. Oh - that's right - it's the principle isn't it. Well I guess that'll teach them.They rely on us for their income. Without us travellers they would be a...

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...
