Looking for best sightseeing experience in Da Nang, below is some of my suggestions:
1. Sky Bar 360
Address: 36th stage of Novotel hotel, Bạch Đằng st, Đà Nẵng, Vietnam
Best time: Night after 7pm or 6pm if you want to watch the sunset
Price: premium, above 100 000 vnd
Lying at the city center, the Sky Bar 360 is at the top of one of the highest skyscrapers in Da Nang. The Bar is a night club where you can find all of the noisiest entertainments such as dancing, hard rock music, cage dancers, etc. From the sky bar 360 you can have awesome view to the city and the Han river with the amazing design bridges shining in the sunset and night.
* Minus point: The food is quite normal and general.
2. Sun Wheel
Address: Asia Park, 01 Phan Dang Luu, Da Nang
Best time: After 5pm
Price: 100 000 vnd/ticket for Sun Wheel and most of Park’s games
As one of the top 10 biggest Wheels of the world, Sun Wheel is a unmissable place for anybody who want to take a look at Da Nang city from above. The moving cycle of Sun Wheel is around 45 minutes so you can have plenty of time to experience the city from many angles and even looking at the Asia Park, a very elegance park in my opinion, which was designed by Bill Bensley – top 5 world architects.
Minus point: The Sun Wheel may stop for maintenance if necessary, so if you are unlucky…
3. À La Carte Top Bar
Address: A La Carte Hotel, Corner of Vo Nguyen Giap Street & Duong Dinh Nghe Street, Da Nang
Best time: Morning & sunny days
Price: 200 000 – 500 000 vnd
If the city’s light bored you, À La Carte coffee shop will give you the best look at the beautiful beach of Da Nang. The top bar provide elegance place with swimming pool, wooden decoration and nice coffee for you to relax in the middle of peaceful blue color of sky and ocean. The special infinity swimming pool also give you the feeling of diving in the sky at the 24th floor of A La Carte hotel.
* Minus point: Quite expensive and only for the beach view
4. The Old helipad at Son Tra mountain
Address: Son Tra Mountain
Best time: Morning & sunny days or camping at night.
Price: up to the travel means, 600 000 vnd for 4h taxi around Son Tra mountain.
The old helipad is an old U.S.’s army place for helicopter at Son Tra mountain, a quite secret place even with local people, you may need a local friend who know this place for guiding you around the mountain. The road to this place is quite big enough for 7 seats taxi but you shouldn’t drive a motorbike without experience and you can be asked by the soldiers around this place as it is inside the army’s area, but don’t worry, it’s normal and nothing is danger, it’s even safer as you are under the watching of them.
* Minus point: Quite far and hard to reach
Price: 2 800 000 vnd/pax for 12 min of flying
