Danang is a great place to visit and ideally located to form part of your Vietnam tours itinerary. Situated as it is, on the East coast of the country, midway between the capital, Hanoi and the largest Ho Chi Minh city, it really couldn’t be better placed. The town is pleasant enough but it is probably its location close to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Hué and Hoi An that make it so popular. That is not to say that the town has little to offer on its own merits. The city is one of the most friendly backpacker towns in the country. My Khe Beach is the largest, most popular and certainly the most well known of all the beaches here.
