"What's up guys, we're here in Da Nang" "About to take surfing lessons, then we're gonna head over to Hoi An.
No!" "We're just gonna relax for the day and enjoy ourselves, check it out!" This is Da Nang.
It's the fifth largest city in Vietnam and it's about half way up the east coast.
Now I know we said we were going to take surfing lessons but when we arrived at the surf shop, there was no one there.
So we decided to just play on the beach.
It had been a long time since I got to swim in the ocean, and I wasn't going to miss this opportunity.
Getting to Da Nang from HCM city is very easy.
I got on Vietnam Airlines and booked a flight a day before for $50 USD Da Nang is an incredibly unique and beautiful city with plenty to do.
But unfortunately for you viewers, all I wanted to do was relax on the beach.
Well, kind of relax.
"Selfie! Selfie!" Beaches in Da Nang were not crowded what so ever and it was really nice to relax out near the round fishing boats.
After that we met a guy selling food off his bicycle.
Well his mobile bicycle kitchen.
We parked, he cooked sweet corn with fried seafood, and gave us chairs to sit and eat.
"Yum!" It was pretty nice to have some street food right next to the beach.
"Did you ask him if he was a doctor again?" "No I asked him when his birthday is.
" So the rest of our time there was spent eating, having drinks and eating more food.
and relaxing on the beach.
"Hi! I'm really mealing it!" If you want to visit a place with lots of things to do, Da Nang is the perfect place to do it.
I really enjoyed my time and all the authentic Vietnamese food I got to try.
You are located about twenty minutes away from Hoi An, which is a more traditional style town and seaport.
If you fly to Da Nang and want to see Hoi An, rent a motorbike and go! And let's not forget about Smiley! "What up bro?" "What's up from First Step Travelers!" So after spending all that time in HCM City and Da Nang, it was time to say goodbye to Carly! "What are your final thoughts?" "This week was awesome! We explored, we did Jiujitsu, Karate!" "Rock climbing, got stuck in a coffee shop for two hours, rode motorbikes in the rain!" "Ate coconuts!" "We went to Da Nang" "I don't know, everything we did was fun.
" "We tried a lot of street food.
" "You know this music right now is very appropriate for saying goodbye.
" It was time to head to the north of Vietnam.
Hanoi!" What's up guys, thanks for watching, I really hope you enjoyed that video.
Like I said, Da Nang is very close to Hoi An.
Unfortunately I didn't make it there myself.
But I've heard incredible things and seen incredible pictures so I definitely recommend checking it out.
There's plenty of street food and plenty of things to do in Da Nang so I definitely recommend stopping here.
The flights are very reasonable.
