Free things to do in Da Nang
Dragon Bridge – Cầu Rồng
Opened to traffic on March 29, 2013, the Dragon Bridge is one of the most iconic elements in Da Nang landscape.
This modern bridge crosses the Han River, providing the shortest road link from the Da Nang International Airport to other main roads in Da Nang city, and a more direct route to My Khe Beachon the eastern edge of the city. The bridge was designed and built in the shape of a dragon and to breathe fire and water each Saturday and Sunday night at 9 pm.

Linh Ung pagoda’s construction began in on June 19th, 2004 lunar, after 6 years of construction, on July 30th, 2010, the pagoda was official inaugurated. The pagoda is considered as a work stamped development footprint of Buddhism in Vietnam in the XXI century and a meeting place of heaven and earth’s sacred air and people’s heart.
This is a must visit spot, not just because of the impressive statue itself, but there is also a magnificent bonsai garden and the view of Da Nang from that perspective is simply breathtaking.
Son Tra Mortorbike loop
This Son Tra Loop is one of the things we always recommend to do if you get a bike while in Da Nang.
There are a couple of entry points to get to the top of the mountain where you will be able to see both sides of Da Nang. At the very top there is also a landscape point where you can stop for a drink and enjoy the magnificent view. There is also an ancient banyan tree at one of the end roads which is impressive too.
Come over to My Casa and Jorge will show you how to properly do the loop.
