We’ve been Da Nang last year. It was wonderful trip. Unfortunately, it was not sunny, but we could through Hai Van pass, also Marble moutain. Nex time, i will visit Ba Na hills. We can not deny that there are many good seafood-restaurants along My Khe beach and in center. We also tried many kinds of local food in Da Nang and Hoi An. So unforgetable when our family traveled by motorbike around Da Nang and enjoy local food :))

Yes, if you come to Da Nang in summer, you should go to Ba Na hills. What fantastic! We love walking along Bach Dang street at night. Da Nang is beautiful with nice bridges.
