Sleek bridge that's fun to see. Best seen and crossed at night when it's lit up. Kids will think it's interesting. To best see the lighting, best to go downriver, get outdoor seating at a good restaurant and enjoy the view.
The Dragon Bridge was really one of its kind... it was really majestic up close and a beautiful sight at night with its moving and color changing lights... a bit sad we didn't experience the water and fire blowing of the dragon because we were...More
The show is performed every weekends at 9pm. This is one thing to see at nigh time. You should not stand close the head or front the head because the smell from the fire is so bad and you can get wet with the water...More
We were told they close off the tail end of the dragon 15 minutes prior to the show at 9pm. It does puff out 3 infernos that stink of petrol and leave thick soot rising into the air. There is a wait of about 1-2...More

1. The Da Nang airport is within the city precinct so a taxi ride to your hotel will not cost a great deal, I would think less than 150K VND (there will be a 10K VND airport tax added). I generally use the green Mai linh taxis or the green and white Vinasun, but the yellow taxis are also quite good and more abundant. If you are really desperate to save a dollar or two you can ask someone to call a Grab (ie Uber equivalent) or download the app using the airport wifi if you have a smart phone or tablet etc
2. Ba Na Hills is somewhat like Disney land and almost by definition is not a budget place. I'm not sure how adults could spend 3 days there especially in February when it will be quite cool and anyway the weather in Da Nang at that time will be very pleasant, although I suppose it depends on where your from. Ba Na is a great escape in Summer due to the cooler climate, but I doubt it has the same appeal in winter, but I've never visited in winter. If you have children from 4 to 16 they'll love it at anytime.
3. Sorry I've never stayed at Da Nang Riverside, but if you have river views it should be pleasant. If you're on the other side of the building you might possibly get beach views if on a high level, but there are so many high rise buildings going up along the beach front. It is a long walk to the beach
4. It depends what you're use to, but I find the weather very pleasant in February - not too hot and cools down at night. I think its around the low to mid 20s in the day, but you can find this on the web somewhere
5. You can get a Sim at the airport, I haven't done it for a while, but the Sim card itself isn't very expensive, it depends what plan you get and whether you want data, international calls etc. If you don't get it at the airport there are also plenty of mobile phone shops. I've found over the years Vinaphone, Mobiphone and Viettel are all reliable. Actual phone calls are not very expensive and I pay as I go with 100K VND cards (available everywhere) that last me about 2 to 3 weeks, but of course it depends on how many calls you make
Just a couple of other things - you should check your travel time against the dates for New Year (Tet). Vietnam virtually closes down over 10 days or more during this period and it's not the best time to travel. Also I love the beaches in Da Nang, but from December to about March they are at their worst - not very inviting at all; an amazing contrast to the summer months.

Hi All. Looking for suggestions for a medium priced restaurant or bar with the best view for the fire breathing Dragon Bridge. Also have read it does its thing on weekends at 10pm - is that Fri, Sat Sun or just Sat & Sun?

No restaurants or bars that have a close view that I am aware of or that I noticed. 9:00pm is the time it does fire-then water Get there early for a spot as it gets packed...........or see it on YouTube.
da nang Dragon Bridge close hotel (10 Replies)
Hello, I have looked at map as I don't like to ask questions without research, but I am finding it difficult to determine if the Dragon Bridge is visible from any hotels. Can somebody recommend good hotel to see bridge or close to walk there, we are in town for one night. I would like a 3, 4 or 5 star hotel. Thanks if anybody can advise.

The Green Plaza Hotel Da Nang is a 4-star property with rooms in the tower looking directly down towards the western side of the Dragon bridge which is where the heads of the dragons are. It is the best spot if you want to see the night time flames display from the Dragon bridge straight from your room balcony.

Guilin-Yangshou-Longsheng in July (11 Replies)
We will be heading to the region for a few days in early July. Day 1 - Fly into Guilin and get bus to Yangshuo. Day 2 - Hire bike and explore along Yulong River to Dragon Bridge Day 3 - Yangshuo to Yueliang Shan and the water cave Day 3 - Yangdi - Xingping & boat ride Day 4 - Here comes the question! Should we spend the next day in the Yangshou area or is it worth getting to Longsheng to see the rice terraces. I have heard that they are at their best at certain times of the year. is...More

I would definately try to visit the rice terraces!! If you do what orientalred suggests, then you could spend the night at the rice terraces which I would definately recommend. Try to stay in Dazhai or Tiantouzhai ( we stayed at the latter). Have a great time!
