You must’ve heard about Da Nang city, maybe from your friends or family members who visited Vietnam. And you’re furiously typing into Google to find out what’s the deal with this place, why people would want to go there? And most importantly, why you should jump on the plane immediately? So we thought we’d share a few of our reasons:
1. Down-to-earth people
Visiting here you’ll meet many friendly and smiling locals. They will offer you a warm welcome from the bottom of their hearts and turn your trip into an unforgettable experience.
2. Charming beaches
There’s absolutely no word to describe the attractiveness of all the beaches here. The sand is extraordinarily white, the water is transparent and turquoise. Among them, My Khe is voted as one of the most fabulous beaches in the world. It’s only a 10-minute drive from the city centre. So grab your sunscreen and towels and enjoy!
3. Magnificent mountains
Besides jaw-dropping beaches, Da Nang also has marvelous mountains which are a huge bonus for this charming city. Monkey mountain is amazing with a myriad of wildlife. Particularly, this mountain has red-shanked douc langur which is a pretty rare species that still exists in the world.
4. Delicious foods that won’t burn a hole in your pocket
Da nang has become a magnet for world-wide travelers, thanks to its show-stopping nature and also its authentic local cuisine. This is a blissful land of street foods, from the sizzling pancake to Quang noodle and many kinds of desserts. The baguette here will make your mouth water if you try once. All of them are super cheap and scrumptious. Here are places you can try Quang noodles.

5. Healthy and clean environment
Not only gifted with natural diversity, but this beautiful coastal city is also constantly striving to reach its goal of becoming an environmentally-friendly city in 2020. Tourists can enjoy relaxing walks around green surroundings in the city.
6. Free Public Wi-Fi
We understand how annoying it can be when there’s no internet connection, especially in a foreign country. You’d have to go into a coffee shop and order something from the menu before they give you the wifi password. Sometimes the drinks suck! Thankfully, Da nang provides free wifi everywhere in the city center. How convenient!
7. There are no beggars
One of the nice things about Da Nang is that it’s very hard to find beggars here. Da Nang maintains its excellent safety and order. If you ever come across a beggar on the street, please don’t hesitate to call a helpline. This service offers free job-training at vocational schools to help them get back on their feet. The seniors, however, have past their working age and will be brought to the Centre of Social Protection and receive help from it. The same goes for homeless people.
8. Gorgeous bridges
It isn’t strange at all when Da Nang is well-known as a city of bridges. How come? These are bridges with intricate designs, huge projects that cost trillions of VND such as the Dragon bridge, Golden bridge, Thuan Phuoc bridge, Han River bridge and so on. Standing on Thuan Phuoc bridge gives you a panoramic view of the city.
9. Top-notch amusement parks
Sit back and enjoy the ride like, you know, roller-coasters. Once in Da Nang, you’ll never run out of ideas for entertainment. There are amusement parks, shopping centres and plenty of hidden corners. We bet your kids are screaming in excitement (if you have any). Ba Na Hill (link) is an amazing getaway for travelers whether you’re a family, a group of friends or a couple. Immerse yourself in the awe-inspiring view from the cable car ride – the longest in the world – as you’re going up above the luscious green hill. When you reach the top, enjoy cool weather and explore this beautiful French Medieval Village. From drone camera view, it looks like a castle in the sky. There will be many fantastic games and photo spots awaiting for you.
10. Luxurious resorts
