If you’re looking for a Vietnam trip that delivers on both natural and cultural sights, look no further than the country’s laidback coastal city of Da Nang. It’s home to Marble Mountains, a group of karst towers dotted with trails and a maze of caves, plus a clutch of stunning temples. It’s also close to Cat Tien National Park, a teeming biosphere reserve of lowland forest and botanical gardens where endangered creatures are rescued and rehabilitated in sanctuaries and zoos.
Whether you want to spend your days lazing on sugary beaches, exploring the UNESCO-listed heritage centre of Hoi An or shopping in the bustling markets of HCMC, Da Nang has it all. But it’s well worth making time for its otherworldly landscape, too – the Trang An Scenic Landscape Complex was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2014, thanks to its spectacular limestone karsts and emerald rice paddies. The best way to enjoy it is on a slow boat ride along the Ngo Dong River, admiring the otherworldly views as you drift downstream.
It’s also a great place to try locally produced alcoholic beverages, like ruou thuoc, a medicinal spirit distilled with animal bile, or rice wine tuoc. But remember to drink responsibly and only in moderation, as alcohol prices are much cheaper than you’ll find in the West. For budgeting purposes, you can expect to pay around $20 per day for water, beer and local alcoholic drinks. 베트남 황제코스의 특징과 투어 패키지 가격
