Coastal cities are the first choice of many tourists because there is nothing perfect than spending the summer vacation in cool cities where you can eat seafood, enjoy the fresh air and immerse in nature. This summer, let’s visit Da Nang and Hoi An and enjoy the most perfect vacation.
Why Danang and Hoi An is the best combination?
Da Nang and Hoi An is the best combination because they are close to each other. It takes about 45 minutes for you to travel by bus. However, in my opinion, you should travel by motorbike and enjoy the peaceful coastal way. It would be more adventurous and spend more time, about 1 hour, but it worth trying.
Secondly, Da Nang owns a modern beauty and Hoi An is a peaceful city. In Da Nang, you can enjoy the trendiest lifestyle: Lively bars, fashionable clothes, and luxurious meals, but when you have had enough of the hustle and bustle city life, let’s go to Hoi An and enjoy the serene life: Greenfields, fresh air, and the galaxy at nights.
Besides, many tourists agreed that Da Nang – Hoi An is a real paradise for people who want to let their hair down after working – hard days. If they are gourmet, they will love these cities in the first moments when trying local and international food. If they are a big fan of fashion, these cities will help them become a fashionista in the lowest budget.
Another reason is the life in these cities is easy to adapt. People are friendly, easy-going and always assist you when you are in trouble. The traffic is safe, and hardly congestion in rush hour. My suggestions below will help you with how to enjoy these cities perfectly.

Some suggested things to do in Hoi An
Immerse in the local life at the market
Like Da Nang, to enjoy Hoi An, firstly, you should go to the market where you can enjoy the cuisine and ambiance. If you aren’t into the crowd, you shouldn’t go to Hoi An on the full moon day. After eating the local food, let’s stroll along the roads and admire colorful lanterns. If you want, drop paper lanterns and make a wish. Many international tourists said that one of their favorites is watching Vietnamese couples dressing traditional clothes and taking photos wedding. Why don’t you try?
Visit some ancient attractions in the Ancient Town
Don’t forget to visit ancient architecture such as the Japanese bridge and ancient houses. They would cost you the amount of money but your family would get interesting information.
Enjoy your time in some lovely cafes
If you need some rest, cafés are the great places to take a seat. Because of tourism, many unique coffee shops are run by local and expatriate people. Jack’s Cat Café is a typical example. If you are a cat fancier, this is a real paradise for you. If cats aren’t your cup of tea, don’t worry, there are many cafés where you can hide and chat with your friends. With the price fluctuate from $2 to $20, and there is a wide variety of drinking, Reaching out Tea House is always my choice when I need the silence.
If you feel exhausted, why don’t you book tickets and fly to Da Nang? Beach and tranquil life are waiting for you. Normally people book accommodation in Danang and spend a day discover Hoi An then come back to their hotel. That’s a perfect trip!
