Da Nang, located in the Central, is one of the biggest cities in Vietnam, yet it feels smaller and tamer than Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi. Framed by mountains, national parks, and ocean, Da Nang feels submerged in nature. Below are the attractive destinations you will visit in this Da Nang city tour.
Da Nang’s must-see, Marble Mountain, is a collection of limestone karsts rather than a single peak. This is the place of a spiritual complex adorned with shrines, pagodas and temples many hundreds of years old. Hike up carved stone steps to access caves dripping with prehistoric vines, and ornate pagoda rooftops.
You may have heard about Da Nang’s My Khe beach, one of the world’s most beautiful beaches. My Khe beach is immaculate and expansive, an ample strip of white sand that somehow remains relatively deserted until late afternoon, despite its universal popularity.
First-time visitors to the beaches of Da Nang would probably be intrigued by a giant Guanyin statue standing tall on the side of the mountain to their left. This statue – the tallest Guanyin statue in Vietnam – also marks the site of the Linh Ứng Pagoda, a must-see attraction of the central city. Every now and then, you can also spot a pig-tailed macaque, an endangered species living in the mountain, venturing into the pagoda’s grounds to ask for treats from tourists.
The Cham Museum houses the most extensive collection of Cham sculpture and artwork in the world. Whenever visiting the museum, you still perceive an individual atmosphere particular to this place, the reverie of reminiscences. Coming to visit the museum, it seems that you can see again the glorious time of the past of a nation for whom both the passion for art and the creative talent were already at a very high level. When we stand before these artistic masterpieces we can comprehend the noblest ideal of art, the creation of the infinite from the finite.
Han market, the most important trading point of Danang, is popular among locals and tourists alike. In addition to the variety of choices, Han Market also attracts a lot of people by its relatively low prices because it functions as the center where goods are gathered before being distributed to smaller markets in the province. Han market is ideal for those looking for some Danang’s souvenirs before heading home. Some specialties that can be found in Han market include: Ly Son garlic, Chili paste, dried rice crackers, and dried squids. Stock up on fresh fruits and local snacks are also good choices.
