Photo Essay: Da Nang, Vietnam. December 5, 2014; My trip to Da Nang was really short and sweet. I decided to spend a night in Da Nang to enjoy doing nothing after spending 6 days racing through streets in Ho Chi Minh, Hanoi and spending a night on the boat in Halong Bay. Da Nang is located in the central of Vietnam, it is also pretty close to Hoi An. This city is rich in natural beauty.
