This evening, I had a chance to do a healthy outdoor activity, ‘Kayaking’ in Han River.
We warmed up a little bit before getting on a ride.
My local friend told me that this would be a great experience because we would pass several famous bridges in Danang, and would finish the ride at the pier near Dragon Fish statue.
It's my first time kayaking in a river in the city like this.
I never knew before there was such an activity in Danang.
I like it when there's not too much traffic in the river and the river is so calm, making it very easy to kayak.
It's not too far. The short ride is only about 20-30 minutes.
Or you can do a long ride, like an hour.
The river is clean. The weather is so nice. And, you'll get fit too.
Here we are. Bana Hills. This is the cable car. There is a French Church on the top of the hill.
It's open from 7:30am - 9:30pm.
And 'Bana Hills', the name comes from that at the bottom of the mountain, there are a lot of banana trees, so we can it 'Bana Hills'.
Well, we're going to take a cable car ride. I can't wait! It will be my first time taking this long cable car ride. Let's go!
This is the longest cable car in the world.
Around 5 kilometres from the bottom to the top of the mountain.
I think I like the architecture. It's different from other places.
So, this is the cable car station, but the architecture is traditional Vietnamese.
And it's BIG, like a big gate. And, it's so special.
Danang's climate is mild all year round. Just like tonight, the temperature is just a bit over 20 degrees Celsius. Very comfortable.
It's highly recommended to have a fun ride of this famous local vehicle called ‘Cyclo'.
'Cyclo' is an environmentally friendly three-wheeled pedaled taxi. All drivers are certified by the government.
Bach Dang Street is a scenic route where you can enjoy the view of Han River.
You can also see Danang's government office building lit up at night.
'Dragon Bridge', one of Danang's landmarks, was opened in 2013, providing the shortest road link from the airport to the city.
It is a great architecture to take photos from many angles, both daytime and nighttime.
Do you know that every Sunday and Saturday nights, here, there's a really special show at Dragon Bridge?
Beautiful here. Lights. I love lights. It's changing all the time.
And there's a show. It is held by only on Saturday and Sunday at 9pm.
You can see that it's really crowded downstairs. Many people.
People can come here to the public area to watch.
But I recommend you to sit at TIME Coffee because they have a really nice view from there to watch Dragon Bridge. So, you can see all the things.
How could you get this kind of seats with good views? You have to make a reservation first.
And watch what's going to be The Dragon Bridge show.
The dragon will breathe fire 3 times, followed by breathing water.
And, you can see the boats in the river are very colorful as well. And nice reflections in the river too.
We are in Asia Park!
It contains different cultures and sculptures of different countries in Asia.
Like Cambodia, Thailand, Singapore, China...many countries.
We are going to ride 'Sun Wheel'. Behind us, a very big wheel.
I'm so excited. Let's do it.
How many cabins are there? 60!!!.
I never knew before there was such a high wheel like this one in Danang.
And it's so high. They said that it's 115 metre-high.
It's good. We can see 360 degrees view of Danang.
Especially at nighttime, it's very beautiful.
So, you'd better come at nighttime.
Here is Charming Danang Show.
I love it! I think it's not just a traditional show, but it's like theatre…you’re watching a musical theatre.
I think it's a highly recommended show to watch.
Because when we've experienced a lot of activities and visited a lot of places at Danang, when we watched the show, we know that it's kind of a summary of Danang.
I think it's one of very good shows.
'Cho Han' means Han Market.
This is the main local market here in Danang.
There're so many interesting products. Maybe you can buy as a souvenir...or anything. Here we go!
What are popular products that people usually buy in this market?
On 2nd floor, there is Ao Dai, a traditional Vietnamese costume. And…silk.
And on the first floor, there is dried seafood such as dried shrimps and dried fish.
It's a sea port!
There're still more stories about DANANG. Stay tuned for the next post.
