Da Nang

A curious mix of developed beachfront tourism and untouched local city life, Da Nang presents an often-overlooked but authentic and welcoming picture of central Vietnam.
Change things up with these side-trips from Da Nang: Hoi An (Spas & Japanese Covered Bridge). And it doesn't end there: explore the striking landscape at The Marble Mountains, find something for the whole family at Ba Na Hills SunWorld, make a trip to Marian Shrine of the Lady of Tra Kieu, and take in the views from Tran Thi Ly Bridge.
