Da Nang city and food tour
Local experience Free cancellation No booking or credit card fees Instant confirmation
Today’s Da Nang is wealthy, modern and a rapidly expanding city – its our third largest. You’ll experience a bustling but stable place that is comfortable with itself. Unsurprisingly where many Vietnamese aspire to live! So its sometimes hard to imagine Da Nang’s long history with origins dating back to the ancient Champa’s King Dom. During early “Dai viet” time it was be call ” Cua Han” and “Tourane” in French colonial period.
With this long and divers history comes a fiercely proud people with unique culinary traditions, making Da Nang one of the most compelling food destinations anywhere in southeast asia.
This tour about food for everyday Vietnam, food that stimulates all 5 senses at everyday price for locals, prepared with pride at market food stalls, make-shift street restaurants and in what sometimes appears to be the owner’s front room!
Begin your day with pickup from your hotel in Da Nang City or Hoi An or even Hue city are could’n be barriers for our tour guide.
A suggested itinaerary begins with traditional coffee before moving to Marble Mountains, which is located in Hoa Hai Ward, Ngu Hanh Son District, about 7km from the centre of Da Nang City in the southeast, a stunning cluster of 5 lime stone and marble hills which is a well know pilgrimage site with peaks, caves tunnels and temples. Visiting anywhere in and around Da Nang it is difficult not to see remnants of, or escape discussion of the effects of the Viet Nam War – in 1965 the US Marine Corps landed at ” Red beach 2” just north of Da Nang, and our International Airport was once the Giant Da Nang US airbase, My Khe beach was an area for R&R (Rest and relaxation/recuperation/recreation). Marble Mountains was not immune to the war’s effects, so remember to ask me about its use during the conflict.
Then we’ll make our way to one off my favorite local cafes in Da Nang city. After sweltering hiking, now is relaxing time and we discuss our food tour itineraries ( and any intolerance ) with you. In dripping coffee times, we’ll share one part of Vietnamese culture, we’re not in a rush, we happy to spend 10′ even 15 minutes for a proper coffee taste before the start of new day or lunch break.
Next we drive to once of our most sacred place of worship is the 18th century Buddhism temple on Son Tra peninsular where you will enjoy breath taking views of Da Nang and its beaches. Along with visitors from many countries you will certainly meet groups of rural Vietnamese visiting the temple and can marvel with them gigantic 67m high “Lady Buddha” statute as she gazes out over the Eats and Cham Islands in the distance.
We try at least 10 local delicacies with could include pate breadsticks to various steamed savoury rice cakes, Vietnamese PIZZA and salads to rice dumpling originally created for the emperors in the imperial city of Hue, Vietnamese soup to the spring rolls of central Vietnam.
Returning to the city, we going to visit Da Nang Dragon Bridge – one of the most beautiful bridges in Da Nang. Fire and Water Breathing, making it an incredible highlight in Danang City. Not to be missed if you travelling with our local guide on a Saturday or sunday. during the tour you will be offered a choice of lovely Vietnamese food and drink at excellent local restaurants if required.
And finishing this foodie part of our tour bay trying the local’s favourite dessert! All depending of course on availability and your personal preferences.
The last stop in our itinerary is Han Market which we will go shopping and watch he locals daily life. Han Market where you can find hundreds of stalls selling an array of local produce, handicrafts, T-shirts, and accessories. It’s very much like a miniature version of Ben Thanh Market central market in Ho Chi Minh City, and even if you aren’t necessarily looking to buy anything it still offers a fascinating glimpse into local life in Da Nang.
Finally though, our ending day will come to a close at around 19:00 when we return you safely to your hotel or give you great recommendations for the rest of your evening in this most vibrant of asian cities.
