Da Nang sits prettily on the east coast of Vietnam, right between Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. Popularly known as the tourist capital of South-Central Vietnam, Da Nang is truly stunning - filled with beaches, museums, evolving nightlife and world-class infrastructure.
On the coast of the South China Sea, with the Han River flowing through its midst, Da Nang is beautified by multiple bridges. The most striking among them is, of course, the Golden Bridge beautified by a sculpture of two giant hands holding it up.
Also known as Danang, its proximity to My Son, Hue and Hoi An is another one of its many tourist draws. It is also popular for its own share of tourist attractions such as Marble Mountains, Bach Ma National Park, and the Dragon Bridge.
Once a laidback city by the backwaters, Da Nang is now rapidly metamorphosing into a city of the future with many educational and business hubs at the centre of its charm. Laidback beaches, vibrant nightlife, and sunny riverfronts - That's Da Nang for you!

One of the remarkable things I liked about Da Nang is the Lady Buddha statue. This statue is the largest statue of Vietnam. Near the statue, there is a temple of Buddha and a pagoda which was really peaceful. It is a beach city with many great sandy beaches with clear water. However, the public beaches were not that clean and the tides tend to get pretty high (I even lost one of my sandals in the tide). Although, the palm trees by the beach side reminded me of Beverly Hills of California. There are hills in the city as well. In fact, I stayed in one of the resorts located at the top of the hills. So you get the experience of both-- the city of beaches and hills which was quite an experience.
Da Nang is connected with Vietnam and rest of the world by air, land, rail and water. (Read More)
