FAQs: Things to do in Da Nang

Yes. Da Nang is the largest and most well-known city in Central Vietnam. The area is famous for the incredible Da Nang beaches, scenic mountain landscapes, and rich cultural heritage. Danang is a gateway to both ancient towns and contemporary attractions, blending modern urban Vietnamese culture with traditionalism in a way few other cities do.

Some parts of Da Nang are great for walking, including the area around the city center and the riverfront promenade. Sites like the Dragon Bridge and My Khe Beach are especially good for exploring on foot.

Unfortunately, most of the city further away from the center lacks proper sidewalks and pedestrian paths, and the spread-out nature of the city makes it difficult to walk around.

That being said, all of Danang is safe to walk around at night in comparison to most large cities around the world. Of course, you should still be smart about safety.
