A long weekend in Danang

Danang is one of the major port cities in Vietnam and the biggest city on the South Central Coast of Vietnam. Danang is also a up and coming beach holiday destination and is favoured by the wealthy Vietnamese as a holiday spot. Flying time is roughly three hours from Singapore. Danang seems to have put infrastructure in place for future developments unlike places such as Phuket in Thailand. We were staying at the year old InterContinental Danang Sun Peninsula Resort which is about 35 minutes from the airport and away from the main holiday strip. The hotel had its own beach and is set in the side of the Mythical Monkey Mountain. The Hotel also draws inspiration from the French who occupied Danang previously and local architecture.
The resort would have to be one of the most beautiful resorts we have stayed in in terms of setting and attention to detail in the buildings and surrounds.
