VIETNAM – Da Nang city is located in Central Vietnam, equidistant from the capital city of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. Da Nang is also the hub of three UNESCO World Heritage Sites: the ancient capital of Hue, the old town of Hoi An, and the holy site of My Son. To the north of Da Nang is Thua Thien – Hue Province, to the west and south is Quang Nam Province, and to the east is the East Sea.
When is the Best Time to Visit Da Nang?
Da Nang serves as a transition point between the climates of northern and southern Vietnam, with the predominant tropical climate of the south. There are two distinct seasons each year: the dry season from January to July and the rainy season from August to December. Occasionally, there are short and not too harsh cold spells in the winter, but the cold is not severe.
Late December to late March: The weather is cool and pleasant, making it ideal for spring trips. Hotel and dining prices during this time are considered the most stable throughout the year. However, travelers should bring a light jacket as evenings can get chilly, and there might be occasional spring showers.
Early April to mid-September: This is the best time to visit Da Nang, but it’s also the peak summer tourism season, so it can be crowded and expensive. In April, the forests on Son Tra Peninsula change their leaves to yellow and red.
Mid-September to late December: The weather is no longer scorching hot, and occasional drizzles begin, but they don’t last long. The peak season is over, so flight tickets, accommodations, and dining are reasonably priced.
Travelers from Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City typically fly to Da Nang, with ticket prices ranging from 54,04 USD to 124,71 USD for a round trip, depending on the booking time. The flight takes approximately 1 hour.
For those with more leisurely time, you can take the train to experience the scenery along the way, especially the section passing through Hai Van Pass if you’re traveling from the north. Train tickets from Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh City to Da Nang cost between roughly 24,94 USD to 45,73 USD for a one-way journey, depending on whether you choose a soft, air-conditioned seat or a sleeper berth in a four-berth air-conditioned cabin. The travel time is about 17 to 18 hours.
If you plan to drive by car, you should allocate at least a week for your Da Nang trip and have two drivers take turns behind the wheel. Ideally, you should start from Hanoi around midday or early afternoon, spend a night in Nghe An. If you depart later, you can sleep in Thanh Hoa and head to Da Nang the following morning. On the way back, you can stop in Quang Binh for both rest and further exploration.
In Da Nang, it’s advisable to rent a motorcycle or a car for flexible transportation. Renting vehicles is quite convenient and can be arranged at the airport or your hotel, with an average cost of 4,16 USD for a motorcycle and around 41,57 USD for a car per day.
Hotels and Resorts
Tourism in Da Nang has been growing rapidly. Along the coastal road, travelers can easily find hotels with various price ranges. Additionally, Da Nang offers various types of accommodations such as homestays, apartments, and dormitory-style rooms in the city center. Depending on your budget and preferences, travelers can choose what suits them best, but it’s advisable to book in advance to avoid room shortages during weekends and peak seasons.
Since the weather in Central Vietnam can be quite chilly at night during the early part of the year, travelers should consider staying in fully equipped rooms with amenities like private bathrooms, hot water facilities, hairdryers, ironing boards, and laundry services. The prices for 4-star hotels start at around 20,79 USD per night.
Some renowned 5-star resorts and hotels in Da Nang that you can consider include InterContinental Da Nang Sun Peninsula Resort, Hyatt Regency Danang Resort and Spa, Pullman, Furama Resort Danang, Four Points by Sheraton Danang, Novotel, Hilton, Fusion Suites, and Danang Golden Bay Hotel. Room rates at these establishments range from 49,89 USD to 415,71 USD per night.
Outside the city
Beautiful destinations outside the city of Da Nang include Son Tra Peninsula, Marble Mountains (Ngu Hanh Son), Nam O Reef, and Hai Van Pass.
Son Tra Peninsula
Often referred to as the precious gem of Da Nang, Son Tra Peninsula boasts vast pristine forests and beautiful beaches such as Tien Sa, Da Den, and Bai But. The winding road along the peninsula offers panoramic views of the city from high points like Ban Co Peak, Linh Ung Pagoda, Vong Canh House, Son Tra Lighthouse, and the “Eastern Eye” radar station.
Here, travelers can engage in various exciting activities, such as snorkeling to explore coral reefs, fishing with local fishermen, helicopter tours for cityscape views, and hiking to Ban Co Peak. Especially, the Linh Ung Pagoda perched atop a hill is a must-visit spot. It houses the tallest statue of Quan The Am Bodhisattva in Vietnam, facing the sea. Inside the statue, there are 17 floors, each containing 21 Buddha statues with different postures and expressions.
On the peninsula, there are side roads leading to beautiful beaches like Bai But, Bai Nam, Bai Da Den, Bai Da, and Mui Nghe. Additionally, this area is known for the Son Tra banyan tree and the “thousand-year-old deer” banyan tree, both with unique shapes that are perfect for photography.
The peninsula is also home to hundreds of species of wildlife. Among them, the red-shanked douc langur is known as the “queen of primates” on Son Tra Peninsula, with a population of around 300 to 400 individuals, strictly protected. To spot these douc langurs, besides observing their fur colors, travelers should also listen for their calls and watch for their agile movements as they leap from branch to branch.
Please note that visitors should help preserve the natural landscape and refrain from feeding wild animals. Scooters are not allowed on certain roads, including the section from Hoang Sa Street to the thousand-year-old banyan tree, the Yết Kiêu Road intersection to Ban Co Peak – Bac Beach, and the Yết Kiêu Road intersection to Suoi Om and vice versa. These are the three main routes that residents and tourists frequently take to visit Son Tra Peninsula. Manual and automatic motorcycles are allowed.
Furthermore, Son Tra Peninsula is alluring for its pristine beaches. Tucked away in a beautiful bay, Bai But (Vinh But) is a place where the sea meets the mountains. There is also Bai Bac, a newly developed destination in Da Nang tourism, located in the northern part of Son Tra Peninsula. The sea around the peninsula features many beautiful coral reefs, but littering and some irresponsible behaviors of coral admirers such as stepping on, kicking, or breaking them have caused serious damage.
Suoi Tien is one of the major streams originating from the peak of Son Tra, which is one of the picturesque destinations with its pristine waterfalls, unique rock formations, blossoming wildflowers, and intoxicating fragrances. When you visit Suoi Tien, you’ll immerse yourself in the stunning and colorful beauty of nature.
Ba Na Hills
This tourist spot is approximately 40 km away from Da Nang. Visitors can experience cool weather and four seasons in a day when exploring prominent attractions such as Linh Ung Pagoda, Debay Wine Cellar, Le Jardin D’Amour flower garden, and the Golden Bridge. Spending the night in the French Village is also an intriguing experience for travelers to Ba Na.
Located within the Ba Na – Nui Chua Nature Reserve, Heaven’s Well offers a pristine natural landscape that serves as inspiration for backpackers who enjoy outdoor activities such as trekking, mountain climbing, camping, and river bathing.
Starting from the parking lot of the Ba Na cable car station, adventurers must conquer a winding and steep 7.5 km road, crossing icy streams and dense forests. Once you pass the initial steep ascent, the rest of the journey is relatively easy. This isolation adds to the charm of the place. Two streams from the western side of the Ba Na forest converge at a mountain pass and then flow down into Heaven’s Well.
Marble Mountains (Ngu Hanh Son)
Located 8 km from the center of Da Nang, the Marble Mountains is a place with numerous sacred temples and natural caves. Along the coastal road that leads to Hoi An, travelers will encounter the “Five Elements Mountains,” also known as Marble Mountains. These mountains, named after the five elements (Kim Son (gold), Moc Son (wood), Thuy Son (water), Hoa Son (fire) and Tho Son (earth)), each hold their own legendary stories and mysterious beauty.
To explore all the caves and temples from Quan Am Cave (Kim Son), Huyen Vi Cave (Hoa Son) to Am Phu Cave, Hoa Nghiem Cave, Linh Nha Cave, Huyen Khong Cave, Van Thong Cave, Thien Long Cave, and Thien Phuoc Dia Cave (Thuy Son), it may take you several days. Although not grandiose, the Marble Mountains offer diverse emotional experiences thanks to their sacred and mystical beauty.
Following the winding mountain paths in the Marble Mountains, travelers will unexpectedly come across various caves and temples. In Kim Son, there is Quan Am Temple and Quan Am Cave; in Hoa Son, there are Linh Son Temple, Huyen Vi Cave, Pho Da Son Temple, and Pho Da Cave; in Tho Son, there are Long Hoa Temple and Hue Quang Temple; in Thuy Son, there are Tam Thai Temple, Linh Ung Temple, Tam Ton Temple, and Tu Tam Temple.
Most of these temples are nestled against the mountains, and while not particularly high, they exude a serene and sacred atmosphere. Along with the gentle sea breeze and the lush greenery of the mountains, trees, and vegetation, travelers can easily sense a realm of tranquility and serenity.
Furthermore, if you seek adventure, you can experience mountain climbing in Van Thong Cave or rappelling from the mountain peak at a height of 25 meters.
Hai Van Pass
Hai Van Pass is approximately an hour’s motorbike ride from the center of Da Nang. The pass spans 21 kilometers, with its highest point at 496 meters above sea level. “Hai Van” translates to “Sea of Clouds,” and this location was once famously described by Jeremy Clarkson, host of the reality TV show Top Gear (UK), as “one of the most beautiful coastal roads in the world“.
Currently, there are two routes across Hai Van Pass: the Hai Van Tunnel (not suitable for motorbikes) and the Hai Van Pass road.
The Hai Van Tunnel is open daily and has a toll fee. The tunnel is closed for maintenance and cleaning between 3 AM and 4 AM daily. If you take the tunnel route, you won’t be able to enjoy the scenic views or visit some of the famous spots along Hai Van Pass.
The Hai Van Pass road is open daily and is free of charge. Travelers should choose this route if they want to experience the thrill of conquering the pass and enjoy unrestricted scenic views. However, it’s essential to reduce speed when there is fog.
During the New Year’s period, travelers can capture “cloud hunting” photos at the famous hairpin turn, Hai Van Quan Peak, the “above the clouds” garden opposite Hai Van Quan, or head down to Lang Van for a beach experience. The ideal times for sightseeing are at dawn or dusk.
