Da Nang is Vietnam’s third busiest airport and the key transportation hub and economic centre for central Vietnam. Once considered just a stepping stone to Lang Co and Hoi An for travelers, Da Nang these days is attracting scores of visitors in its own right. It’s a city going places, and it’s going quickly with one of the fastest growth rates in SE Asia.
Da Nang’s beaches are some of the finest in the world. The city is better equipped for shoppers than anywhere in central Vietnam, especially for Western goods, and its nightlife and international restaurants reveal a city with an eye to the future, a city increasingly expressing the new cosmopolitan Vietnam.
