Spoiled by Costa as pullled into Industrial port. bus out took hour and should be passenger terminal wih malls etc.. Expensive shopping but great city. The flyer, Raffles and Chinatown lovely and taxis very cheap . Use them. Cut short on time by Costa so missed cable cars etc annoyingly but told they were great. Do it all!!!
Excellent and exciting City. Do you use the rickshaw drivers but negotiate well. If you agree an hour they will keep you 3 and expect paying for all of them. They are not generous they are in business.Get to grips with the currency $50 US dollars is approx 1 milliom dong. Get your money from the ATM no problem. Shopping is a difficult experience with forceful tactics to lookie lookie ........ be warned. Some lovely bargains to be had but barter.
Da Nang is really not very nice but Hoi An is lovely. Stay there a good few hours, don't worry about missing Da Nang. Marble mountain missed as it was raining. They will take you to the marble factories - they want you to buy. really friendly people
