I got to spend just a little over 48 hours in beautiful Da Nang and loved every second of it. Da Nang is a coastal and resort town and it’s popular with local tourists. There’s heaps to see and do and I recommend to spend at least three full days in the city.
My man and I took the local bus from Hoi An to Da Nang and couldn’t wait to explore it! The minute we got to Da Nang we unpacked and went out for food. We decided to go straight to Quán Chay Giác Ngộ, a small vegan eatery, that had raving reviews on Happy Cow. The food was absolutely incredible!
It was such a beautiful day! We ended up spending the rest of the day exploring the city and just wandering around. The dragon bridge (Cầu Rồng) over the River Hàn is incredibly beautiful.
At night the bridge is lit up and each Saturday and Sunday at 9 PM the dragon spits water.
In the morning we woke up to delicious vegan breakfast. Our host needed to make a special trip to the shop to get all the ingredients and I absolutely loved it!
My man and I spent the rest of the day cruising around on a motorbike. We drove to the bus ticket office, cruised along the coast and explored the city.
In the evening we grabbed food at my favorite place, Quán Chay Giác Ngộ, and the rest of the night was spent hanging out and planning our next adventures.
We only had a handful of hours left as we needed to be at the bus station at roughly 5 PM. In the morning I packed, organized and looked into things to do in Hanoi. Before going to the bus stop we went to Che Lien, an amazing dessert spot that has two vegan options. At around 6:30 PM we were on our way to Hanoi and after a 14-hour bus journey all I could think about was this Vegan Banh Mi spot which we hit shortly after.
Visiting Da Nang?
If you are thinking of visiting Da Nang then I can only highly encourage you to go. I am usually not into resort towns and Da Nang was a nice surprise. There is so much to do and see in Danang and it’s such a beautiful city! It’s also worth noting that the vegan food I had here was absolutely incredible!
