Da Nang

One of the most ancient cities in Vietnam, Danang was the centre of the Cham Dynasty from the 2nd century and the surrounding area holds an astonishingly dense collection of UNESCO World Heritage sights. Inland lies My Son, once the most important temple complex in the Cham Kingdom, is now an array of haunting, overgrown ruins, which pre-date its grander counterparts at Angkor in Siem Reap. The beaches of Danang were where the French originally landed and decades later the US Marines. Now the beautiful beach is home to a number of international hotels and resorts.

Nearby Hoi An, which once played an important role in the maritime trade of Southeast Asia now sits on the Thu Bon River. The highly traditional and laid back town with wood-built merchant houses and jaunty Chinese Assembly Halls make this well-preserved city hugely popular for tourists. A concerted effort to retain the city’s old-worn charm has paid off and it is a very picturesque and peaceful place to visit.
