An evolving city in a constant state of renaissance, not many cities in Vietnam are developing as rapidly as Da Nang. Once known as a provincial backwater, the city is now evolving into a gleamingly pristine metropolis. Stroll along the river and discover ritzy modernist hotels and rapidly emerging commercial complexes. Criss-crossing over the river, spectacular bridges interweave in a matrix of steel, and the southwards beach strip is booming with glitzy hotel and resort developments. Despite its steel-and-glass façade, Da Nang is not without its conventional Vietnamese sights, including educative museums, eclectic street-food shacks, and golden urban beaches. However, nothing is more exciting than seeing Da Nang at its glittering neon-lit best in the evening hours.
