An Ultimate Da Nang Travel Guide:

written by a local

Introduction

Welcome to our Da Nang Ultimate Travel Guide! Before we dive in, let us introduce ourselves and tell you why we created this guide. We’re Nguyen and Tien, a travel-loving couple who enjoy exploring new cultures and perspectives.

Over the past decade, we’ve traveled extensively throughout Vietnam and gained valuable local knowledge that we’re eager to share. In 2018, we left our 10-year stay in Saigon to settle in Da Nang/Hoi An. We fell in love with the city’s lively atmosphere, delicious food, friendly locals, and beautiful beaches.

For us, Da Nang is a wonderful place to call home, and we want to help make your visit to this city unforgettable. So, let’s get started with some insider tips and tricks to help you get the most out of your Da Nang experience.

Da Nang at a glance

Da Nang is located right in the middle of Vietnam, so you can fly from Da Nang to either Ho Chi Minh City or Ha Noi in just 1 hour and 15 minutes.

Did you know that Da Nang was once part of French Indochina? That’s right! The French developed lots of infrastructure here, like trading posts, banks, restaurants, schools, and churches. You can still see many of these old buildings and churches dating back 100 years while walking around the city center along the Han River.

During the Vietnam War, Da Nang served as a major United States military base, and by the end of 1965, Da Nang Air Base was the busiest air base in all of Asia! Today, Da Nang is an important economic and educational center of the Central Coast of Vietnam, attracting lots of people from neighboring provinces to come study and work here.

One of the things that we’re super proud of is how clean the streets are in Da Nang. It’s earned the nickname “Singapore of Vietnam” for being the most livable city in the country. The city has implemented a variety of measures to keep it clean, like banning the burning of votive paper and imposing harsh fines for littering on the beaches.

Now, let’s talk about why you should visit Da Nang! The natural scenery is incredible, with beautiful beaches and mountains, and an amazing street food scene.

And the city has recently added some awesome festivals, like the Fireworks Festival, making it one of Vietnam’s top entertainment destinations. Trust us, you won’t regret visiting this amazing city!

Arriving and leaving Da Nang

PLANE: Da Nang Airport has two terminals: domestic and international, and they are just a five-minute walk apart.

Despite its smaller size compared to some other airports in Asia, such as Singapore’s Changi Airport or Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi Airport, Da Nang Airport is modern and well-equipped. When you arrive at the International terminal, you can take a taxi for a 15-minute ride to most hotels in the city. The city’s taxi service is highly regulated, and you can expect to pay around 17,000 VND/km. If you prefer to use Grab Car, you will need to head to the domestic terminal to find the Grab Car station, which is just 50m from the Domestic Arrival Gate.

If you’re staying at a hotel outside the city center or in Hoi An (which is about 25km away), you can pre-book a car for a quick and hassle-free transfer. It’s worth noting that the bus service between Da Nang and Hoi An is currently closed due to the pandemic and has not yet resumed.

TRAIN: Taking a train is an unforgettable experience that you won’t want to miss. We have traveled extensively throughout Vietnam by train, and it’s the perfect option for covering long distances, like the 16-17 hour trip from Ha Noi to Da Nang or Ho Chi Minh City to Da Nang.

The trains offer both 6-bed and 4-bed cabin compartments, each equipped with air conditioning and an electrical socket. Based on our experiences, we highly recommend choosing the 4-bed cabin for a more comfortable journey and a peaceful night’s sleep. The 6-bed compartment is quite small, even for Vietnamese people.

When you arrive at Da Nang Train Station, you’ll be pleased to know it’s located right in the city center, so you won’t have to travel far to reach your hotel. Taxis and Grab cars are both readily available from the station, making transportation a breeze.

BUS: If you take the bus from neighboring cities such as Quy Nhon, Nha Trang, or Hue, the bus will drop you off at the Da Nang bus station, which is about 10km from most hotels, so taking a Grab Car or Grab Bike would be a good option.

Grab Car just had their own pickup lane at the airport. After booking your car, you can just follow the sign.

Best time to visit Da Nang

When planning a trip to Da Nang, it’s important to consider the best time to visit in order to make the most of your trip. The period from June to August in Da Nang can be quite hot, with temperatures often reaching 28–35°C (82–95°F) and occasionally reaching 40°C (104°F) during the daytime hours. It can be uncomfortable to be outdoors during these times.

If you’re planning to visit Da Nang in December or January, make sure to pack a jacket as the lowest temperature can reach as low as 15 degrees, with a real feel of 12-13 degrees. I’ve met so many people who said “I thought Vietnam is a tropical country, I’d have brought my thin jacket” It’s always better to be prepared.

Personally, we love Da Nang during the months of March through October. The weather during this time tends to be warm and sunny, making it perfect for sightseeing and exploring. Da Nang is famous for its beautiful beaches, and during this season, the water tends to be crystal clear, perfect for swimming and sunbathing. Additionally, many exciting events and festivals take place during this time, adding to the already vibrant atmosphere of this stunning city.

 Let us sum up the best times to visit Da Nang for you.

March and April: fantastic weather for outdoor activities with clear blue skies. The water is swimmable, but still chilly.

May is the best month because the temperature is just right, the sky is blue, and the sea is warm and crystal clear.

June and July can get pretty hot, so if you’re planning to hit the beach, go early in the morning or late in the afternoon when it’s not so scorching. The water is amazing, though!

August is similar to June and July, but not as hot.

September and October are the stormy months in Da Nang, but you can still hit the beach in September if the storms somehow can miss your plan.

November and December are typically rainy and overcast, but it’s still a great time to visit Da Nang. It’s a bit quiet with no activities or festivals, and the temperature drops a bit.

January and February are the end of the transition between winter and the dry season. There may still be some rain, but you’ll also get more sunny days.

Where to stay in Da Nang

If you’re planning a trip to Da Nang, you’ll want to know where the best area to stay is. It’s pretty easy to figure out because the city is divided into two main areas: the cityside and the beachside. Most people just call it that, so it’s simple to explain where things are.

The cityside is the place to go if you’re looking for delicious local food. There aren’t many high-end hotels or resorts in this area, but if you want to experience the local lifestyle, it’s a great choice.

Danang’s coastline stretches 30 kilometers from Hai Van Pass to Hoi An, and can be divided into four parts: Nguyen Tat Thanh Beach, Man Thai Beach, My Khe Beach, and Resort Beach. I color-coded the maps below, so you can check where you would want to stay.

Nguyen Tat Thanh Beach goes from Hai Van Pass to Son Tra peninsula. Unfortunately, there’s been little investment in infrastructure, services, tourist facilities, and other public utilities along the coast. The beach is more popular with the locals.

Man Thai Beach is located on the south side of the Son Tra Peninsula and is more popular with locals. At the base of the Son Tra Peninsula lies the Man Thai Fishing Village, which is the city’s main source of seafood. Be here early in the morning; you’ll be surprised by all the activities, such as selling and buying the overnight catch. There are many hotels along the beach, pretty good place to stay if you want to stay away from the touristy area.

My Khe Beach is the city’s central beach, offering a range of accommodation options from low-budget to 5-star hotels. You can find all of these options along the beach. This long coastline is always packed with locals and tourists, especially in the summer. My Khe Beach is well-maintained and equipped with all the necessary utilities. Moreover, with its lighting installation, it is the only beach in Da Nang that allows one to wander along the shore at night.

The Resort Beach: The long coastline from My Khe Beach to Hoi An is blocked by a line of resorts, many of which have been built in the last 5 years. There are only a couple of ways for locals to enter the beach.

An Thuong is a popular tourist hub, with restaurants, bars, pubs, and hotels catering to tourists. You can find everything you want just around the corner. The neighborhood is far different from other chaotic, tourist-oriented neighborhoods we’ve been to, such as Bui Vien in Ho Chi Minh City, the Old Quarter in Hanoi, and Khaosan Road in Bangkok. It is a nice place with a mix of locals and all the services tourists need. Therefore, we would recommend you stay in An Thuong if you are only in Da Nang for a short stay.

The cityside: If you want to be in the thick of it all, cityside should be your go-to. Just like any other Vietnamese city, the downtown area is bustling from dawn to dusk with markets lining the main streets and plenty of restaurants and bars for those who enjoy the nightlife. It’s best to stick close to the river if you’re going between the Han River Bridge and Dragon Bridge. One of the best things about the city is its food; you can easily wander around the streets and find delicious food around every corner. If you want to experience a memorable Da Nang with friendly locals and authentic food, the city side would be a better choice.

How to get around Da Nang

 Da Nang is a great place to explore on foot, as the streets are clean and the traffic is far from the chaos in HCMC or Hanoi. However, if you need to travel farther distances, Grab Cars are better options. Make sure to download the app before traveling to Vietnam.

Staying in An Thuong would be a good choice if you enjoy taking walks to cafes and bars. You can take a taxi or Grab to visit some further tourist attractions like the Son Tra Peninsula, Marble Mountain, or even Hoi An.

Prices and expenses in Da Nang

 Compared to big cities like HCMC or Ha Noi, Da Nang is a small city, and it’s generally 15-20% cheaper to live there. So, that’s good news for your wallet! When it comes to eating out, the cost of a meal at a restaurant in Da Nang varies depending on the restaurant and the type of meal you’re having.

A simple meal can cost around 40,000 VND (about $2 USD), while a fancier meal could cost upwards of 500,000 VND (about $25 USD). Here’s another good thing about Da Nang – overcharging foreigners is pretty rare there! You can rest assured that you’ll be charged fair prices in most places you visit.

If you’re a digital nomad looking to settle down in Da Nang, you’ll be happy to know that the city has become a popular destination for remote workers. With its modern amenities, fast internet connection, and beautiful beaches and mountains, it’s easy to see why! A furnished one-bedroom apartment typically costs around 8 million Vietnamese Dong (350 USD) per month. Now, it’s time to say to your boss “I quit”. 

What to do in Da Nang

 There are so many things you can do in Da Nang depending on your travel style. Here is a list of things you should do in Da Nang; some of the activities may be a bit touristy, while others are less known but still worth a try.

 Sunbathing on Da Nang beach.

Da Nang’s beach is a must-visit if you’re looking for a place to soak up the sun. The beach has a long stretch of soft sand and crystal-clear waters that make it perfect for a relaxing day out. Don’t be fooled by the peacefulness of the beach – it gets pretty crowded during sunrise with locals enjoying the tranquil waves before heading back to work. Even if you’re not a morning person, taking a walk along the beach during sunrise is a must-do to witness the unique Vietnamese lifestyle.

For the best beach experience in Da Nang, head to My Khe beach. It has great facilities and amenities, with plenty of beach activities to choose from, like beach volleyball and surfing. Plus, it’s well-guarded so you can enjoy the beach without any interruptions.

 Admire Da Nang dragon bridge spits fire and water.

If you’re in Da Nang, you can’t miss the Dragon Bridge! This amazing bridge is like no other in the world, shaped like a dragon and spewing fire and water. Every Saturday and Sunday night at 9 pm, the bridge puts on a stunning show that lasts around 15 minutes. It’s super popular, so make sure you get there at least 30 minutes early to secure a good spot. Seriously, how many dragon-shaped bridges do you know that can shoot out fire and water? This one is definitely worth checking out, so don’t miss it!

 Enjoy the breeze on the Han River cruise.

If you’re looking for a chill evening activity in Da Nang, you gotta try the Han River evening cruise! It’s a great way to take in the city at night and see all the amazing bridges, especially the Dragon Bridge. Hop on board the boat between 6-8 PM and let the gentle river breeze relax you as you cruise down the Han River. The towers along the riverbanks are all lit up and the views are just stunning. 

Insider tip: Book the river cruise on Saturday and Sunday, so you can watch the water and fire show on the Dragon Bridge without a crowd. Tickets are selling fast, so you will have to book in advance.

 Day trip to Hoi An from Da Nang.

All of the tourists staying in Da Nang will take a day trip to the charming town of Hoi An, which is just a 30-minute drive away. You can rent a scooter or hire a private transfer and head out early in the morning to explore Hoi An on a bicycle. There’s so much to see in Hoi An, from the UNESCO-listed old town to the beautiful rice paddies.

In the morning, you can try some local delicacies like Cao Lau, Com Ga, or Mi Quang before taking a break at one of the rustic cafes by the rice paddies or the beach view. And don’t forget to head back to the old town for dinner and drinks while watching the traffic flow at one of the local bars. It’s a perfect day trip from Da Nang!

 Drive to Hai Van Pass.

The Hai Van Pass is a stunning mountain pass that spans 20km on the border between Thua Thien Hue Province and Danang City. It’s famous for its historical significance and beautiful landscapes, so you definitely don’t want to miss it!

To get to the top of the Hai Van Pass, you can either hire a car or ride your own motorbike. However, be warned that the pass can be challenging for inexperienced riders and it’s best to avoid it on rainy days.

Most tours start in the morning, but we think the best time to visit is in the late afternoon. We recommend starting your drive from the city center around 3 pm, so you can enjoy the pass at its most beautiful during sunset. If you decide to do the Hai van Pass in the morning, don’t forget to stop at Lap An Lagoon on your way down to the northern side – it’s definitely worth a visit!

No trip to Da Nang is complete without a drive up to Hai Van Pass

 Visit My Son Sanctuary.

It’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site that was built by the Cham people from the 4th to 15th century AD. This place is like a holy site for the Cham people, similar to Mecca for Muslims. It’s about a 1.5-hour drive from Da Nang, but it’s definitely worth it. You can explore the brick temples and get a better understanding of the ancient Champa kingdom.

Just a heads up, the site isn’t very well-explained, so it’s recommended to hire a tour guide to help you fully appreciate the site’s history and significance.

 Sunrise stand-up paddle board on the beach.

Stand-up paddle boarding has really taken off in Da Nang since 2019, especially among the locals. I first arrived in Da Nang back in 2018, it wasn’t even a thing yet! Nowadays, during the summer months, you can see hundreds of people taking their SUPs out at 5 a.m. to enjoy the first rays of sunlight and have some fun on the water. There are plenty of photo opportunities too! It may not be in any guidebook, but it’s definitely worth trying out, especially with local tourists who know the best spots.

Renting a SUP is quite affordable, starting at around 300k VND for a few hours. 

 Visit the Da Nang Museum of Cham Sculpture.

Compared to cities like HCMC or Ha Noi, Da Nang doesn’t have a lot of museums to offer tourists. However, there is one museum that stands out and is definitely worth visiting. The Da Nang Museum of Cham Sculpture is a must-visit if you’re in the city. It has an impressive collection of more than 300 Cham sculptures dating back to the 7th and 12th centuries, including both Hindu and Buddhist sculptures. We’ve been to this museum a couple of times and it’s our favorite. If you’re interested in learning more about the Champa kingdom, you can combine a visit to this museum with a trip to My Son.

 Motorbike around Son Tra peninsula in Da Nang.

If you’re looking for a place to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, Son Tra peninsula is a great option. It’s like a shield protecting Da Nang from storms and cyclones. The area is also a protected forest, which means the government has strict regulations in place to preserve it, which is great.

To explore Son Tra, we recommend going by motorbike, but be careful because the steep concrete roads can be dangerous, especially after some recent fatal accidents, the government has banned automatic scooters in Son Tra. Despite the risks, we love going to Son Tra to catch the sunset, although during the rainy season, the narrow concrete paths can be slippery with moss. You can also ride a manual scooter or hire a private transfer to tour around Son Tra, with a stop at the Linh Ung Pagoda.

 Hike around the Marble Mountains.

If you’re looking for a unique and adventurous experience in Da Nang, the Marble Mountains should definitely be on your list. These five limestone and marble hills are located just south of the city and offer stunning views of the surrounding area. I first visited the Marble Mountains in 2010, I was struck by its natural beauty and the peaceful atmosphere. As you explore the trails and staircases that wind through the hills, you’ll discover caves, pagodas, and shrines that have been built into the rock formations over the centuries. Some of the caves are truly impressive, with intricate carvings and statues that are illuminated by natural light streaming in from above.

Of course, as with any popular tourist attraction, the Marble Mountains can get crowded during peak hours from 9-12 am and 3-5 pm. If you’re looking for a more peaceful experience, I’d recommend avoiding these hours. And don’t forget to bring a good pair of shoes.

Finally, while there are some souvenir shops at the site, I have to admit that they weren’t particularly attractive to me. I prefer to focus on the natural beauty and cultural significance of the Marble Mountains, rather than buying similar souvenirs the shops are selling.

 Go shopping at Da Nang Market.

If you love shopping and exploring local markets, then Da Nang won’t disappoint you. There are two markets that you can visit in Da Nang, Han Market and Con Market, both offering a unique shopping experience.

Han Market is more popular among tourists and located right in the city center. It has a wide range of goods, including clothes, shoes, bags, souvenirs, and fresh produce. There is also a food court inside the market where you can try some delicious local dishes.

Con Market is more popular among locals and is located a little bit further from the city center. This market is larger than Han Market and offers a wider variety of goods, including electronics and household items. Like Han Market, there is also a food court inside Con Market where you can indulge in some mouth-watering street food.

Both markets are worth a visit, and it’s recommended to check out their food courts, which are like a paradise for foodies. My favorite market would be Con Market. It’s quite an amazing market exploring in Vietnam. 

 Spend a day at Ba Na Hills.

Ba Na Hills is a popular attraction in Da Nang that you don’t want to miss! It’s known for its stunning scenery and amusement park. The best way to get there is by private car, and it’s about an hour’s drive from Da Nang. Trust me, booking a private car or joining a tour is the way to go to make your trip as hassle-free as possible. The cable car ride offers breathtaking views. And you absolutely have to check out the Golden Bridge, but be warned – it can get pretty crowded. So it’s best to get there early in the day to avoid the crowds. While you’re there, take a stroll through the French Village, and explore the Fantasy Park amusement park.

If you’re planning on visiting Ba Na Hills, make sure you arrive early to beat the crowds and make the most of your day. Wear comfortable shoes and bring sunscreen and water, as you’ll be doing a lot of walking. It will take a whole day to explore Ba Na Hills, so best to plan for an easy relaxing evening after getting back from Ba Na Hills.

But I have to be honest with you if you’re a nature lover, Ba Na Hills might not be your cup of tea. It’s more geared towards family activities and amusement park lovers. But if you’re looking for a fun day out with family or friends, Ba Na Hills is the perfect destination!

 Day trip to Bach Ma National Park.

If you’re looking for a break from the hustle and bustle of Da Nang, I highly recommend a day trip to Bach Ma National Park. This natural attraction is seriously stunning, with some of the most beautiful scenery and wildlife you’ll ever see.

To get there, you can either book a private car or join a tour. I opted for the car, and let me tell you, the drive through the mountains is just breathtaking. Plus, you get to drive on the Hai Van Pass, which is an epic coastal route. When you arrive, there’s plenty to do. I highly recommend hiking up to the peak of Bach Ma Mountain. The panoramic views from the top are simply stunning. And, of course, there are plenty of waterfalls to explore, like the Do Quyen and Five Lakes waterfalls, so pack your swim wears. But honestly, the best part of the park is just soaking up all the natural beauty around you.

Just a heads up, make sure you bring insect repellent, sunscreen, and comfy shoes for hiking. And don’t forget to pack a picnic lunch to enjoy at one of the park’s gorgeous spots. Oh, and one more thing – this is definitely a full-day trip, so plan accordingly. But trust me, Bach Ma National Park is a must-visit when you’re in Da Nang.

 Go snorkeling in Cham Islands.

If you love water activities, Spending a day snorkeling in Cham Islands would be an amazing experience. These islands are a popular destination for snorkeling, known for their crystal clear waters and diverse marine life.

To get there, you’ll need to book a tour and make sure you have the proper snorkeling equipment provided. Snorkeling in the clear waters is an unforgettable experience, after snorkeling, I recommend taking a walk around the islands to discover the local culture and enjoy the serene beauty of the beaches. Make sure to bring a rashguard, your own towel, sunscreen, and a hat for sun protection. Don’t forget to bring some cash for souvenirs and drinks from local vendors. It’s a full-day trip, but believe me, it’s worth every minute.

Where to eat in Da Nang

 If you’re a foodie like me, then you’ll be thrilled to know that Da Nang has plenty of local eateries that offer authentic Vietnamese cuisine. From small restaurants run by local families to bustling street food stalls and markets. What’s even better is that these local eateries won’t break the bank, which is perfect for travelers on a budget.

 Local eateries.

Here are some of the local eateries that I love. You might have heard of some popular spots like Mi Quang Ech Bep Trang or Banh Xeo Ba Duong, which are easy to find in any guidebook. However, I want to highlight some lesser-known places that aren’t as popular with tourists.
