Da Nang

A curious mix of developed beachfront tourism and untouched local city life, Da Nang presents an often-overlooked but authentic and welcoming picture of central Vietnam.
Get out of town with these interesting Da Nang side-trips: Hoi An (Rubin Cloth Shop, Japanese Covered Bridge, & more) and Hue (Imperial City, Thien Mu Pagoda, & more). There's lots more to do: indulge in some personalized pampering at some of the best spas, take in the spiritual surroundings of Chua Buu Dai Son, see the interesting displays at Da Nang Museum of Cham Sculpture, and don't miss a visit to Lady Buddha.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, reviews, and more tourist information, refer to the Da Nang trip maker .

Amsterdam, Holland to Da Nang is an approximately 16-hour flight. You can also do a combination of train and flight. You'll lose 6 hours traveling from Amsterdam to Da Nang due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Amsterdam in September, expect Da Nang to be warmer, temps between 38°C and 29°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Mon) so you can travel to Ho Chi Minh City.
