    Short break in Danang

    For xmas i decided to take Mrs BLD on a Romantic beach holiday to danang, She deserves a holiday for putting up with me. But as it Turns out there was to be NO shagging, Just seafood Gluttony and a never ending tour of temples and whatnot



    But never the less i enjoyed the place, we booked a nice reasonably inexpensive hotel near MY khe beach, Great views over the city and coastline



    There wasnt many Tourists around but there sure was a lot of construction, Im betting this is a place that will rapidly expand

    Heres a bit about Danang

    Danang has a population of about 1 million and doesnt really have a busy feel to it unlike other vietnamese cities, Most Tourists use it as a jumping of point to visit the nearby town of Hoi An or visit the Hai van pass,But theres enough to do to keep you amused for few days, including good beaches and unesco listed sites, golf courses etc, Beers ok to

    This is unusual for somewhere so close to Isaan

    Climate
    Đà Nẵng has a tropical monsoon climate with two seasons: a typhoon & wet season lasting from September through March and a dry season lasting from April through August.

    It is superb for sea food but along the road opposite the beach on waste ground there are rats by the dozen running around from evening into the night.

    This looks like a perfect place actually, half way between the country's two major cities. Warmer than chilly & cloudy Hanoi but cooler than steamy Saigon. Are there any other such beach cities along the coast?

    Hoi an has a beach and a nice heritage town, been there a couple of times so gave it a miss this time and just concentrated on danang, the coastline in danang stretches for miles and you can see some stunning scenery from the top of hai van pass or a train trip from danang to Lang co would be a good way to do it, we ended up taking a taxxi though because i had been on the piss and slept in and missed the train

    Yeah Nha Trang is the same...due to the mountains and coastline as bld says. Makes them great escapes from all the tedious bollocks of songkran in Thailand. We were regulars every year at Nha Trang when I worked in bkk. The weather there at that time of year is just about perfect.

    Good info. Thanks you two. Greens on the way when I can.

    Being 500kms north of Nha Trang, I'm thinking Da Nang will be a couple of degrees cooler next month. Wiki shows it having daytime highs of 26 in February. Perfect

    we flew vietnam airlines vientiane-phnom penh-ho chi minh then Vietjet to Danang, you can drive there from vientiane in a full day if you get going early enough, didnt fancy that this time, The roads are fucked( mostly on the Lao side)



    Only a short flight and they stop in phnom penh for about 30 minutes

    Cheers my pal in Lao has a Lao wife and Lao plated car can that cross border without any prior paper work, just Carnet and buy insurance at the frontier or is it easier to fly? Be nice to have a vehicle to explore the hills.

    I've been told that even ignoring expense taking a Thai vehicle is just too much hassle
    I went to buy some camouflage trousers the other day but I couldn’t find any.

    TA,

    Yes the accommodation selection is very competitive there.

    $80 is not to bad for a quality gaff like that though.

    Ive driven there a couple of times, Lao plated car with the standard border passport for the car,and international drivers license, had insurance bought in vientiane, But wouldnt like to put it to the test if things went pear shaped, The best insurance i could buy cost 16000 kip or $2.00 covers funeral expenses i was told, Driving anywhere in vietnam is a hasssle, The place is just to congested, you rarely get above 50kmh as well. which is probably a good thing considering the insurance, kind of nerve wracking to. better to just fly and use local transport me thinks, cheap as well
