About the combined tour
This is our highly popular ‘Half and a Half’ private 2-centre trip, which combines the ancient Old Town of Hoi An with the dynamic modern city of Da Nang. Hoi An and Da Nang may easily consume your day, therefore my private trip is a at least 6 hours long and covers the splendor of Hoi An at night. We begin our trip by gathering at your hotel about 10 a.m.-10:30 a.m, followed by a classic Vietnamese coffee at our favorite coffee shop. Throughout the day, many comfort breaks are provided to allow passengers to freshen up if necessary.
“ The trip provided us with valuable insight into the local culture and did not feel like your normal tour at all. It was amusing, educational, and a lot of fun.“ Guest review
Da Nang is my second hometown, and I enjoy showing it off to our international visitors. Today, you will find a prosperous, modern, and fast growing city that is at ease with itself and where many Vietnamese wish to reside! But it also has a rich history, dating back to the ancient kingdom of Champa. It was founded in 192AD and was known as Cua Han during Dai Viet times and Tourane during French colonial administration.
Itinerary of the tour
We will pick you up at your hotel lobby. Then, we go to the ancient ‘Marble Mountains,’ a magnificent cluster of 5 limestone and marble hills that is a well-known pilgrimage destination with peaks, caverns, tunnels, and temples accessible by a short elevator trip. This spectacular setting provides several picture options.
We’ll witness an increasing number of beachfront hotels, as well as My Khe Beach, which Forbes Magazine named one of the “top-10” world beaches”.
The 18th-century pagoda of Ling Ung on the Son Tra peninsular is one of our most revered sites of worship. From here, you can take in breath-taking views of Da Nang and its beaches. In addition to tourists from other nations, you are likely to encounter groups of rural Vietnamese who are visiting the pagoda. Together, you can behold the enormous 67-meter-tall “Lady Buddha” statue as she surveys the East Sea and the distant Cham Islands.
As we go to Hoi An, we stop for lunch at our neighborhood Herb & Vegetable Village, where you can choose from a fantastic set menu of regional specialties from Hoiania.
Hoi An is a developing rural community surrounded by paddy fields where women with “conical” hats produce rice, lush fields where water buffalo graze, fields rich of herbs and vegetables, and a river where fisherman still employ techniques that haven’t changed in centuries. It offers lovely beaches and an ancient harbor with views of the East Sea. But the major draw of Hoi An is its Old Town, which dates mostly from the 15th to the 19th centuries and formerly had the biggest harbor in Southeast Asia. The Old Town, which is designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, provides our guests with exceptional sightseeing options.
Upon arrival, we start our walking tour of this picturesque Historic Town, stopping at temples, old homes with influences from many different cultures, some of which date back to 1780, as well as the well-known Japanese Bridge, which was constructed in 1716. Hoi An is a shopping wonderland, and not just because of the well-known shoe and tailor stores there! Keep an eye out for the well-known lanterns that decorate the streets and buildings of Hoi An; they make excellent mementos of your trip. A great place to view local food is the Central Market.
Hoi An at night is a last “must see,” with its display of lovely lights and lanterns. To round off the evening, we may have some delectable and reasonably priced seafood beneath the lanterns or an 8-course set menu on An-Bang beach while viewing the East Sea for about $10 per person. And in Hoi An, drinks are widely available and reasonably priced too!
Of course, we make sure you get back to your hotel safely at the conclusion of the day, or we’ll be happy to provide fantastic ideas for the remainder of your evening in town.
