Learn about the history that has helped shape Da Nang into the spectacular city that it is today through three fascinating museums that showcase collections of war aircraft, Cham artifacts, works of art and antiques. Then discover why Da Nang is often nicknamed ‘The city of Bridges’ by visiting two of its best; the fire-breathing Dragon Bridge and Thuan Phuoc Bridge.
Da Nang is not only famous for its beautiful sandy beaches, but also for its bridges and museums. We will visit the Ho Chi Minh Museum which features a replica of President Ho’s home in Ha Noi with a fishpond, a house on stilts, a garden and other relics. It's all very genuine and feels as though 'Uncle Ho' is still there. Next is the Museum of the Fifth Military Zone, which has a lot of large war equipment including aircraft and tanks that were captured in the French and American wars by the soldiers of the Fifth Military Division.
Leaving these museums, we will continue to the Cham Museum which gives you an understanding about the Champa existence in the coastal areas of Vietnam. Housing the largest exhibition of Cham sculpture in the world, the museum displays almost 300 terracotta and stone works of art ranging from the 7th to the 15th centuries. Next, head to Thuan Phuoc Bridge at Tien Sa Port, another wonderful bridge in Da Nang City. Our last stops are Dragon Bridge, a very unique and modern bridge that crosses the Han River, the Love Lock Bridge and Ca Chep Hoa Rong Statue, which was designed to spray water towards the Dragon Bridge to present the culture, traditional lifestyle, and literature of Vietnam.
