Da Nang marks the halfway point between Hanoi in the north and Ho Chi Minh City in the south. It’s the 4th largest city in Vietnam. Apart from some shopping highlights and historical sights, the main reason for most travelers staying here is its proximity to the well-known My Khe Beach, Lang Co Beach, Hoi An and My Son. Indeed, Da Nang’s coastline stretches for 30 km and is renowned for its calm, cool waters.

    Lang Co Beach is lined with palm trees while the water of the nearby ocean is crystal-clear and enticing, lapping onto white sands. It's a peninsula with a sparkling lagoon on one side and the beach on the other. The area is fairly under-developed, although recent years have seen many new hotels opening. My Khe Beach is more developed since it was a popular spot for American soldiers seeking R&R during the Vietnam-US War. There are plenty of water sports here, including fishing, water-skiing, diving, and yachting. It can get crowded over weekends and vacations.
