things-to-do-Da-Nang-at-night Han River Bridge at midnight in Da Nang, Vietnam

Da Nang’s unfailingly ranked as one of the best places to live in Vietnam thanks to the high quality of life, friendly locals, especially towards expats and travelers, and the myriad of things that’ll have you on the edge of your seat from dusk till dawn. So if you’re thinking that Da Nang is boring, you probably haven’t seen our list below of top things to do in Da Nang at night.

Top Things to Do in Da Nang at Night

Bridge Hopping: Dragon Bridge, Han River Bridge, and Love Bridge

Da Nang is known as the city of unique bridges, so the first things to do in Da Nang at night that you should check off is visiting the three most famous bridges around town:

Dragon Bridge

Google Maps location

Dragon Bridge has become Da Nang’s symbol in recent years. It was designed to look like a dragon, and true to its name, every weekend at 9 PM, the head of the dragon will “breath” fire and water out for around 30 minutes. The show always attracts hundreds of spectator so come early for a good spot.

Tip: don’t stand near the head, you’ll get wet!

This bridge was Vietnam’s first swing bridge so it holds significant values in the local’s heart. Each weekend from 11 PM - 12 AM, the middle part of the bridge will swing from one side to the other, creating an interesting sight that you should observe once.

Love Bridge

Google Maps location

Inspired by the Pont des Arts Bridge in France, this bridge allows love birds to hang padlocks on its railings and take romantic pictures by the heart-shaped red lanterns. It’s only a 5-minute walk from Dragon Bridge so spare some time here to see young local’s dating scene.

Love Bridge’s a common destination for couples

The bridges are within walking distance from each other so you can easily hop from one to the next. We suggest visiting the Dragon Bridge first to see the show, then have a romantic photo-shoot at the Love Bridge. Next, discover the city’s coffee culture by dropping in any of the dozens of cafes on Tran Hung Dao Street, and at 11:30 PM, end the night by seeing the iconic Han River Bridge.

Look for five-star hotels and resorts in Da Nang:


Have Fun at Asia Park

To be honest, you can find amusement parks in every country. Still, it is one of the most entertaining things to do in Da Nang at night.
