Choosing the location is also a Han river cruise experience that you should grasp.

According to the majority, they often choose the 2nd floor because it has a broader view. However, if you do not have time to select this area, do not be too sad because the first-floor area also has many benefits:
The 1st floor has a larger area than the 2nd floor, so it is more spacious. As many people choosing the 2nd floor, the space on the 1st floor will usually be quieter, suitable for those who want to find relaxation and peace. The area at the top of the first floor is designed to be quite empty, so you can move up there to look around or check-in.
Sitting on the first floor means you can sit close to the river. In this position, you will feel the calm and gentleness of the Han River at night beside the lights, the sky, and the bridges reflected on the water surface. In addition, there is another remarkable thing that on high water days, if you are lucky, you will see schools of fish swimming along with the boat, even jumping on the water.
Reviews Han River Cruise from Tripadvisor
We chose the ‘Tradicitonal’ Dragon River cruise to experience the beautiful bridges on Da Nang. The cruise itself was a wonderful experience. The night wad cool but not cold and the views were amazing. We chose not to go for the dinner as it was only 1.5 hours so we settled for drinks. The staff were kind and courteous and were attentive to our needs. Definitely recommend this ad a must do in Da Nang.

Cruise was good. Pretty sights except that the crews on the cruise was not very information. Eveeyone was disappointment as we didn’t get to see the Dragon Bridge spit fire. That was the main reason people would buy to go on the cruise to watch the Dragon Bridge blow fire!
