Reasons why you should visit Da Nang
For the foreigner traveler, Da Nang might fall insignificant due to its lack of long-standing and unique cultural attractions than its neighbors – Hoi An and Hue. However, if you ask the locals if they want to travel to Da Nang, most of the time, the answer will be “Yes.” Now, let’s find out why this city is so loved even it seems to be low-key and unpopular.
The “cleanest city” of Vietnam
The cities of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh are overpopulated and the environment is not protected with great care. Unlike these cities, Da Nang is well-appreciated in term of environment protection. The city will change your impression of Vietnam cities as noisy and smoky. That is also one of the reasons why people living in other parts of the country are so eager and curious to know how it feels to live in Da Nang.
Incredible cheap price
One advantage of visiting or living in Da Nang is that the price is cheaper than other cities, given that other big cities in Vietnam are already “cheap.” The reason for its incredibly cheap price might come from the fact that the tourism in this city is not as blooming as in Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh, as you all know, tourism comes at a price.
One thing that cities like Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh could not afford is seafood. As a coastal city, Da Nang has a wonderful scene of seafood. The fish are fresh, you can even buy fishes and other sea creature right after it is caught. If you can make it to the beach, there would be nothing better with 100% fresh food which is available on the beaches for you to choose. You can also enjoy seafood with an open view of the beach. That’s “luxurious.”
Nature is definitely the most important reason why you should visit Da Nang. Even not having plenty of cultural attraction, Da Nang still outshines other cities with its wonderful nature.
Da Nang’s landscape is diverse: You can see mountains, stunning beaches, and charming river. Beaches in Da Nang are precious with a broad and endless blue horizon, perfect blue water, white sand, and sunlight, all of which make it one of the most worth-visiting beaches in Vietnam.
It is a huge mistake not mentioning the gorgeous Marble Mountains in Da Nang. The Marble Mountains is the main attraction of the city. You can hike and enjoy the impressive scenery from the top of the mountain.
Han River is also an important sight of Da Nang. It is also the soul of the city and a favorite hang-out place of the locals. The Dragon Bridge crossing the river is an iconic image of the city. Enjoying the cool breeze and adoring the dazzling light of the city while strolling along the bridge is the most worth-trying experience in Da Nang.
In addition to all these great things, Da Nang also scores with other strengths. You will not see the traffic jam and the insane transportation like that of Hanoi or Ho Chi Minh. It is also a great advantage that Da Nang has an international airport. Added to that, it also makes a convenient destination as it is next to other incredible places like Hoi An or Hue.
