What do you do when you want to have an exciting yet relaxed holiday? Visit Da Nang in Vietnam! Travelers often overlook Da Nang, which is a shame as it has a lot to offer.
We recently packed our beach-ware and consciously left the iPad and laptops back home. It was time to soak in the sun, sip on some fresh coconuts and discover the amazing flavors of Vietnam. With no plans other than roaming the streets and a couple of must-see on our list, we reached Da Nang, only to be completely blown away by its beauty.

If you only have time to explore one country in Southeast Asia, visit VIETNAM!
Let’s admit it, when it comes to travel, Vietnam gets a bit of a bad rep.
