Only 13 km away from the center of Da Nang city, Son Tra Peninsula belongs to Son Tra District. This is a typical Vietnam tourism magnet along the coastline: fantastic, untouched, natural with transparent seas, white sand, and mysterious primitive jungle with a vast diversity of plants and animals. While Da Nang is best known for its world famous beaches and natural surroundings few people realize how gorgeous Da Nang is at night, showing off its beauty, peace, prosperity and richness.
Another highlight of Da Nang is the romantic Han River, harmoniously complimenting significant architectural works including a number of impressive bridges. When the sun goes down, Han River wears a radiant jacket reflected from street and building lights along the banks. The river looks like a colourful silk strip winding across the heart of the city.
