27 Things To Do In Da Nang From Tourist Experiences To Local-Favored Spots

Things to do in Da Nang for both locals and tourists


Da Nang is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Vietnam, and for good reason. Known as the most liveable city in the country, its beautiful nature scenery, charming beaches, friendly people, and delicious foods have enthralled many a visitor.

That said, Da Nang is a big city with many things to do, and famous places such as Ba Na Hills or My Khe Beach are but the surface of what the city has to offer.  So we’ve taken it upon ourselves to compose an ultimate guide that covers everything you can do in Da Nang.

This article will be updated and expanded regularly to cover all the things to do, food to eat, and more in Da Nang, so stay tuned.

Table of Contents


1. Natural attractions


1.1. My Khe Beach – crystal clear water and white sand

Your Da Nang experience would not be complete without taking a swim at its famed My Khe Beach. Its sparkling white sand and crystal clear water rightfully earned it the reputation as one of the most beautiful beaches in Vietnam.

The beach faces directly eastward, so set your alarm clock early to catch the sunrise. Dawn is also the best time to go kayaking if that’s on your agenda, as the weather won’t be too hot and there won’t be too many people. And did I mention the beautiful sunrise?

Many locals have also set up shops here to provide all sorts of services, from beach chairs and drinks to lockers for you to put your personal items before going into the water, and tapwater showers to rinse yourself after.


1.2. Son Tra Peninsula

Encompassing the My Khe Beach is the Son Tra Peninsula, frequented by locals and tourists alike thanks to the magnificent views and fresh air it offers. Simply drive along the beach, and soon enough you’ll find a wide, well-built road leading up to the peninsula, with many spots to look down at both the city and the ocean below.


There are many places to take pictures with beautiful views.

You’re also likely to encounter packs of pigtailed macaque – an endangered primate species that calls the mountain home – along the way. And yes, you might be tempted to lure these fascinating creatures over with snacks for a closer look and perhaps some pictures, but please, do not feed them.


Don’t feed the monkeys. Seriously, don’t.
Image credit: @rosie_ngochang

Tourists feeding these macaques is a major concern for Da Nang authorities, as it creates a bad habit for these wild animals, making them dependent on humans for their food source. There have also been many cases where they jump onto visitors’ cars and bikes to beg for food, causing accidents.


1.3. Green Lake – with both city and ocean views



Image credit: @trunganh_2309

Easily found at the foot of the Sơn Trà Peninsula is the Green Lake, aptly named for its clear emerald water.

As you drive up the peninsula, keep an eye out for dirt paths on the roadside that’ll lead you to an elevated patch of land – a favorite sightseeing and picnic spot for locals. From here, you can look down to see the entirety of the lake, the ocean beyond that, and the city further still.

1.4. Tiên Sa Lighthouse – mountaintop lighthouse with archaic designs



Image credit: @998.tuha

Also located on the Sơn Trà Peninsula is the Tiên Sa Lighthouse, also known as the Sơn Trà Lighthouse. Built by the French over a century ago, the lighthouse is one of the oldest in Vietnam and is still functioning to this day. Its colonial-era designs, brilliant white-and-yellow walls, and ocean views make it a sought-after photo spot in Đà Nẵng.


Image credit: @poulpixel

As the lighthouse is quite far up the mountain, we recommend driving up here on a motorbike. The road leading up here is well-built and smooth despite a few steep slopes, so it’s not too hard to navigate. 

Remember to use a manual transmission bike, however, as there will be security posts that turn scooters and automatic transmission motorcycles away for safety reasons.

Check out our article on other photogenic lighthouses in Vietnam.

Entrance fee: VND20,000 (~USD0.86)


1.5. Nam Ô Village – with charming moss-covered rocks



Image credit: @ngoc_tu_quynh

17km from Đà Nẵng’s center is the Nam Ô Village, a charming coastal village that retains a pristine beauty thanks to its secluded location away from the busy city center.

The village is most known for a reef of moss-covered rocks that look particularly stunning in pictures. You might want to drop by early at dawn, as this is when the tide recedes, baring the reef in all its glory.


Image credit: @ngocdan.ht95

The moss grows most verdantly from January to February, so time your visit around then for the most beautiful views and photo opportunities.

2. Spiritual attractions


2.1 Linh Ung Pagoda – with Vietnam’s tallest Guanyin statue



Image credit: Denys Pasishnyi

Located on the Son Tra Peninsula and therefore offering the same pretty ocean views, the Linh Ung Pagoda is one of the most popular spiritual attractions of Da Nang, and of Vietnam as a whole.


Image credit: @chaeyean.ing

The venue is marked by a giant statue of the Buddhist deity Guanyin that can be seen from miles away. Standing at 67 meters, this is the tallest statue of the deity in Vietnam and one of the iconic landmarks of Da Nang.


Image credit:
@lecacphuonguyen

Many locals believe the pagoda suppresses frequent storms and brings prosperity to the city, and so they flock here regularly to offer prayers. Of course, you can visit simply to take a stroll in the pagoda’s quaint garden and enjoy the views. Do note that it’s a common etiquette to dress somewhat formally as you visit temples and pagodas in Vietnam. While not always required, attires such as trousers, long skirts, and sleeved shirts are encouraged.

2.2 Marble Mountains – limestone mountains with Buddhist altars

6km from the My Khe Beach lies the Marble Mountains, also known locally as Ngũ Hành Sơn, or the Five Element Mountains. This is a cluster of several limestone mountains with Buddhist statues and altars built in their many caves and tunnels, making them another place of worship in Da Nang.


There are many caves with Buddhist altars in the mountains.
Image credit: @though_i_thought_it

There are stairs for you to climb up the mountains and enjoy the views. Or you can opt to take a lift for VND40,000 (~USD1.71) to go straight to the top.

Entrance fee: Free Entry | VND40,000 (~USD1.71) to use the lift


3. Theme parks


3.1. Ba Na Hills – with the iconic Golden Bridge



Image credit: @fabrizio.speranza095

The Golden Bridge of Ba Na Hills, which appears as if held by two giant stone hands protruding from a mountain, is an internationally known symbol of Da Nang. It would be remiss of us not to mention this mountaintop theme park as one of the destinations you must visit.


Image credit: @jomjoysstory

 Not that the bridge is the only thing of note here. It leads to the heart of Ba Na Hills: a recreation of a French medieval village, complete with colorful gardens, restaurants, and cafes.

3.2. Asia Park – thrilling rides right inside Da Nang



Image credit: @semi_1101

While the Ba Na Hills require an hour’s drive to get to from Da Nang, the Asia Park is another popular theme park right inside the city that you can check out.


Image credit: Công Viên Châu Á Đà Nẵng

Having just reopened after a 2-year hiatus due to Covid-19, the park offers a plethora of entertainment activities, from a giant ferris wheel that allows panoramic views of Da Nang, to thrilling rides such as rollercoasters and drop towers. There are also dance and music performances on special occasions.


Image credit: @vilovely25

One section of the park is a food court with shops offering various Vietnamese dishes and snacks to savor.

3.3. Núi Thần Tài Hot Spring Park – swim in hot springs and enjoy a sauna



Image credit:
@smallmokey

30km from Đà Nẵng’s center is Núi Thần Tài Hot Spring Park, favored by the city’s residents for a quick weekend getaway. As you can guess from the name, this is a water park built around a cluster of natural hot springs. 

Come here to take a swim in the pleasantly warm water, then get a sauna session to relax your muscles and improve blood circulation.


Image credit: @nxptrinh

For those who want some more excitement, the water park here comes equipped with waterslides and a tsunami pool capable of generating artificial waves for fun times.

There’s also a dinosaur park with dinosaur models that can perform simple movements – great for families with kids.


Image credit: Công Viên Suối Khoáng Nóng Núi Thần Tài

You can access all of these for an entrance fee of VND400,000 (~USD16.15) per adult, and VND200,000 (~USD8.07) per kid (under 1.4 meters in height). 

Other services including herbal baths and mud baths come with extra charges from VND150,000 (~USD6.06) to VND400,000 (~USD16.15).

3.4. Hòa Phú Thành Ecotourism Zone – slide down a waterfall



Image credit: Hòa Phú Thành Tourist-Trượt thác Đà Nẵng

Aside from Núi Thần Tài, Hòa Phú Thành is another ecotourism zone just outside Đà Nẵng that you can spend a day visiting. The place is nestled amidst nature, which, with decorative structures around, makes for good picture backdrops. 

There are also swimming pools and natural streams that you can take a dip in – all of which are accessible for a base entrance fee of VND100,000 (~USD4.04).


Image credit: Hòa Phú Thành Tourist-Trượt thác Đà Nẵng

That said, we highly recommend paying an extra VND250,000 (~USD10.09) to try waterfall sliding, the signature activity here. Protected by helmets and life vests and supervised by guides, you’ll ride an inflatable boat down a 3km long stream with several waterfalls.


Image credit: Hòa Phú Thành Tourist-Trượt thác Đà Nẵng

The complex also provides accommodation and camping services for those who want to spend the night amidst nature. Nightly rates range from VND250,000 (~USD10.09) for a tent, to VND1,250,000 (~USD50.46) for a family cabin.

4. Nighttime activities


4.1. Watch the Dragon Bridge Show



Image credit: @geobraxmg

The Dragon Bridge is another landmark synonymous with Da Nang, and apart from being a popular check-in spot with river views, it’s also known for its weekly Dragon Bridge show.

Every weekend night, from Friday to Sunday, the dragon exhales fire and water from its mouth for 15 minutes starting from 9pm, drawing crowds of fascinated spectators.


Image credit: @prime_swj

Note: do try to stay a safe distance from the dragon’s head. You obviously don’t want to be too close to the fire, but even the streams of water can splash surprisingly far and drench your clothes if you’re caught off guard. Or, just do what this guy did and come prepared with a raincoat.


4.2. Cruise the Han River on a boat



Image credit: Vé Du Thuyền Sông Hàn giá rẻ

If you don’t want to fight your way through throngs of people to enjoy the Dragon Bridge show, pay VND150,000 (~USD6.38) at the city’s ferry dock to join a 1-hour boat tour. The tours are open to all every day, with boats departing at hourly intervals. The earliest trip starts at 6pm, and the latest boat departs at 9pm.

The boat takes you up and down Đà Nẵng’s Hàn River and allows you to enjoy views of its 3 bridges and of the city at night. Naturally, during weekends, the boat will stop next to the Dragon Bridge for you to see the fire-breathing show from a prime position away from the crowd.

Buy tickets at
Address: 34 Bạch Đằng Street, Hải Châu District, Đà Nẵng
Tours open from: 6pm-9pm, Daily
Ticket price: VND150,000 (~USD6.38)


4.3. Shop at the Son Tra Night Market



Image credit: @the.arale

Right under the dragon’s head is the Son Tra Night Market, where you can have a taste of Da Nang’s nightlife.

Aside from shopping for all sorts of items such as clothing, souvenirs, phone cases, and other trinkets, you can also participate in a plethora of activities such as carnival games or getting temporary tattoos.

The market is also not a bad place to have dinner. Grilled meat and seafood are displayed in abundance here, and if you’ve already eaten, help yourself to snacks such as beef jerky or ice cream.

Address: Mai Hac De Street, Son Tra District, Da Nang
Opening hours: 5pm-12am, Daily


4.4. Helio Night Market – barbecue, music performances, and carnival games



Image credit: Helio Night Market

Right in front of the Asia Park is the Helio Night Market. Unlike the more traditional night market near the Dragon Bridge where vendors gather to sell goods, this is more of a hangout spot for local youths.


Food and drinks are readily available.
Image credit: Helio Night Market

The expansive venue has a food court with sizzling barbecue, sweet desserts, beer, and soft drinks readily available. Browse and buy whatever you fancy, then grab a seat around the main stage to enjoy your food over regular live music performances.


Check in at the many decorative structures here.
Image credit: Helio Night Market

Aside from that, participate in carnival games such as balloon darts to win stuffed animals and other souvenirs. The many decorative structures around, namely staged buildings resembling ancient houses, make for good picture backdrops as well.

Address: Number 1, 2/9 Street, Hải Châu District, Đà Nẵng
Opening hours: 4pm-10.30pm, Daily

5. Foods to eat


5.1. Mỳ Quảng – signature noodles named after the province



Image credit: @hmy9x

Mỳ Quảng – Quảng-style noodles – is named after the province Quảng Nam, which Da Nang used to be a part of. That the dish is named after the province itself is a testament to how popular it is.

At its core, mỳ Quảng is flattened noodles served with meat and veggies in a moderate amount of sauce. The meat used can be the regular pork or chicken, or less common flavors such as frog meat. The dish can also be eaten with crushed peanuts and bánh đa – a type of flattened, crunchy flour cake.

Try this dish at:

Mỳ Quảng Dung
Address: 121 Do Ba Street, Ngu Hanh Son District, Da Nang
Opening hours: 5.30am-2pm, Daily


5.2. Bánh Xèo Nem Lụi – crunchy pancakes with pork sticks



Image credit: @thu.anna89

The term bánh xèo nem lụi actually refers to two different dishes. Bánh xèo is a kind of Vietnamese pancake with a crunchy flour layer wrapped over shrimp, meat, and bean sprouts. Nem lụi is pork minced and squeezed into sticks, then grilled on charcoal.


Bánh xèo and nem lụi are best enjoyed together.
Image credit: Love Kim

You can, of course, opt to have bánh xèo or nem lụi separately, but the two are most often served together as they bring out each other’s flavors. Use a piece of rice paper to roll both together with lots of herbs, then dip the roll into a thick sauce made of meat and sesame for a tasty bite that still feels fresh and not too meaty.

Try this dish at:

Kim Anh Eatery
Address: 63 Huynh Thuc Khang Street, Hai Chau District, Da Nang
Opening hours: Mon-Sat 6.30am-10pm | Closed on Sunday
Contact: 0236 3582 486


5.3. Bánh tráng cuốn thịt heo – pork rolled in rice paper



Image credit: @pickypig_nyc

Bánh tráng cuốn thịt heo is another Đà Nẵng specialty whose name pretty much sums up exactly what it is. Bánh tráng are thin sheets of rice paper. You use one to cuốn – or roll – veggies with thịt heo, or pork, then dip the whole thing in a thick, pungent fish sauce called mắm nêm.

Most often, the pork used in the dish is boiled belly meat, which has layers of fat that makes it juicy. At the same time, the greasiness is tempered by the veggies, and the sauce rounds up the taste. Sometimes, other ingredients such as peanuts or prawns are also added for additional flavors.

Try this dish at:

Bánh tráng cuốn thịt heo Đại Lộc
Address: 124 Huỳnh Thúc Kháng Street, Hải Châu District, Đà Nẵng
Opening hours: 10am-10pm, Daily
Contact: 090 505 1897


5.4. Bánh canh – noodles with seafood



Image credit: @enouvo.space

Bánh canh is a type of Vietnamese noodles that comes in 2 variations. One is made from rice, characterized by its white color and smooth, soft texture. The other, made from tapioca, is more transparent and chewier. Most often, eateries that offer this dish will ask which version you prefer, so choose the one that suits your taste.

The noodles are served in a broth made from simmering beef or pork bones with condiments. Extra toppings, most commonly seafood such as shrimps, crab meat, or chả cá – fish minced and baked into cakes – are then added to create a satisfyingly filling dish that’s not too heavy.

Try this dish at:

Bánh Canh Ruộng
Address: 20 Hà Thị Thân Street, Sơn Trà District, Đà Nẵng
Opening hours: 11am-9pm, Daily


5.5. Cơm Gà Ngũ Vị



Image credit: Đặng Thị Mển

Cơm Gà Ngũ Vị offers cơm gà, or chicken rice – not exactly a Đà Nẵng specialty, but the food quality here keeps us coming back at least once a week.

But we have to get this straight out of the way: this is a very casual Vietnamese eatery. Don’t expect any spotless dining spaces or fancy services here. The floor can be slippery, the tables can be a little bit dusty. But don’t let that deter you from sampling the amazing dishes here.


Image credit: Yến Trần Thị Kim

Our favorite is the cơm gà chiên mắm (VND50,000, ~USD2.02), featuring chicken seeped thoroughly in a homemade sauce made from fish sauce, chilli, and other condiments, then fried to a mouth-watering crispiness and served over fried rice. 

Take a bite of the chicken to feel the sauce flooding your mouth with all the flavors, then add a spoonful of rice to balance out the taste.

Address: 142 Lê Đình Dương Street, Hải Châu District, Đà Nẵng
Opening hours: 10am-2am, Daily
Contact: 097 905 4832


5.6. Phở Cồ Long – northern-style phở



Image credit: Hằng Minh

Phở is probably the most internationally well-known Vietnamese dish. It is rice noodles served in a broth made from simmering beef bones with cinnamon, star anise, fish sauce, and other spices, but different regions of Vietnam offer very different tastes of phở.

For northern-style phở, Phở Cồ Long, a simple eatery just a short distance from the Dragon Bridge, is one of the most authentic options out of all the phở places we’ve tried in Đà Nẵng.


Image credit: quynh pham

For VND35,000 (~USD1.41), you get a bowl of phở with two types of beef to choose from. There’s rare beef, where the beef is cut into thin slices and added to the bowl raw, and as the boiling broth is poured in, the beef is cooked to a medium rare level. 

Then there’s well-done beef, where the beef is thoroughly cooked before going into your phở. Of course, feel free to get a mix of both if you like.

Address: 48 Lê Đình Dương Street, Hải Châu District, Đà Nẵng
Opening hours: 6am-11pm, Daily
Contact: 098 527 7855


5.7. Tonkin Bún Chả – authentic Hanoi bún chả



Image credit: Tonkin Bún Chả

Next to phở, bún chả – grilled pork served in fish sauce and eaten with rice vermicelli – is another signature dish of Vietnam. More specifically, it’s a signature of Hanoi, my hometown. Naturally, after I moved to Đà Nẵng, I spent years trying many bún chả shops to find one that offers the authentic Hanoi taste I grew up loving. The fruit of my labor? Tonkin Bún Chả.


Image credit: Tonkin Bún Chả

This comfortable, clean shop with low bamboo seats and tables offers the two types of meat typically found in bún chả: meatballs and sliced pork belly, which come with a juicy layer of fat. They are well-marinated and grilled on charcoal, then served in a sauce made from fish sauce, lime, and a bit of sugar. 

You’ll get a dish of rice vermicelli and fresh herbs on the side. Dip them all into the sauce and take a bite for some authentic Hanoi flavor.

A standard serving here is VND45,000 (~USD1.82), about 30% more than what you’d pay for something similar in Hanoi. But it’s a price I’m more than willing to pay for a taste of home.

Address: 259 Nguyễn Công Trứ Street, Sơn Trà District, Đà Nẵng
Opening hours: 6am-11pm, Daily
Contact: Tonkin Bún Chả Facebook page | 0782 111 233


6. Cafes, desserts joints, and hang out spots


6.1. Sơn Trà Marina – a mini Santorini in Đà Nẵng



Image credit: @babymeo0903

Opposite the aforementioned Green Lake is Sơn Trà Marina, a new café opened in 2022 that’s a trending check-in spot. The café sports stone-paved floors and several spotless white-and-blue square building that reminds us of Santorini. Add a stunning ocean view on top of that, and you can see why so many people flock here to bring home some awesome shots.


Image credit: @anphan.1903

The menu is expansive, with both food and drink options. Food ranges from desserts such as ice cream cones (VND30,000, ~USD1.28) to main courses such as smoked duck breast with orange sauce (VND309,000, ~USD13.13) and T-bone steak (VND1,469,000, ~USD62.44).


Image credit: @sontra.marina

Or, if you’ve already eaten, sit back and relax with a cup of whipped cream coffee (VND70,000, ~USD2.98) or a Pina Colada (VND100,000, ~USD4.25).

GPS coordinates: 16°05’48.7″N 108°16’03.8″E
Opening hours: 7am-10pm, Daily
Contact: 087 626 3646 | Sơn Trà Marina Facebook


6.2. Nam House Café – Vintage café with the must-try egg coffee



Image credit: NAM house

For those looking for a more traditional Vietnamese coffee experience, we recommend checking out Nam House Café.


Image credit: NAM house

The two-story space is vintage through and through, with worn-looking brick walls and intentionally dimmed lights creating a laid-back vibe. Low wooden stools and tables and old-school items such as old cassette tapes, rotary phones, and oil lamps make the café look like a 1970s Vietnamese home.


Image credit: NAM house

Don’t miss out on the signature egg coffee (VND27,000, ~USD1.15), featuring coffee served with a layer of cream made by whipping egg yolks with sugar. The recipe was invented in Hanoi during the 20th century and went on to become a must-try specialty of the capital city, and Nam House is one of the few places in Đà Nẵng we’ve found that offer a similar taste.

Read our article on more cafes to check out in Da Nang.

Address: Alley 15 Lê Hồng Phong Street, Hải Châu District, Đà Nẵng
Opening hours: 7am-10pm, Daily
Contact: 036 686 5996 | Nam House Café Facebook


6.3. Trình Café – a massive garden full of green



Trình Café
is an café well-known among Đà Nẵng locals, but not tourists, due to its relatively hidden location in a spacious but otherwise unassuming alley. But if you do manage to find it, you’ll likely be in awe right at the first glance, as the place is a massive garden with pebbled roads to traverse.

Many tall, ancient-looking trees provide shades for you to sit in one of the low wooden stools right in the garden, where you can take in the fresh, earthy scent of plants surrounding a giant fish pond. Or if you want better shelter, grab a seat in one of the roofed buildings around, designed to look like old-school Vietnamese houses with rustic furniture.


Image credit:
Trình Cà Phê

In terms of drinks, Trình Café has many specialties featuring avocado. The avocado coffee (VND38,000, ~USD1.63), which is exactly what its name reflects, is highly recommended.

Address: 4 Alley 34, Nguyen Huu Tho Street, Hai Chau District, Da Nang
Opening hours: 6.30AM-10.30PM, Daily
Contact: Trinh Ca Phe’s Facebook page


6.4. L2B Coffee – River view café with cute plants


L2B Coffee is a humble building nestled right next to an outlet of Cộng Cà Phê – a massively popular café brand in Vietnam. But unlike the vibrancy of its neighbors, L2B exudes a cozy charm with raw brick walls and golden light coming from lanterns hanging from the ceiling. Perhaps the stark contrast makes the place all the more peaceful and homey.

On the second and third floors, you can find comfy sofas to relax on, or outdoor seating at balconies lined with cute cacti, succulents, and aloe vera. They look straight out to Đà Nẵng’s famous Hàn River as well, providing plenty of fresh air.

All the drinks here are made with care. We recommend the coconut coffee (VND45,000, ~USD1.82) – coconut milk blended with ice into ice cream and served with a cup of coffee on the side that you can pour in. You can tell the staff to blend the coffee in with the cream for a more balanced flavor.

Address: 92 Bạch Đằng Street, Hải Châu District, Đà Nẵng
Opening hours: 7.30am-11pm, Daily
Contact: L2B Coffee & Cake’s Facebook page | 079 301 4999


6.5. Trà Sữa Bông – popular local milk tea brand

For bubble tea lovers, Trà Sữa Bông is a local brand for a local taste. The many outlets available throughout the city mean you can easily find one as you explore the streets, or order delivery to wherever you are without burning a hole in your wallet.


Image credit: ơi Trời

The defining features of Bông’s drinks are their affordable prices and the sheer amount of toppings they come with. A standard serving of its oolong milk tea, for example, goes for a mere VND28,000 (~USD1.13), and is packed with pearls, a flan cake, glass jelly, and khúc bạch – a type of Vietnamese jelly made from milk.

Address: Multiple outlets. See full list of locations here
Opening hours: 7.30am-10pm, Daily
