Central Vietnam, Da Nang
I was in Da Nang for a 5-day vacation together with my friend during the typhoon season. We did a check on the weather forecast before we go, the weather was fine. And that was the only time we were available for vacation. After considering the various resorts in Da Nang, we decided to stay at Furama Resort instead of the newer resorts as I like the open layout of the Furama Resort and their suite.
We took the morning flight via SilkAir to Da Nang International Airport. Then from the airport, we took a taxi to Furama Resort. The taxi ride was around half an hour. The check-in process was smooth and efficient. Upon checking-in we were shown to our Ocean Studio Suite.
Following are pictures of the Resort Lobby, Suite and My Khe Beach or better known as China Beach by the American soldiers who visited for R&R during the war in Vietnam.
After checking-in, we arranged our transportation/tour to Ba Na Hills, Hoi An and Hue through the resort concierge. We spent the rest of the day relaxing, chilling by the beach.
About Da Nang (Extracts from Wikipedia)
Da Nang is the third largest city in Vietnam in terms of urban population, and one of the major port cities, in addition to Ho Chi Minh City and Hai Phong. Situated on the coast of the Eastern Sea, at the opening end of the Han River, it is the biggest city in Central Vietnam. Da Nang is the commercial and educational center of Central Vietnam, with a well-sheltered, easily accessible port; its location on the path of National Route 1A and the North–South Railway makes it a hub for transportation. It is located within 100 km of several UNESCO World Heritage Sites, including the Imperial City of Hue, the Old Town of Hoi An, and the My Son ruins.
