Da Nang Activities
What to Do in Da Nang
Da Nang has miles of beaches, resulting in plenty of swimming opportunities from May to August when the sea is calm but for those who simply cannot wait to get wet the city also features an exciting water park – the first built in the country. In this mild climate a game of golf is a pleasure and Da Nang certainly delivers with three professionally designed courses with great views and facilities.
The city’s March 29 Park has many activities for both children and adults alike while if you’re rained in you can learn more about this country’s super healthy cuisine and its preparation.

Da Nang Water Park
This is an enormous water park located right in the centre of the city, on September 2nd Street. Danang Water Park covers 10 hectares and is the first amusement park, not only of Danang but also central Vietnam. It is lots of fun - and not just for kids - with slides, pools and the like. In addition, there is an open-air stage where cultural and musical performances are held. It's on the riverbank, 2km beyond the Ho Chi Minh Museum.
Demilitarised Zone (DMZ) Vietnam is popular for fans of military history as it is possible to see hundreds of weapons, artillery and military tanks left behind by foreign troops. Located 100km north of Hue, the iconic war zone is set along Ben Hai River, encompassing five kilometres of land on either side of the border.
Between 1954 and 1975, Demilitarised Zone (DMZ) Vietnam served as a war-free buffer between the North and the South but it’s also the site of some of the worst battles in Vietnam’s history. Today, visitors can still visit the many destroyed foundations of former American military bases buildings, monuments dedicated to local war heroes, and hundreds of war relics displayed within a US combat base-turned-museum.
