Da Nang is one of the largest cities of Vietnam and fairly centrally located in the country. The history buffs may recognize Da Nang as the city where the Americans first came in during the Vietnam War. The city essentially has not much to suffer from the war but because it was actually one big military bas, while this still had a major impact on the development of the city. Nowadays, Da Nang is trying to erase the traces of the war and as a major economic city it does doing pretty well. Da Nang is not a city where you want to stay for a long time. There are some nice sights and great beaches but you encountered much nicer things in Vietnam.
