  1. Da Nang is the most beautiful city in Vietnam. All of these have been described in one. This is a great blog post. Everything about Da Nang city has been described nicely here. No tourist will need to borrow information anywhere else. The whole of Da Nang city are beautifully showed here by the pictures. Thanks for this helpful blog.

  2. This is one of the most detailed yet easy to follow pieces I have read on Da Nang! My husband had been here 3 times when he was younger and has told me several times we must go again together but we have yet to plan our trip. We are waiting until our youngest is old enough that we can leave the country and not worry. Thank you for all this information, I had no idea there was so much to see and do there!

  3. I may not be wrong to say that if you visit Da Nang without going through this piece, you may catch less fun. So detailed and informative! However, I don’t seem to understand what you mean about spiritualism and the Linh Ung Son Tra Pagoda. Could you please throw more light on it?

    Thank you!

  4. I agree with this article, the Nam O Reef is a beautiful sight to behold.
    The water body provides a wonderful aesthetic relief.
    Da Nang is truely a one stop tourist destination.

    • I must admit that outside Saigon, Danang is one of my favourite places in Vietnam. The people are friendly, the city clean and the attractions and history that are in close proximity makes it a perfect base.

  5. This is a very interesting country with a rich history! I really liked how the author could summarize so much useful information. Probably every traveler can find something interesting and useful for himself.

  6. I really want to go to Vietnam and watch fireworks on the water! Probably it’s very beautiful! But I still do not understand when this happens? And can this be combined with beach rest?

  7. I really love traveling in Asia. This time I plan to go to Vietnam. I really hope to see all the main attractions. I read that this country has a rich cultural history. I want to see for myself!

  8. Perhaps you should visit the Linh Ung pagodas. We went there once. This is a very interesting place. If you are lucky with a guide you will learn a lot of interesting things about local customs and customs.

  9. Da Nang is the perfect backpacking destination but unfortunately I don’t know when I’ll be able to get there… I’ve always wanted to experience their crowded markets with unknown fruits.
