Danang is the new darling

Day 1
 Scenic nature sights and heritage explorations are the focus for the day.

0900: Bay views from Son Tra Peninsula
Located at the peninsula's northern tip, the Son Tra Peninsula overlooks the Bay of Danang and the East Sea and is home to the 18th century Linh Ung Pagoda. The largest pagoda in Central Vietnam houses the country's tallest Buddha statue, which stands at 67m. The peninsula was also recently earmarked for development as an ecotourism destination by 2025. It will focus on sustainability projects that protect local flora and fauna. 

1400: Go deep into Vietnam's indigenous roots 
 The Da Nang Museum of Cham Sculpture is home to the largest collection of Cham art. The museum's collection of stone sculptures from the Hindu-practicing Cham civilisation, Vietnam's indigenous culture, dates as far back as the 7th century and come from nearby ruins such as My Son.

 Dine on board a 90-minute evening river cruise along the Han River while catching the live pyrotechnic show at the Dragon Bridge and views of South-east Asia's longest suspension bridge, the Thuan Phuoc bridge. The ship's two restaurants will be able to support up to 500 guests, while its first and second floors, equipped with a modern sound and lighting system, can be booked for private banquets and events of up to 250.

1600: The need for speed
From bumper car rides and 'Formula 1' go-karting racing to bowling, ice skating and PlayStation games, groups can take the opportunity to incorporate some team-building elements into their pick of activities at the 35,000-sqm Helio Center, Danang's first multiservice entertainment complex. When the games are done, the complex also offers dining options at its foodcourt and coffee shop. Or alternatively, groups can opt for professional banquet service for events to conclude their last night in the city.
