Unfortunately, today almost nothing from those ancient times were not preserved. Da Nang today is one of the most modern cities in Vietnam, and there is not even preserved monuments of relatively recent history, except during the war with the United States. In General, the history of da Nang is quite closely connected with the Europeans. So, the first Europeans (Portuguese) in Vietnam landed in 1535. In 1858, da Nang became the French concession. During the Vietnam war near da Nang was a major U.S. military base.

Today, da Nang is not yet too spoiled by the attention of European tourists, because it is a typical industrial city, without any special attractions and entertainment. To be honest, to meet a European tourist on the streets of da Nang at all rare. However, Forbes beaches of da Nang have been named among the most attractive in the world. The beaches of da Nang are gorgeous, deserted and annually attract large numbers of tourists, most of them residents of Vietnam and neighboring country in Southeast Asia. In General, for the Vietnamese this is one of the favorite places.

While in the da Nang attractions except for the Cham Museum, a huge statue of the Buddha and the magnificent modern bridges are almost there, near Danang are the mountain of the Ban, the Hai van pass, the ruins of Mason, national Park Batima, marble mountain, and more than the popular tourist town of Hoi an and the ancient capital of hue. Here you can also go to Laos. In da Nang, convenient place to stay to visit all these places.

In General, the day da Nang is a pretty boring city. But at night the city is transformed, the whole rastsvetay colored lights; cafes and restaurants open in places where the day and they did not exist; appear out of nowhere tourists (even Europeans). The evening is clearly more fun and you can even find night clubs. But for now, the main visitors of such establishments are not European tourists.

The city's infrastructure now offers everything necessary for quality recreation, and while all developing very dynamically. In the city one of the best and broadest roads in the country and almost no traffic. Hotels are a huge number, and constantly grow new. Everything is changing, and the current vacant lots along the beach (yet there are vacant lots still there) next year will be built up with hotels or restaurants. The prospect of the city adds that it is a major transport hub: there is only a recently upgraded international airport, railway station, sea port, bus station.

From the airport to the hotel in da Nang 5 $ negotiable or over the counter less.
From da Nang to Hoi an from 20 dollow. But there is better on the counter not to go, and the right to negotiate. Taxi drivers on the street in da Nang's full duty, come and traded.

Toli is not able to read or something, for 200 000 which is less than 10 dollars then it got. Now prices have risen a little, but I think in the range of $ 15 meet. ...
