The coastline around Danang offers some of the best beaches in Vietnam, with powdery white sand and inviting azure seas. Whilst it is possible to simply sit back and relax in the sunshine, the proximity to the historic towns of Hue and Hoi An, lush green countryside and the stunning Bach Ma National Park certainly increase the allure of this area.
Whilst the city of Danang itself does not offer a huge amount for tourists, the hotels dotted along the coast are some of the finest in the country, from boutique gems to exquisite luxury resorts. Most of the hotels are within driving distance of either Hue or Hoi An, which are two of Vietnam's most charming historical towns. This makes the area a great stop for those who want to combine culture with their beach time.
Inland, there is gorgeous countryside, with lush green hills and local villages. It is possible to explore the area in a vintage jeep, taking in panoramic views and feeling the wind in your hair as you head along the winding roads. Bach Ma National Park also sits between Danang and Hue, offering picturesque jungle, lakes and waterfalls, with a number of trekking paths.
