Da Nang in less than 24 Hours

After wrapping up my trip in Hanoi, it’s time to explore Central Vietnam!  There are a lot of interesting places in this part of Vietnam, I only get to explore Da Nang and Hoi An unfortunately. First stop was Da Nang, which is somewhat like a pit stop before Hoi An. Da Nang is the third largest city in Vietnam in terms of population. It is a coastal city and known for its sandy beaches. Unlike Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh, Da Nang is pretty laid-back and friendly place. If you have a day to spare, you must check out this city and its sights!
