  • We enjoyed the ride with the scooter on the monkey mountain with beautiful viewpoint over Da Nang. The road is clearly marked and in good condition. Partially it is somewhat steep, so that scooter liked to carry only one person, second person must go only some meters :-)! We have unfortunately seen no monkeys.

Where to stay in Da Nang

Da Nang contains surprisingly abundant hotel options, despite its relatively low-key tourism. The rainiest season lasts from September to December, while the drier spring sees more travelers; still, you generally don't need to book a room very far in advance. A broad range of hostels for backpackers on budgets clusters near the beach and on the west side of the Han River. Spectacular resorts line the oceanfront, many offering private beach access, spa packages, water sports, and diving.
