As compiled by British magazine Tatler published by Condé Nast Publications, iconic Golden Bridge is exceedingly Instagram-worthy. Situated amongst lush nature on top of Ba Na Hills, the bridge’s gold-gilded frame stands out in its misty surroundings, thereby creating otherworldly photos suitable for one’s Instagram feed.

Dragon Bridge is another site that’s sure to be a hit on social media, with the bridge representing a symbol of the Vietnamese city, with an undulating golden dragon sitting atop the 666-metre crossing in downtown Da Nang.

The British magazine also made some recommendations for foodie travelers, with the Dragon Bridge night market being a top choice.

No visit to the central city is complete without munching on the delectable local cuisine it has to offer, including Mi Quang (Vietnamese Turmeric Noodle) and Bánh Tráng Nướng (Grilled Vietnamese Rice Paper with Egg, Pork, and Condiments). 

For the relaxed traveler, there are multiple choices for accommodation in the city. Perched on a private bay overlooking the Son Tra Peninsula, InterContinental Da Nang can take all one’s worries away. Meanwhile, My Khe beach is beloved for its peaceful and relaxing atmosphere.

Tatler suggested adventurous travelers pay a visit to the Marble Mountains, a cluster of five stunning limestone peaks named after elements of oriental philosophy (metal, plant, water, fire, and soil).

Known to some as Monkey Mountain, a visit to Son Tra Mountain is a must for the adventurous traveler. Home to a diverse ecosystem, over 1,000 plant and 120 animal species inhabit the mountain, including the endangered Red-shanked doc langurs.

Linh Ung Pagoda is a good suggestion for the cultural traveler and is a testament to the emergence of Buddhism in Vietnam. Legend has it that the pagoda was built after a Buddha statue drifted to the site during the age of the Nguyen Dynasty.

Since then, the pagoda is often visited by both the faithful and tourists, with the site being nicknamed ‘Buddhist paradise on earth’. It also houses the tallest Buddha statue in Vietnam, the Lady Buddha Da Nang, who overlooks the Son Tra Peninsula, the article wrote.
