Danang 9
While most tourists neglect Vietnam’s third-largest city in favor of nearby Hué and Hoi An, Danang has considerable charm in its own right. The economic powerhouse of central Vietnam, it combines the buzz of a bigger city with beautiful beaches and great restaurants. A lot of money has recently been poured into tree-lined boulevards, bridges and beachside resorts. Back in the heady days of the American War, Danang was referred to as the ‘Saigon of the North’. This held a note of both praise and condemnation: like its big southern sister, Danang was notable for its booming economy, fine restaurants, busy traffic and glittering shops. Entertaining the soldiers from the nearby American base was a profitable business – bars and prostitution were major industries, and that sleazy legacy lingers....

Hue 9
Hue in Vietnam is an ancient place and shows lot of ancient memories. This is a unique place with ancient structures all over with amazing nature. Out of all the historical buildings, “Royal Tombs” has special importance. This kingdom is famous for its ‘gay’ king. These tombs give the detailed study of how the people of that time used to manage everything. With the little damage to the structures it’s still standing like a king. There is a lake inside where you can enjoy boating. The next attraction to enjoy is “Perfume River”. Boating through the river is an amazing experience especially at night as it seems like sky changing its color. Apart from this “Bach Ma National Park” is a best place to spend a day. The best season to visit is autumn. You can spend a quality time with your family....
