  • Han River Bridge is a popular spot for taking photos on your Vietnam vacation.

Danang is the largest city in Central Vietnam and is located in the middle between Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City. Situated on the coast of the South China Sea at the mouth of the Han River, Danang serves as a major port city and the leading industrial centre of Central Vietnam.

With its diversified industries including machinery, electrics, chemicals, shipbuilding, textile, and fishing, Danang’s tourism industry continues to grow with the construction of new resorts, golf course, apartments, and villas.

Danang first became a major port city in the 19th century, surpassing Hoi An for European trade. As the French continued to strengthen their stronghold on Vietnam, French Indochina was established, making Danang an important location. Danang later served as a major port city and air base for South Vietnam and US Armed Forces during the Vietnam War.

Ruled for centuries by the Champa Kingdom, the Hindu-practicing Cham civilization, Danang is an ancient city. The Cham Museum, located in the heart of Danang, features mostly sandstone sculptures of various Hindu icons. Featuring sensual artwork, these statues were brought from My Son, a cluster of abandoned and ruined Hindu temples, located approximately 69km southwest of Danang, and recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

With the exception of the South China Sea to its east, Danang is surrounded by mountainous beauty to be experienced on a Vietnam vacation The Marble Mountains, located south of Danang, are a cluster of five marble and limestone karsts, all named after the five elements (earth, metal, wood, fire, and water). A famous tourist destination, Marble Mountains features caves, tunnels, several Buddhist sanctuaries, Buddhist and Hindu grottoes, and paths leading to the top of the cliff, which offers gorgeous views.

Surrounded by various UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the neighbouring towns of Hue, Hoi An, and My Son, Danang acts as a gateway to these attractions but offers tourists on Vietnam vacation packages many of their own. Influenced by French colonial architecture, Danang’s beauty extends beyond its beaches and mountains, while offering wonderful dining and shopping experiences, including a visit to Han Market. Given its prime location, Danang is an ideal tourist destination.
