Da Nang Itinerary
Da Nang is a beautiful coastal city and a convenient transit point to world cultural heritages such as Hue, My Son, Hoi An, and the world biosphere reserve area of Cu Lao Cham.
How many days in Da Nang is sufficient?
Here are the suggestions for 1, 2, 3 days in Da Nang with a sample itinerary.
Most of us before traveling ask that question.
Unless we have lots of time to travel, knowing a reasonable time to spend in Da Nang is importation to plan your trip to Vietnam.
Although it depends on your schedule, in my opinion, you should stay in Da Nang for at least three days to have a glimpse of the city.
Vietnam Airlines, Bamboo Air, and Vietjet offer frequent flights from major cities in Vietnam such as Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh to Da Nang.
I’d suggest choosing an early flight to Da Nang, so you can arrive there in the morning and spend most of your day.
After arriving in Da Nang and checking in your hotel, you can start your trip to Son Tra peninsula.
Linh Ung Pagoda, Ban Co Peak are famous attractions that you should not miss.
Linh Ung Pagoda has an altitude of nearly 700m, facing the sea and having the back as a vast primeval forest.
Visiting this pagoda, you should not forget the 67m high statue of Quan The Bodhisattva to pray for peace and good luck for the family.
From Linh Ung Pagoda to the North of Son Tra Peninsula, you will see the multi-heritage tree. This banyan tree is over 1,000 years old, 26m high, and has about 26 large groomsmen.
Moving up, you will reach Ban Co Peak, which is an ideal place to enjoy the panoramic view of Da Nang.
After the trip to Son Tra peninsula, relaxing on the beach sounds like a great idea.
At night, don’t forget to check out the eateries in the city. I love the food in Da Nang. They’re tasty and cheaper than my city – Saigon.
Visiting Da Nang without a trip to Ba Na Hills is a huge miss.
Ba Na Hills has been a famous amusement park in Vietnam thanks to its unique icon – the Golden bridge.
One of my favorite experience when visiting Ba Na Hills is sitting the cable car and enjoy the scenery. The mountains among the fog create a beautiful landscape picture.
Furthermore, the flower gardens and French village will spoil you with unforgettable life photos and memories. The wine cellar is also the highlight of this amusement park.
You can also try riding the mountain train and free game in the 3-story Game zone.
On the last day, you should visit the Da Nang Cham Museum and go shopping in the bustling Han market.
You’ll get a chance to learn about Cham culture through valuable preserved images, documents, artifacts, and display.
If you’d like to enjoy the fresh air and beautiful coast, a trip to Cu Lao Cham is highly recommended.
From Da Nang, you can purchase a speed boat to Cu Lao Cham or join a one-day tour.
If you have more day in Da Nang, don’t miss the trip to Ngu Hanh Son and Hoi An. Although you can visit these sites in one day, a separate trip to Hoi An would be better.
Also, you can take a day trip to Nui Than Tai hot springs park or My Son sanctuary.
Although most travelers overlook Da Nang and just head to Hoi An instead, this city has lots of things to offer.
