Han River

The name Da Nang will have a familiar ring to anyone acquainted with America’s military action in Vietnam, as it was home to one fifth of all US servicepeople, and a transit or R&R spot for most of the rest, making it one of the most occupied — and heavily defended — cities in South Vietnam. Eventually however it fell to the North Vietnamese in 1975 with hardly a bullet fired.

During the French colonial period, Da Nang was called Tourane — a name still used by some of the hotels in the city. The French also used it as a landing point during their war in Vietnam. When the French established a garrison on the nearby Son Tra peninsula (dubbed ‘Monkey Mountain’ by US troops) more soldiers died from disease building it than during the associated fighting. Today a small cemetery near Tien Sa Beach stands in their memory.

Some of the major tourist attractions in Danang are:

Nam O Beach: Placed at a distance of 17 kilometers northwest of Danang Vietnam, it offers environmental boat rides to places like Hoa Bac and Hoa Bang district.
