My family is planning to go to the beach. One of my friends suggested that we should choose Nha Trang or Da Nang. Which one is better for a family trip?
Can you guys give me some recommendations for places to visit and accommodation?
NOT Nha Trang, famous for being the resort of Russians tourists, mostly drunk from dawn to dusk. Danang is in a beautiful bay, but the famous China Beach is lined with pretentious expensive resorts and has not charm whatsoever; Go to fantastic HOI AN; 34 km south of Danang, where you have the beautiful beach of Ang Bon (and Cua Dai, but big resorts also) + the very charming Cham Island, with its beach coves.

Da Nang actually offers a lot, I found the beaches to be really serene in February (though probably a bit chilly for a swim) and there weren't any pretentious resorts - rather, there were not many people right on the beach. Better to stay in town so you can get to hang out with locals at the bar scene - it is a real lively Vietnamese city. Hoi'an is also nice, but felt a bit of a back-packer ghetto when I was there compared to the more natural feel of Da Nang. Either way, stay in the area for a week with a rented motorbike and you can explore all over.
So sorry that I am busy working so I cant have time to check all your reply. And my younger sister already booked Nha Trang flight cause there was a big promotion for Nha Trang ticket. I cannot change so I have to prepare for a trip to Nha Trang. A big pity to read all the comments now (
If you ever went to Nha Trang, please give me some advice
