Vietnam Shore Excursions Chan May Da Nang

vietnam-shore-excursions-chan-may-da-nang-cover

Da Nang, along with Ho Chi Minh City and Hanoi, is one of the most livable cities in Vietnam. In fact, it has surpassed the other two to be crowned “the most liveable city of Vietnam”. Mere hours there won’t be enough to completely explore the land but would be enough to lure you into coming back.

About Chan May Da Nang Port

Chan May Port is in Thua Thien Hue Province, 60 km to Hue, 55 km to Da Nang, and 80 km to Hoi An. The port is conveniently located near Lang Co Beach, Hai Van Pass, and Bach Ma National Park, etc. In recent years, Chan May Port has been frequented by luxury ships including Royal Caribbean, Celebrity Cruises, Tui Cruises, Costa Criere, and Viking Ocean Cruises.

Attractions around Chan May Da Nang Port

Canh Duong Beach and Lang Co Beach are really close to the port, very convenient if you just want to chill by the beach. These beaches are not that well-known, so it’s still pristine and absolutely beautiful.

Hai Van Pass is one of the most challenging yet rewarding routes in Vietnam. If you have some time to spare, take this path instead of the tunnels and feast your eyes!

Most people opt for the tunnels, so there will be no traffic

There is also Bach Ma National Park that stretches from the east coast to the western mountain ranges of Laos, an ideal choice for those nature enthusiasts. Check out more national parks in Vietnam.

Da Nang Day Excursions

This “Vietnamese Singapore” city has so much to offer. You can chill by stunning beaches like My Khe or Non Nuoc. You can even go the extra mile by getting to the glamorous Cu Lao Cham island for a snorkeling session looking for coral reefs.

If you are more interested in attractions unique to the area, we suggest you check out Marble Mountains - a group of 5 limestone outcrops that represents the 5 natural elements, drop by Cham Museum for a cultural dose, stroll around the local Han Market, and take a look at the iconic Dragon Bridge.

For a day trip, there is Son Tra Peninsula where you can visit Son Tra Quan Yin, the 69.7 meters Goddess of Mercy statue, and Ling Ung Pagoda. There are also some beaches like Bai But, Bai Nam if you feel like taking a dive.

Another way to spend a whole day at Da Nang is to experience the world’s longest cable car at Ba Na Hills - a manmade kingdom resting on clouds.

Hoi An Ancient Town from Chan May Da Nang? Why not?

Hoi An is unlike any other place you have seen. UNESCO recognized Hoi An as a World Heritage Site in 1999. The town hosts a peacefully antique ambiance that blends perfectly with the well-preserved Chinese-Japanese-Vietnamese architecture. Signature features of the modern 21st century like high-rises, cars, or pollution are not easy to be seen.

For more information, visit our Hoi An Travel Guide. If you have some time to spare, do pay a visit to Cham Ruins at My Son Sanctuary.
