5C5G Guide > Vietnam > Da Nang

Da Nang, the fourth largest city in Vietnam, is an excellent base for uncovering the charming cultural heritages of central Vietnam. With its exceptional tourist-friendliness, the city offers a harmonious blend of rich history, modern cleanliness, and great safety. Along its coastline, you'll find over 30 kilometers of pristine beaches, including My Khe Beach, renowned as one of Vietnam's most breathtaking coastal destinations.

Venturing beyond the city, travelers can embark on an exploration of three UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Immerse yourself in the mesmerizing beauty of the Marble Mountains, wander through the enchanting streets of Hoi An Ancient Town, and marvel at the grandeur of the majestic Hue Imperial City. Additionally, don't miss the opportunity to visit Ba Na Hills, a popular amusement complex nestled 1,487 meters above sea level. Built on the site of the former summer retreat for French aristocrats during the colonial era, it offers breathtaking views and a refreshingly cool climate.
