Somewhere between idyllic coastal resort and bustling metropolis, Da Nang – situated on Central Vietnam’s beautiful China Sea Coast, midway between Ha Noi and Ho Chi Ming City – is a city of diverse delights, a destination popular with sun-seekers and lovers of rich history and culture alike.

Many visitors to Da Nang are drawn to the city by its 30 Kilometres of breathtaking coastline and its close proximity to some of Vietnam’s most spectacular beaches and seaside scenes. My Khe Beach, a glorious stretch of white-sands lapped by warm, crystal-clear waters is a popular spot for sunbathing, water sports and for sampling local food and drink at the bars and restaurants on the promenade, while less developed Long Co Beach nearby makes for a peaceful haven for relaxation.

Head inland away from the coast and Da Nang reveals many cultural and city sightseeing highlights too. Among the hectic streets, you’ll find interesting historical sites including the Buddhist Phap Lam Pagoda – a serene escape from the hustle and bustle – and Da Nang Cathedral, one of Vietnam’s most unique Catholic churches. Elsewhere, modern architectural gems, such as the iconic Dragon Bridge and remarkable Golden Bridge – an impressive structure ‘held up’ by imposing concrete hands, overlooking the picturesque Bá Ná Hills – provide unmissable photo opportunities.
