Da Nang

Things to see and do

  • Cham Museum
    4 stars

    The Cham Museum is the main attraction of Da Nang and is worth the trip, even if you're coming all the way from Hoi An. This old sandstone building houses an excellent collection of Cham art and sculpture. The museum was completed in 1916, with Da Nang chosen as the location due to its proximity to ... read more

  • Cao Dai Temple
    2.5 stars

    Located in a quiet neighbourhood in central Da Nang, the local Cao Dai temple is worth a quick visit, though it's not nearly as spectacular as the temple at the sect's headquarters in Tay Ninh. It's simple from the outside, and an inattentive passerby could easily miss it. Try to take a peek inside ... read more

  • Ho Chi Minh Museum
    3.5 stars

    This three-storey museum is packed with more exhibits than you'll be able to take in during one visit, and is a sensible excursion for museum lovers curious about Vietnam's history, as told from the perspective of the current regime. Outside the museum is a sizeable collection of tanks, guns and ... read more

  • Da Nang Water Park
    2.5 stars

    The Da Nang Water Park has a wave pool, a kiddie pool full of fountains and a small collection of big slides and loopy tunnel slides. The grounds are getting a bit weedy and neglected and it's never very full, but it's a fun diversion for half a day and well worth the admission price, especially if ... read more

  • Son Tra Peninsula (Monkey Mountain)
    4.5 stars

    A great motorbike trek is available out of Da Nang that we highly recommend. It's about 40 km total that takes you across a road that crests 16km across the top of the Son Tra Mountains. The road is usually deserted and the views are fantastic in fair weather. When it's a bit cloudy, the mist ... read more

  • Ba Na Mountain
    4 stars

    Located about 45km west of Da Nang, Ba Na Mountain was used during the French colonial period as a summer retreat. In the old days, the French colonials used to be born up the winding, 16km road to the top on palanquins. Nowadays, the road is well paved, but still very steep. At the top are the ... read more

  • Suoi Mo
    3.5 stars

    At the base of Ba Na Mountain, about 30km west of Da Nang, Suoi Mo is another attraction worth a visit, typically in combination with a trek up the mountain. There's a well-marked road heading north -- you'll be asked to pay 5,000 VND at the gate, and the spring is 2km further up the road. You'll ... read more

  • Nam O Beach
    2.5 stars

    Nam O Beach borders on the Bay of Da Nang, which is just north of the Son Tra peninsula -- you can get a good view of it from Monkey Mountain. It's a fine beach, but with all the great sand stretching from Cua Dai up to My Khe, there's precious little reason visit. The local government would like ... read more

  • Tien Sa Beach
    2.5 stars

    This very local, very Vietnamese beach is located on the western side of the Son Tra peninsula, east of the Han River. Across the river, the beach is called Nam O along the shores of the Bay of Da Nang. It's a relatively small beach with calm waters in a sheltered cove, and some interesting rocks ... read more
