Looking for best sightseeing experience in Da Nang, below is some suggestions.
1. Sky Bar 36
- Address: Novotel hotel, 36 Bach Dang Street, Hai Chau District, Da Nang City
- Best time: Night after 19h00 or 18h00 if you want to watch the sunset
Lying at the city center, the Sky Bar 36 is at the top of one of the highest skyscrapers in Da Nang. The Bar is a night club where you can find all of the noisiest entertainments such as dancing, hard rock music, cage dancers, etc. From the Sky Bar 36 you can have awesome view to the city and the Han river with the amazing design bridges shining in the sunset and night.
The Bar also have special music events with the participation of many famous singer every week.
Minus point: The food is quite normal and general.
2. Sun Wheel
- Address: Sun World Da Nang Wonders, 01 Phan Dang Luu Street, Hai Chau District, Da Nang City
- Best time: After 17h00
As one of the top 10 biggest Wheels of the world, Sun Wheel is a unmissable place for anybody who want to take a look at Da Nang city from above. The moving cycle of Sun Wheel is around 45 minutes so you can have plenty of time to experience the city from many angles and even looking at the Sun World Da Nang Wonders, a very elegance park in my opinion, which was designed by Bill Bensley – top 5 world architects.
Minus point: The Sun Wheel may stop for maintenance if necessary, so if you are unlucky
3. A La Carte Rooftop Bar
- Address: A La Carte Hotel, Corner of Vo Nguyen Giap Street & Duong Dinh Nghe Street, Son Tra District, Da Nang City
- Best time: Morning & Sunny days
If the city’s light bored you, A La Carte Rooftop Bar will give you the best look at the beautiful beach of Da Nang. The top bar provide elegance place with swimming pool, wooden decoration and nice coffee for you to relax in the middle of peaceful blue color of sky and ocean. The special infinity swimming pool also give you the feeling of diving in the sky at the 24th floor of A La Carte hotel.
Minus point: Quite expensive and only for the beach view
4. The Old helipad at Son Tra Peninsula
- Address: Son Tra Peninsula
- Best time: Morning & Sunny days or camping at night.
The old helipad is an old U.S.’s army place for helicopter at Son Tra Peninsula, a quite secret place even with local people, you may need a local friend who know this place for guiding you around the mountain. The road to this place is quite big enough for 7 seats taxi but you shouldn’t drive a motorbike without experience and you can be asked by the soldiers around this place as it is inside the army’s area, but don’t worry, it’s normal and nothing is danger, it’s even safer as you are under the watching of them.
Minus point: Quite far and hard to reach
Why not? Da Nang have a Helicopter tour for anyone want to take a look at the city from 500 meters above. From the Helicopter you can take a wider look at Da Nang and other area to contemplate the unique combination of Son Tra Peninsula, Da Nang Beaches and Marble Mountain.
Minus point: Very expensive
