Last week, my friends and I went to Hoian and Danang for holiday in 4 days 3 nights. It was really an interesting trip. After the trip, I would like to share some experiences for you, particularly foreigners, to have a nice trip.
Firstly, in order to have a nice trip you have to choose the best time to go. My friends and I go in the mid-summer, so the weather is really awful. It is too hot and dry. Luckily, we walk to Son Tra Peninsula, which is near beach, so we can feel cool environment. In the second day we go to Hoi An Old Quater. Unfortunately, it rains cats and dogs. We have to take a rest at a clothes shop until it is better. We buy rain coat and walk around the streets in Old Quater. After the rain, atmostphere is clear and cool, which makes people feel comfortable. We walk in the rain and take pictures. It is so nice at that time when it is getting dark and almost shops turn on the lanterns. You can see a colorful picture along the street with various colors of red, yellow, blue, pink, purpil and so on. Therefore, the recommendation for you is that you should visit Hoian in the spring from January to May.
Secondly, you should prepare your good health. In the trip, you have to walk a lot. My friends and I hire motorbike. We go to Son Tra Peninsula by motorbike and take a rest on the top of the mountain. It is quite difficult to go by motorbike because the road has slippery slope. You should take care of yourself and bring sunglasses and long shirt. When visiting Danang, you cannot miss Son Tra Peninsula where the landscape is really nice and majestic.
If you love adventure travel, you can go to Hai Van Pass. Hai Van Pass is one of the most scenic hillside roads in Vietnam. Visiting Hai Van Pass and braving the steep winding roads of a paved mountain pass, you will have a chance to discover peace, wuite and history along the way. When standing on Hai Van Pass, two feelings we experience: amazement at passing through the clouds and fear when seeing the dangerous bends of the road.
In the third day, we go to My Khe Beach and enjoy feeling of lying on the sand. You also can go to An Bang Beach or Cua Dai Beach in Hoian. Beaches in Danang and Hoian are really really clean and nice. Sand is smoothy and beautiful. When swimming in My Khe Beach, you can let your eyes see to the South is Linh Ung Pagoda with tall and big white statue of Bodhisattva.
Four days in Hoian are really memorable days in my holiday. I will share you about what to eat in Hoian. You can follow my website to update information.
