Vietnam > Da Nang
Third largest city in Vietnam, Da Nang is surprisingly modern, vibrant, scenic and lively, despite its Vietnam War trauma. The former border between North and South is just north of Da Nang.
Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) and Ha Noi are opposites in characters and ambiences, but Da Nang is sort of in the middle (even by road, Da Nang is virtually midway between HCMC and Ha Noi). It is shaping up to become a resort city, with beautiful beaches, scenic rivers, rural ambience, and UNESCO World Heritage Sites around it.
Indeed a very pleasant place to be at, my favourite Vietnamese city no doubt.

HUE, HOI AN and MY SON
Using Da Nang as a base, one can do site trips to three UNESCO World Heritage Sites, namely:
> The Imperial City of Hue (please click HERE).
> Old Hoi An and My Son Temple Ruins (please click HERE).
