In terms of where to live, anywhere in the west side districts of the city are generally considered ideal, but the majority of expats choose the Hai Chau district.

You can visit many rooftop bars that are located at hotels free of charge. You only need to consume a drink or eat. At some hotels, you will even get a towel. My favorite rooftop swimming pool is at the Cicilia Hotel.

If you want to have fun, you can go to this amusement park, the Sun World Asia Park located in the city center. You can easily spend a full day here with all the rides, roller-coasters, and arcade games. It's a nice break every now and then.

Food that you must try: Mi quang is a typical dish. This tasty dish is made with rice noodles, and it usually contains shrimp, roast pork, and quail eggs. A bowl of this only costs about $1.50 and it will fill you up! Chao tom is another popular dish that consists of shrimp and garlic paste wrapped around sugarcane.

For coffee places, here are our favorites: Hide Out Café, perfect for remote workers and for having Tinder dates. Six on Six Café has fantastic wifi. Pool House in the Hyatt Regency Resort is another good place. You can just come here and tell them you will get a coffee at the Pool House and they'll let you in. You can also use the swimming pool, and you are just a step away from the beach.

Suggested day trips from Da Nang - My Son (45km away, it’s the smaller version of Angkor Wat). You can get there by motorbike, it takes around 1 hour passing beautiful villages, rice fields and even a cemetery of Viet Cong fighters. Absolutely worth seeing. Also, visit Hoi An - one of the most beautiful towns in all Vietnam. Keep in mind there will be quite a lot of tourists. It is also known for its tailors and silk.

For bars: you can join the Paint Nights and Quiz Nights at N Pub, near May An and the beach. If you like beer, you can visit 7 Bridges Brewery Company located by the Han River. They have a long bar on the ground floor, a billiard table to play on the 1st floor, and the 3rd floor is the super cool rooftop terrace. From the rooftop terrace, you can see the fire and water show of the Dragon Bridge. Finally, Sky36 Club is the highest rooftop bar in Da Nang city centre, a great place to party if you like posh places.

The safest way to exchange your money is at a local bank. I wouldn't trust money exchange booths or offices that are not associated with a proper bank.

You can volunteer with Precious Plastic Da Nang. It is a community of people working towards a solution to plastic pollution in Vietnam. It's a wonderful place to volunteer and even meet other cool people as a result: https://www.facebook.com/PreciousPlasticDaNang/

If you visit during the Tet Holiday, keep in mind that most restaurants, bars, hotels and supermarkets will be closed, and the ones that remain open charge an extra Tet-fee. The good thing is, the villages are beautifully decorated. It is really special to visit Vietnam during the Tet Holiday.

Some things that you must visit are: Marble Mountains with its spectacular views of My Khe Beach and Non Nuoc Beach. The Am Phu Cave is worth seeing. There is no need to buy your tickets beforehand. Three Dragon bridge is also a must. On the weekends the dragon spits fire and water. Right in front, you have a night market with food, drinks, and a few fun games. Go trekking at the Bach Ma National Park. Visit the Son Tra peninsula - it is a combination of the only marine ecosystem of natural forests in Vietnam. It's about 10 km from the city center.

For transport, you will have to use traditional taxis to go large distances inside the city, but make sure you negotiate the rate with the driver beforehand. Also, you can rent an electric car or a scooter, just be careful at night. Vietnam is a motorcycle society and there is always an accident happening around. At night the driver's vision gets worse, so be careful with cars and motorcycles when you walk.

Xuan Thieu Beach and Thanh Binh Beach are very popular. Both are offer incredible white sands, blue water and fewer tourists. Also stop by My Khe Beach. It was once voted the most beautiful beach on the planet by Forbes Magazine. For hidden beaches: So Tra Peninsula and Tien Sa, Lang Co Beach.
