Da Nang 6 nights help with itinery please

We are 4 adults and will be arriving in Da Nang in September 18, and would like help with suggestions on places to visit.

I know Hoi An is a must, but for how long, and where else would you suggest?

For 2 of us it's a first trip to Vietnam so sights, culture, food is what we're seeking.

Looking forward to hearing from you good people.

I had a really great time in that area before. Go check out the Marble Mountains, the Lady Buddha, Han Market, and Hoi Ahn for sure. If you already have a place to stay booked in Danang, there might be a shuttle to Hoi Ahn. It's not necessary to stay down there, but you should go for sure. I had a great guide and learned a lot about it. We had a late lunch and then went through Hoi Ahn after sundown. She said up until 4pm there was car/motor bike traffic, but after then the streets were closed and it was only foot traffic. My Son is a bit of a drive away, but it was also totally worth seeing.

Thanks for replies. I haven't booked any accommodation yet so flexible in where to stay also.

What's in Da Nang? I was sort of thinking it was just a busy town where the airport was based. Please excuse my ignorance.

Maybe i should look for a local guide to take us around?

Make sure you hit Hue. The citadel and the tombs are amazing

Are you only staying in VIetnam for 6 days, or are you heading north or south afterward? This could help with more advise how to split the time between places.

With only 6 days I would try to minimise travel.

As 6 days oone place could be a lot, I would consider heading from Danang straight to Hue, stay two nights there, and then travel to Hoi An via the Hai Van pass on the thrid day, and stay the remaining time in Hoi An to explore the Ancient Town.

This would be the maximum I would try to cover.

In Da Nang, I liked Son Tra Peninsula and Lady Buddha, Hai Van Pass, the central market and lots of good food options, some far from fancy. I was 2 nights in Da Nang and 2 nights in Hoi An. From Hoi An, we rented a scooter to My Son.

Thanks all for your suggestions, the Hai Van Pass sounds great fun.

Looking forward to the trip, hopefully see Hue, Da Nang, and Hoi An over my 6 days stay.
