Just far away from the Danang Beach Hotel 25 km toward the southeast, Hoi An ancient town is an exceptionally well-preserved example of a South-East Asian trading port dating from the 15th to the 19th century. Its buildings and its street plan reflect the influences, both indigenous and foreign, that have combined to produce this unique heritage site.
Since Hoi An is an Old Town, its places of interest are of full historically classical meaning and image. Hoi An symbol, the most popular remnant is the Japanese Covered Bridge (Chua Cau or Lai Vien Kieu), on Tran Phu Street. The bridge was constructed in the early 1600's by the Japanese community. Tourists should spend time on visiting Quan Cong Temple, Musium of Culture… Many ancient style - oriented architects come here to have a direct look into the ancient houses of the town, among which are Phung Hung House, just west of the Japanese Bridge, Quan Thang House, or Tan Ky House. The design of the houses show how local architecture incorporated Japanese and Chinese influences. Cantonese Assembly Hall (Quang Dong), has a calm courtyard with ornate statuary. You could take a peek at the half-hidden back yard and its kitschy pastel dragon statues. Hokien (Fujian) Meeting Hall (Phuc Kien) and Chinese All-Community Meeting Hall (Trieu Chau), are also spanning the block. If you are Buddhist, there are a lot of pagodas to visit. Ong Pagoda, Quan Am Phat Tu Minh Huong Pagoda, etc. are premium places to get in.
Hoi An is also known as a shopping paradise that attracts tourists
towards its wonderful souvenirs, handicrafts, antique pieces, silk
materials and art paintings, and so on.
It is easy to find transportation from Da Nang International Airport to
Hoi An town. As Hoi An is pretty small, most tourists usually wander on
foot or hire a bike to explore the town on their own.
Specially, Bana Hill is also equipped with the longest cable car in the world to set 4 world records, recognised by the Guinness World Records organisation for its length (5,771.61m), for its greatest difference in height between departure and destination (1,368.93m), for its longest non-stop cable length (11,585m), and for its heaviest cables weight (141.24 tonnes). The route has 86 cabins, takes only 17 minutes to reach the top of the mountain and is capable of carrying 1,500 visitors per hour.
Guests staying at Danang Beach Hotel could have a visit to Bana Hill Fantasy Park by tours or just catch a taxi to go there and come back during the day...The site is just 45 minutes drive or around 40km west of Danang.
Marble Mountains (Ngũ Hành Sơn; "Five elements mountains") is a cluster of five marble and limestone hills located in Ngu Hanh Son ward, south of Danang city in Central Vietnam. The five 'mountains' are named after the five elements: Kim (metal), Thủy (water), Mộc (wood), Hỏa (fire) and Thổ (earth).
All of the mountains have cave entrances and numerous tunnels, and it is possible to climb to the summit of one of the peaks. Several buddhist sanctuaries can also be found within the mountains, making this a famous tourist destination.The area is famous for stone sculpture making and stone-cutting crafts, just a short distance or 5 minute drive from the hotel.
Son Tra peninsula is 5km away from the center of Danang City to the North-East and is 693m high above sea level. Son Tra Mountain can be seen from every places of the city. It looks like a mushroom of which cap is Son Tra Mountain and stalk is a beautiful sandy beach that affords an ideal area for bathing, playing sports, fishing and swimming.
Quite pretty and with a good bit of naturalness, Son Tra peninsula is a good place for visitors to Danang.
Linh Ung pagoda faces to The Eastern sea, on the left is Cham Islands, on the right is Hai Van Mountain. Linh Ung-Bai But pagoda is considered as one of the biggest pagoda in Da Nang city in both of scale and architecture. This pagoda has a combination between modern style and traditional style. The main area has a large capacity and it is the most solemn place.
Especially, in Linh Ung-Bai But pagoda, there has Guan Yin statue that is considered as the highest statue in Vietnam (67 meters height approximately 30 stories). This statue put its back to the mountain, faces to the sea. Above the Guan Yin statue is Buddhahood statue with the height of 2 meters.
From here, you can contemplate the whole city, mountain and Son Tra
peninsula. In addition, from the distance, you will see Ngu Hanh Son
Mountain along with white sand-bank. The beautiful landscape creates a
unique impression that you cannot find in any other places.
The Museum’s first building was opened in 1919, but many Cham sculptures collected in Da Nang, Quang Nam and elsewhere were brought to the site over the preceding twenty years. The collection was begun by French archaelogists and experts from L’École Francaise d’Extrême Orient (EFEO). Some artefacts were sent to Paris and others to the Ha Noi and Sai Gon (now Ho Chi Minh City) museums, but many typical objects were left in Tourane (now Da Nang).
Cham Museum is located by Dragon Bridge (Cau Rong), at the intersection of Bach Dang-Tran Phu Street.
Being unique and without equal in Southeast Asia, its monuments are the most important constructions of the My Son civilization. The tower temples have a variety of architectural designs symbolizing the greatness and purity of Mount Meru, the mythical sacred mountain home of Hindu gods at the center of the universe, now symbolically reproduced on Earth in the mountainous homeland of the Cham people. They are constructed in fired brick with stone pillars and decorated with sandstone bas-reliefs depicting scenes from Hindu mythology. Their technological sophistication is evidence of Cham engineering skills while the elaborate iconography and symbolism of the tower-temples give insight into the content and evolution of Cham religious and political thought.
A number of French-style buildings lie along the south bank of the Perfume River. Among them are Quoc Hoc High School, the oldest high school in Vietnam, and Hai Ba Trung High School.
Phong Nha-Ke Bang is about 350km north of Danang.
