Da Nang Attractions

What to See in Da Nang

Da Nang’s west-coast location makes for beautiful sunsets, a holiday-like atmosphere and good, safe swimming from May to August. Da Nang is home to four museums – two of which are dedicated to last century’s military conflicts and one entirely to ‘Uncle Ho’ – a replica of Ho Chi Minh’s house.

The Cao Dai Temple and Da Nang Cathedral are religious-themed attractions worthy of a visit while the nearby Marble Mountains will fascinate visitors with their many limestone caves used as both hideouts and places of worship. Finally the Hai Van Pass – the highest in the country – is not to be missed.
