Danang is a beautiful coastal city in Central Vietnam, and only a 40-minute drive from Hoi An. It’s the perfect holiday spot to go crazy on your Instagram and make your followers jealous. Here are our favorite places in the city to snap some pictures.

Recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage site, the My Son Sanctuary is a large cluster of abandoned Hindu temples, constructed between the 4th and the 14th centuries A.D. by the Champa civilization. They are referred to as the Angkor Wat of Vietnam. The ruins are both enchanting and photogenic, as they are overgrown with weeds and surrounded by mountains.

2. Ba Na Hills SunWorld

Ba Na Hills is a French hill station resort located on a mountain. You will find structures that resemble French castles, as well as gorgeous courtyards, cobblestone streets, giant Buddha statues, underground wine cellars, Asia’s longest cable car ride, beautiful nature, and sweeping views.

3. Linh Ung Pagoda

Buddhist Temple

A stunning, white 220-foot (67-meter) tall Lady Buddha stands and looks out of Danang Bay. Legend says that she provides protection to fishermen who venture into rough seas by providing them with a safe passage back home. The statue can be seen from afar.

4. The Marble Mountains

5. Hai Van Pass

6. My Khe Beach

Measuring at 2,185 feet (666 meters) in length, the Dragon Bridge is constructed like a—well, dragon—and it’s the longest bridge in Vietnam. Every weekend, the bridge offers a spectacular display of lights, fire, and water.

8. Cham Islands

If My Khe Beach is a little too crowded for you, head to the Cham Islands, a cluster of eight islands off the coast of Hoi An that make for a wonderful diving getaway. Spice up your Instagram with beautiful shots of underwater coral and nudibranchs.

9. Rafew Café

A quaint and beautifully decorated place, Rafew Café is quiet and offers an air-conditioned escape from the heat of the Danang sun. Enjoy a few cold drinks, get work done, or snap some pictures at every cute corner.
