Central Vietnam is home to the azure waters of the East Vietnam Sea and the spectacular Truong Son mountain range as well as ancient cities and unique culture.
Danang is one of the largest cities in Vietnam and marks the central point of the country.
Da Nang is worth a quick look, at least half a day, for people staying in Hoi An for several days. This city is expanding like crazy, and with such beautiful beaches nearby, I have a feeling that we will be hearing a lot more about the city of Da Nang in the years to come.
Here are some tips of things to do around Danang Vietnam
Drive the Hai Van Pass
The Hai Van Pass is a 21km road which zig zags through the mountains to link Danang with Lang Co. The pass is renowned for its scenic beauty and even featured on BBC’S Top Gear!
Explore the city of Hue
Hue is a city in central Vietnam that was the seat of Nguyen Dynasty emperors and the national capital from 1802 to 1945. A major attraction is its vast, 19th-century Citadel, surrounded by a moat and thick stone walls. It encompasses the Imperial City, with palaces and shrines; the Forbidden Purple City, once the emperor’s home; and a replica of the Royal Theater.
Immerse the senses in Hoi An
Hoi An is a city on Vietnam’s central coast known for its well-preserved Ancient Town, cut through with canals. The former port city’s melting-pot history is reflected in its architecture, a mix of eras and styles from wooden Chinese shophouses and temples to colorful French colonial buildings, ornate Vietnamese tube houses and the iconic Japanese Covered Bridge with its pagoda. Take a tour by Cyclo to include the Japanese Bridge, Phung Hung old house, Phuc Kien Assembly Hall and local market.
Discover the temples of Mỹ Sơn
Mỹ Sơn is a cluster of abandoned and partially ruined Hindu temples in Quảng Nam province, central Vietnam, constructed between the 4th and the 14th century by the Kings of Champa, an Indianized kingdom of the Cham people. The temples are dedicated to the worship of the god Shiva, known under various local names, the most important of which is Bhadreshvar.
