I rent a bicycle from a shop on Bach Dang street leaving one million Dong for a deposit. Da Nang’s attractions are scattered up and down the beach, and there are lots of bridges connecting the beach with the western mainland.
Seeing Da Nang from bridge is stunning. The dragon city is growing faster than any other city in Vietnam. Tourism is already at its neck and the port gets more and more container ships every year. I think this is going to be like Shanghai one day.
On the other side of the bay, fishing fleets moored in all in blue.
Pedaling hard to the temple where the female budda statue stands high about 66 metres.
Now down to south passes the Da Nang’s main beach, My Khe.
Da Nang invites runners from all over the world for its annual marathon, and I sign up for it.
Cranking harder to the south about 10 Kms will take you to the complex of Marble mountains.
Most visitors go up in a lift, but there is the stone stairs if you want to save some bucks.
View to the beach side.
View to the mountains.
Back on Da Nang city, now this dragon bridge has become an icon of Da Nang.
A T-shirt and the rego number for the marathon. I’ve done it not the full course though.
