I've seen you cry, I've seen you smile.
I've watched you sleeping for a while.

Goodbye my lover
Goodbye my friend

And as you move on, remember me,
Remember us and all we used to be

7 things to do in Da Nang, Vietnam

Hi all!!!
1

Last month, I had the opportunity to visit Vietnam for the first time c/o Angsana Lang Co
I was there for approx 3.5days and I did quite a fair bit of sightseeing. 

Ancient heritage sites, picturesque countrysides, unspoilt beaches and a fusion of French-Vietnamese cuisine, Lang Co is a must-go destination for travellers. With plenty of undiscovered spots to be explored and packed with historical and cultural sights, the region promises a charming and truly alluring adventure.
 

For this post, here are 7 things you can do when you visit Da Nang, Vietnam :)

1) Stay at Angsana Lang Co

Scenic views you can to see during the 1 hour journey from the airport to the resort :)


Angsana Lang Co is situated in Central Vietnam, within the Laguna Lang Co Complex.
It is in close proximity to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Hue, Hoi An and My Son.

This is the room I stayed in when I was there!
It is the Premier Room with an ocean view. Comes together with a private plunge pool and balcony!

"Built in 1601 between a river and a pine forest, the Thien Mu Pagoda ("Heavenly Lady Pagoda") in Hue is one of the oldest and prettiest religious buildings in the country. Among the many interesting artifacts housed at the complex is the car that took the monk Thich Quang Duc to his self-immolation in 1963 Saigon."

6za 6zb

Last but not the least, a MUST visit in Hue is the Tu Duc Tomb!
The architecture of this place is really unique! It combines essence of the Chinese, Indian, Christianity and even has a lil bit of the 'European feel'.

6zh 6zg

"Located in a narrow valley in Duong Xuan Thuong Village, 8km from Hue City, Tu Duc Tomb is considered as one of the most beautiful and picturesque and largest works of architecture of Nguyen Dynasty’s royal palaces and tombs. People say that Tu Duc Tomb is a must in every tour to Hue City."
