Exploring Danang: Vietnam’s Best Travel Destination
Lies in the middle of Vietnam and with its magically economical
development, Danang is fast becoming a modern world-class
city, yet manages to retain its cultural charm. High-rise skyscrapers
stand adjacent to local markets, the beaches are always amazingly
clean and cyclos are still present in traffic despite the growing
emergence of cars. Got the most love from young Vietnamese
travelers, Danang certainly is the most attractive destination.
Established by the Champa Kingdom in the second century,
the name Danang derives from a Cham word meant ’opening
of a large river’. Recognizing its value as a major port, French
imperialists began their Vietnamese campaign in Danang and
the city rose in prominence. Now, it is the fifth most populated
city in the country.
The surrounding area is known for its natural wonders, most
notably the stretch of beaches offering pristine sand and gentle
waters. In the mountains, head to Ba Na Hill, a former French
hill station converted into a vacation hub. With hotels, restaurants,
historical sites and children’s Fantasy Park and arcade, this idyllic
jungle hideaway is perfect for the whole family.
Danang city is also famous for its bridges. The Dragon Bridge,
which can actually breathe fire, is one of Danang’s most impressive
structures and a must-see sight.
Take a late night walk along the Han River, relax in a coffee
shop on its bank and wait until 1 am to witness the Han Bridge
rotate 90 degrees to allow larger ships into the city port, definitely
worth staying up for.
Definitely this is a notable travel destination for your next holidays!
