Areas & Neighborhoods in Da Nang

Hai Chau

Streets lined with palm trees, busy markets, and rows of small boats bob along the Han River's western shore in Da Nang's central district. Just a short drive away from the city's main airport, Hai Chau is packed with bustling street food vendor scenes, high-rise hotels, museums, cultural centers, and historic landmarks.

Son Tra

Dominated by a forested mountain ridge, this peninsula separates the ocean from the mouth of the Han River and Da Nang Bay. Sandy beaches run along most of the district's eastern edge, a nature preserve covers most of Son Tra Mountain, and the waters are filled with vibrant coral reefs waiting to be explored.

Ngu Hanh Son

Named for the marble and limestone hills that tower over the neighborhood, this district has beachside resorts facing the eastern sea and Buddhist temples along the Co Co River. Almost halfway between Da Nang's downtown and the historic city of Hoi An, the district is a good place to find some unspoiled coastline and some of the biggest landmarks around.

What to See in Da Nang

The Han River is a prime focal point for local life, and it offers a great way to see the city. Take a walk over Vietnam's first swinging bridge, or visit during the evening hours to capture postcard-worthy shots of its illuminated spans. Active travelers can get out of town in the Marble Mountains and the Son Tra Peninsula, filled with terrific views of land and sea and puncuated with peaceful Buddhist sanctuaries like the Linh Ung Pagoda. History buffs can learn about some of Da Nang's earliest residents at the Museum of Cham Sculpture, while sun-seekers and families might enjoy most of their time simply relaxing palm tree-shaded beaches.

Sightseeing in Da Nang

The range of options for adventure in Da Nang make it easy to keep busy in whatever side of the city you decide to spend your stay. In the center of town, you can have a guide show you around the Da Nang's museums and bridges during the day, while a night excursion can show you around the busiest markets and street food scenes.

If you want an adventure that takes you a little farther afield, you can go rappelling down the side of the Marble Mountains or head inland for a cable car ride that gives you a terrific view from a resort atop the Ba Na Hills. Head north to see the home of the last Vietnamese emperors in the Imperial City of Hue, or take a day trip to visit the temples of My Son and the ancient town of Hoi An, where visitors seem to step back in time surrounded by UNESCO-listed temples and quiet streets.
