Again, Da Nang in Vietnam !!

So here I am reviewing with new text and old photos, but new to the blog, on my memorable trips to  Da Nang, Vietnam. I was there several times, amazing trips and good cheers, good friends, by air and by car on the road warrior ride I love. I have written before on Da Nang but here is a bit more, Hope you enjoy the post as I

Da Nang city has been a hub of foreign culture for hundreds of years. The French Imparted their rich and colonial architecture, whereas modern Chinese and Korean investment has generated a plethora of delicious food options. As for the infrastructure, experts from Singapore have been called on to turn Da Nang into a ‘garden city’ by 2030.

There are severail nice hôtels , casinos, and the rotating bridge as well as the famous dragon bridge that spurs fire at night Fridays and Saturdays. A very nice picture taking spot by all visitors.

There are several beaches and just drove by them with the exception of My Khe which my hotel was across !  The more popular ones, such as My Khe and Non Nuoc, are relatively close to the city center. My Khe beach is a 32-mile stretch of white sand beach that is approximately 6 km east of Da Nang. The beach is in Phước Mỹ district which is the central area for tourists.  The southern beaches are the most popular ones in Da Nang. They are located by the road going from Son Tra Peninsula all the way to Hoi An. This big stretch of sand has been divided into few beaches: Pham Van DongMy Khe, Bac My Anh and Non Nuoc. To explore the northern beaches of Da Nang you need a scooter. Lang Van Beach, Xuan Thieu Beach and Thanh Binh Beach are all located close to the Hai Van Mountain and Hai Van Pass. They are less popular with locals and visitors and therefore ideal for water sports and some relaxing time.

There are several nice pagodas , the best known is the Linh Ung pagoda on Son Tra peninsula is possibly the most famous as it hosts the highest Guanyin Statue in Vietnam. Standing on My Khe beach, you can see the giant white statue overlooking the Pacific ocean. It is considered as a symbol of Da Nang city. However, did not see this one. There are others such as Hoa Phuoc Pagoda, a shrine to worship Shakyamuni Buddha, Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, is a beautiful temple with nuns who practice and take care to beautify the temple, so it is very clean and tidy. This shows the achievements of the cultivation and care of the nuns and nuns here. The one I saw was the Bao Minh Pagoda Chùa Bảo Minh, The temple is located on Pham Hung street, looks very dignified and quiet The design of the temple is very unique and ancient, bringing a sense of peace when coming to the temple.
