Vietnam Travel Guide

Da Nang (Đà Nẵng) is Vietnam's third largest city, and is located on the Eastern Sea coast, midway between Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City and the largest city of Central Vietnam.

The city itself has neither the atmosphere of Hanoi nor the hustle-bustle of Ho Chi Minh City, but has its share of sights and is close to the charms of Hoi An and the imperial capital of Hue, making it a popular vacationing spot for those looking to explore the attractions of central Vietnam or soak up some rays while hanging out on the city's beaches.

 

Stay safe

It is a comparatively safe city but be sure to lock up your belongings at night (as everyone does) which includes not leaving your bike out on the street. Everyone generally brings them into their houses. Beware of the Taxi scam. When going to Bana Hills or Hue, some taxi driver will stop and agree at a very low price for a return journey and once you reach you destination, he will triple or quadruple the price knowing you don't have an option to return. When you do return to your hotel (he will park the car slightly away from the main entrance of your hotel), he might lock the central locking and demand the price first before letting you go. To avoid this, use only MAI LINH Taxis and agree a price with them. They are generally honest. A better way is to take your driver to the Hotel recpetion to confirm the price again and leave the Taxi details (like the number on the plate) with the Hotel reception.

 

Cope

 

Da Nang is less Westernised than Hanoi or HCMC so it can be more difficult to feel settled here. The locals are friendly/curious enough to always be willing to help you (even when there is no language).

 

The downside to the very laid back, less serious and frenetic, aspect of Da Nang is that even locals frequently complain that there is nothing to do except drink, which they do a lot. This is not really true -- there is a zoo, a soccer stadium, many tennis courts and pool halls, several large modern discos/night clubs, bars, etc., and of course the beaches and Son Tra peninsula. However, it is also true that coffee and beer drinking are the most common leisure activities of most local residents.

The hottest months of the year are June, July, and August, when the temperature can get to as high as 40 degrees Celsius, and it is generally very dry. There are usually tropical storms in October and November.

Da Nang is also ideally positioned between Hoi An for a day trip and Hue for day or short trip. Stop by and soak up the atmosphere and enjoy the unspoilt golden sandy beaches on the up and coming western part of Da Nang (Son Tra peninsula) before it becomes a busy tourist destination. Unfortunately, only the Furama and Pullman five star resorts are on the beach. All other hotels near the beach are just on the other side of a relatively busy road in the Son Tra peninsula, unless you go a little out of Da Nang. Deck chairs and sun loungers could be rented on the beach for VND 20 - 30,000 per two hours. They will try to charge tourists double that amount but if that were to happen, show them the price list displayed on the beach and they will give-in! Do not forget to take your towel, etc. A handful showers exists near where the deck chairs are.
