Hello, my friends. How are you doing? I visited Da Nang, Vietnam at the end of July and discovered many beautiful places. One of those places is Hoa Trung lake, a hidden lake near Da Nang city. One surprising thing about this place is that not many people know about it, even locals. So, are you ready to discover this beautiful place?


How to get to Hoa Trung lake from Da Nang?

You can find on Google map: Hoa Trung Lake, Da Nang, Vietnam or type the geographic coordinates: 16.0787034, 108.0568266

The easiest way is to go along the AH1 street and then go into Tan Ninh street. You can find Hoa Trung lake by going straight from this street. Tan Ninh street is still a small street so it’s quite difficult to go, but still possible for a car.

When is a perfect time to visit Hoa Trung lake?

Hoa Trung lake is full of water most of the year, so the best time to visit this lake is in October when there is not much water. During that time, the grassland will reveal itself and you can camp there.

I visit this lake at the end of July and here are pictures from my visit.

Around the area

Near the lake, you can find a beautiful rice paddle field which is just around the area on Tan Ninh Street. Also, the area is very nice and not touristic, so you can enjoy the real lifestyle of Vietnamese people.

Located 20km from the North West of Da Nang, Hoa Trung lake is a hidden gem which is waiting to be discovered.  With a stunning mountain view, Hoa Trung lake is truly nature’s great masterpiece.

I hope you will have a great time traveling to Vietnam. You can also find more places in Da Nang such as Ba Na Hills. If you’re looking for more cool places such as Cat Ba, you can find things to do in Cat Ba Vietnam here.

Thank you for reading

    It looks like you found a real gem. I love finding those off-the-beaten-path places that most people don’t know about. There are so few of them left these days, it seems.

    Hoa Trung Lake looks stunning! I actually thought at one point it could be somewhere in Austria/Switzerland given the scenery. This is definitely one place I’d love to see for myself one day, thanks for sharing.

    Wow that yellow structure really stands out against the lake! Hoa Trung Lake is so beautiful and serene, I love how still the lake is. I’ve yet to visit the motherland, but it is definitely high on the bucket list.

    I have never been to Vietnam but would like to visit one day. I really like going to places that are not as visited and this one looks perfect. The lake is so serene and peaceful looking. I could probably sit there all day and contemplate it. It does not seem like it would be difficult to reach so I will have to make sure to add this to my itinerary when I plan a trip to Vietnam.

    Hidden gems are truly a beautiful find! Especially when the locals don’t even know they exist. The lake is stunning and the rice fields are so green! I can’t wait until I can visit SE Asia!

    Da Nang is beautiful! I’ve always wanted to visit Vietnam so I am always curious to read blogs about the different places to see there. This lake is so calm, serene and picturesque. You had me at that first photo – so calm and beautiful!
