Travel tips for tourists coming to Da Nang

Last month I took a car from Hue to Da nang and had a wonderful time in Da nang. After visiting Da nang, I continued the trip from Da nang to Hoi an. Da nang is such a good city to visit that visiting Da nang will be always in my memory.

Like other people,  when I came to a new place like Da nang, I always wondered what i would do, where to go, what to do, where to stay at night and what to eat in this city. The most important question is how to have the best trip, but save time and money. Today I want to share for you, tourists coming to Da nang some travel experience and tips so that you will have more information to plan a good trip.

Visiting Da nang before going to Hoi an

The third largest city in Vietnam, Da Nang is in close proximity to Hue- 3 hours North and Hoi An– 30 minutes South, which makes it a perfect stop point for those who need a break from the touristy areas. Da Nang is growing into one of the most organized urban areas, with attractive beach front villas on the one side and Han River flows on the other.

Talk about how to go to Da nangHue Private car seemed to be very convenient and safe for me. It’s also cheap and flexible. Therefore, it should be the first choice to start a good trip.

Before going to Da nang, you should think about the weather. If you want to go to the beach, the best time for you to visit Da Nang is from March to mid-September because this is the sunny season in Vietnam. If you come to Da nang at this time, the sky is blue, clear and perfect for the beach. The hottest months are May-August (30-38°C). From January to March, it can be quite chilly (lowest temperature: ~16°C), therefore it’s not a good time for the beach if you’re from a tropical country. The sky may be unclear, cloudy and gray. You should also avoid late September, October and November as it rains a lot.

Da Nang is one of the cleanest cities in Vietnam, with rapid growth. Da nang is a great tourist city with many natural beauty spots such as Ba na hills, Son tra peninsula, Marble Moutains,..and many amusement parks such as Bai But,Bai Rang….Da nang  also built many extremely beautiful and unique bridges with architectural legend  such as Dragon Bridge, Tran Thi Ly Bridge, Han River Bridge… Each bridge has a private character and is the esplanade, fun city sightseeing for travelers to Danang.

If you have 2 days in Da nang, you should go to Ba na hills at the first day. At the top of Ba Na hills is a park featuring a replica European castle, and a spectacular underground amusement park carved into the mountain, featuring many types of rides. After visiting Ba na hills, let’s spend a night walking on the bridges, dancing or entertaining in some bars or club near the Han river. The next day, you can visit Da nang city, including some famous places such as Marble mountains, Linh Ung pagoda, My Khe beach, Cham museum... After that, think about taking a boat trip cruising along the Han River to enjoy the fresh air and see the magic light of the city. Or you can sit on the solar cycle of “Sun wheel” to have a panoramic view of Danang City at night.

If you want to visit the city, but still close to transportation centers , I recommend choosing the riverside hotel. The hotels are cheap, affordable, new, and prestigious : Da Nang coastal hotels, Gia Khanh motels : 245 Ho Nghinh (200k / day). Here, you can just walk out of the Han River: 5 minutes; both are within walking distance of the Pham Van Dong and My Khe beach. If you want to stay in luxury resort 5 star standard, you should stay at the luxury Furama Resort, Olalany, Alacate, Muong Thanh hotel …

Da Nang is a place for authentic local cuisines. Due to its low volume of visitors, residents’ lives take place the way they have been for years. Many street vendors can be found in the market and along the Han River. I tried a lot of food in this city, but I want to recommend you My Quang (Quang noodle)and Bun Cha ca. They are very delicious and special.


If you need to set the romantic feeling, book a dinner at a restaurant along the Han River. There are many restaurants along My Khe Beach, a few outstanding names such as My Hanh, For You, Ngoc Suong, Phuoc Thai …offer fresh seafood at unbeatable prices.

After at least 2 days in Da nang, you can continue your trip to Hoi an with Da nang to Hoi an service. Hope you will have a good trip in Da nang with these travel tips I have just shared above.
