Overview Of The Port Of Da Nang

About Da Nang
Da Nang is one of the major port cities in Vietnam, in south east Asia. Da Nang is located on the coast of the South China Sea, at the mouth of the Hàn River.

In Da Nang, the Cham Museum has the largest collection in the world of Cham sculpture, with more than 300 sandstone pieces dating from the 4th to 14th centuries.

About 7 miles from Da Nang, the five Marble Mountains are each named for elements - water, metal, wood, fire and earth. Tho Son (earth) is the highest peak, and visitors can climb 153 rather steep steps (admission fee) to the top for fabulous views of Da Nang, China Beach and the Pacific Ocean beyond, as well as temples and shrines. Donations are requested at some of the shrines.

Hoi An, about 22 miles from Da Nang, is a historic town recognised by UNESCO. Hoi An's narrow streets are filled with well preserved architecture such as temples, houses and meeting halls and the town has a quaint, resort-type atmosphere.

Tickets are available at Hoi An Tourist Office for visits to the museums and old houses.

For a history of the trade port, visit the Museum of Trade Ceramics, located in a traditional house and offers a collection of objects from the 13th to 17th centuries.

Lovers of Chinese antiques can visit The Tran Family Home and Chapel.

The Central Market, near the Thu Bon river at Nguyen and Tran Phu streets, have stalls selling a wide variety of items such as food, crafts, spices and fish (haggle for a good price). Marble items ranging from small ornaments to huge statues and handmade clothing are good buys. Shops here sell high-quality silk scarves, purses and other accessories.

Try the local meat-stuffed dumpling speciality called "white roses". Other dishes include ‘pho’ (salty broth, fresh rice noodles, herbs and chicken or beef), ‘cha ca’, (sizzling chunks of fish seasoned with garlic, ginger, turmeric and dill) and ‘banh xeo’ (crispy crepe with pork, shrimp and bean sprouts). Chinese cuisine is also a popular option.
Cruise Terminal
Cruise ships dock at Cat Tien Sa Port, a commercial port about 40 minutes drive from Da Nang. There are a couple of souvenir stalls at the pier selling handicrafts.

Cruise ships may offer shuttle buses to Da Nang, usually dropping off near the market. A limited number of taxis are also available at the pier.
