Danang is the largest city on Vietnam’s Central Coast, and the economic hub for the region’s impressive development. While Hoi An is well-known for its historic charm, Danang is a dynamic, growing city with a panoramic riverfront area with a number of cultural and natural sites nearby.

Hoi An is Vietnam’s most charming and atmospheric town, an old port city that has remained remarkably well preserved for hundreds of years. A stroll through the city’s lantern-lit old town, along winding lanes, temples and Chinese shophouses is a romantic journey to the past.

Hoi An (then called Lam Ap Pho) was the main trading port of the Cham Empire from the 2nd to the 14th centuries. The city rose to prominence again in the 16th century under the Nguyen Lords and became a major economic center. Chinese, Japanese and traders from Europe all played a role in the city’s development, giving it a uniquely international flavor.

Today, Hoi An’s historic charm coexists with abundant shopping and chic modern restaurants, making it a top tourist destination and a culinary haven.

Located approximately 100km from the InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort, this charming old capital city on the Perfume River is worth a visit for its UNESCO World Heritage Complex of Monuments, a fascinating look at the height of feudal Vietnam. Established as the capital of unified Vietnam in 1802, Hue was the political, cultural and religious center under the Nguyen Dynasty until 1945.
