Da Nang is the third largest city in Vietnam after Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi. The city is known for its wide, clean sidewalks for pedestrians and nighttime glare. In Da Nang, there is also the only 4 star hotel, the Mercure Da Nang French Village, to book online you can visit http://www.mercure-danang-banahills-french-village.com/

This seaside city is also a United States military base in Vietnam. This time I will share the story of my trip to an international backpacker forum when visiting Da Nang, Vietnam.

If you visit the city of Da Nang, one of the great places to visit is Ba Na Hills, a recreation area that can be taken about 45 minutes if you take a car from the city center.

To reach this place, visitors must ride the “Cable Car”. This cable car track is one of the longest and highest in the world. With a length of 5 km, you will hang over a height of 4,230 feet for about 15-20 minutes for a single trip. Interestingly, this tour is surrounded by views of mountains, rivers and waterfalls.

The entrance ticket includes a round-trip cable car, a few games and a flower garden with a Giant Buddha statue, except to enter the Wax Museum. Visitors must pay another 60,000 VND

Da Nang

Da Nang is the largest city in Central Vietnam. Formerly Da Nang was the center of the US water base during the Vietnam War, but today it is the most modern city compared to other cities in Vietnam. Being there feels like in a developed country because the building is relatively new and clean. Da Nang is centered on the Han River which is connected by 2 beautiful bridges, the Tran Thi Ly Bridge which resembles a sailboat and the Dragon Bridge in the shape of a dragon. At night, the two bridges glow in color so they are cool to be photographed. Even now there is a Sun Wheel, a 115 meter tall Ferris wheel.

Da Nang beach

Da Nang is a hub for visiting historic sites that are listed on UNESCO Heritage Sites such as Hue (imperial palace that resembles the Forbidden City in Beijing), Hoi An (15-19 century ancient city) and My Son (Hindu temple complex from 4-14 centuries). Another reason for tourists to Da Nang is the beach tour. East of Da Nang, there is a long white sandy beach, complete with luxury resorts – even one of Forbes’ World’s Most Luxurious Beach. Da Nang is favored by foreign and local tourists. MICE events (Meetings, Incentives, Conferencing, Exhibitions) on an international scale are often held there.

Marble Mountains

The highlight of Da Nang tourism is the Marble Mountains, which is a series of 5 hills which, if translated, are called Land of Mountain, Water, Fire, Wood and Iron – each with a cave and a Buddha statue. If you have a minute, just go to Thuy Son (Mount Air) because you can ride using the elevator. The view from the top is cool! While the latest tourism site not far from Da Nang is Than Tai Hotspring. The extent of 165 hectares at the foot of the mountain, consisting of various hot and cold water bathing pools, including Japanese-style onsen.
