Typically, you should spend 2-3 days traveling to Da Nang city. But you only have 1 day to stay here and transfer to Hoi An or Ha Noi. I would like to introduce you someplace for your trip. Choosing some sites and making your schedule
Son Tra Peninsula (Monkey Moutain) ( it takes about 3 hours)
- The best time to visit Son Tra Peninsula is between March and September when the nature and atmosphere are the most wonderful to enjoy
- When exploring Son Tra, a taxi may cost much more expensive than a motorbike so if you want to save money, a motorcycle ride is highly recommended
- Taking sunscreen and wearing shoes rather than flip-flops are recommended since you might have to ‘fight’ some sand and rocks to take photos of the magnificent views.
- Around Son Tra Peninsula, the signal is not very good, so it’s better if you have a map of the area, plan the trip ahead or go with a local tour guide
Linh Ung Pagoda Son Tra Peninsula
The most prominent feature of Linh Ung Pagoda is the Lady Buddha statue, which is the tallest one in Vietnam with a height of 67 meters, equivalent to that of a 30-floor building.

My Khe beach ( 2 hours in the Morning and 3 hours in the afternoon)
The best time to visit here is Early Morning Or Late Afternoon. It is really regrettable if you do not spend a little time swimming at the most beautiful beach on this planet.
The lack of large waves, warm water year-round, and an average 60-meter wide beach area, My Khe Beach is an ideal and safe place for both adults and children to swim at any time of year. My Khe also offers magnificent sunrise scenery so try to stay close to the beach to enjoy the stunning view right from your room.
The beach offers freshwater bathing for a fee of 3.000-5.000 VND (a quarter of USD). You could use fresh water from the hotel where you are staying, that is free at all.
Museum of Cham Sculpture (1.5 hours)
The Most Extensive Collection of Cham Art Worldwide…
The Cham Museum was built in Cham architectural style, using thin lines that are simple and gentle. The museum displays an intensive and diverse collection of Champa sculptures dating from the 7th to the 15th centuries when a matriarchal society prevailed.
The museum was established at the end of the 19th century by the Ecole Francaise d’Extreme Orient with a collection of artifacts gathered in central Vietnam, from Quang Binh to Binh Dinh. They were then displayed at Le Jardin de Tourane on a small hill by the Han River. This is the site of the present museum.
The building was designed by two French architects, Delaval and Auclair, in imitation of the most commonly used aspects of Champa towers and temples.
At present, the museum displays approximately 300 sandstone and terra-cotta sculptures, among which some are made from terracotta. Most of the artifacts are masterpieces of Champa art and some are considered to be equal to works anywhere in the world. The sculptures were collected from Cham temples and towers throughout Central Vietnam, more specifically the area stretching from Quang Binh to Binh Thuan.

Da Nang Cathedral ( it takes about 15 minutes)
Danang Cathedral is the cathedral of the Da Nang Diocese in central Vietnam. This is the only church built in Danang city in the French colonial period.
The imposing, candy-pink cathedral is known locally by the slightly less imposing name ‘Rooster’ (Con Ga) Church. The name comes from the rooster that sits atop the impressive steeple.
According to an explanation from the priest, the rooster on the roof of the church is not in fact the symbol of France but is a symbol associated with St Peter’s story in the Gospel about repentance and awakening.
