Most people visiting Vietnam tend to stick to Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi, but this country has many more amazing cities in store. Da Nang is one of the very best cities you can visit over there, and there are more reasons than one why you should consider paying it a visit.

Historical Heritage

There are many historical sites and ancient temples to be found in Da Nang and its close proximity. The remains of abandoned Hindu temples Mỹ Sơn are popular day-trip destinations, but there are also many well-preserved temples in the city itself too.

Natural Beauty

The Marble Mountains are Da Nang’s number one tourist attraction, but there are many other natural wonders to see. White sand beaches along its coast are just as popular with the tourists and locals.

Local Markets

If you want to feel like a local while in Da Nang, make sure to check out its markets. Hàn Market is the first one that comes to mind, but Con Market is also worth the visit.

Architectural Wonders

Da Nang’s architecture is pretty diverse and it’s the perfect mix of new and old. Some of its most stunning architectural gems happen to be bridges, including the quirky Dragon Bridge and the picture-perfect Golden Bridge in the nearby Bà Nà Hills resort.
