According to Skyscanner, the joy of heading abroad during late summer is the chance to discover new places for worldwide visitors. And during August in Vietnam, Da Nang and the Central Vietnam remain dry and sunny - a perfect condition for lazy days on the beaches or mornings exploring the nearby attractions.

Da Nang is not only famous for its wonderful bridges but also beaches. Soft golden sands, clean crystal waters and lots of chances to enjoy watersports make the city one of Vietnam’s best beach destinations. One of the most beautiful beaches in Vietnam should mention Non Nuoc beach, which sits in the shadow of the Marble Mountains. Another charming beach that boasts a long span of sand is My Khe beach. Visitors can also take a day tour to explore the network of natural caves in the Marble Mountains or pay a visit to Buddhist pagodas and Hindu grottoes.

To the Northeast of the city, in the Son Tra Peninsula, lies the Linh Ung Pagoda, one of the largest pagodas in Vietnam, surrounded by majestic mountains and trees, making the atmosphere there very fresh and comfortable. The most prominent feature of Linh Ung Pagoda is the Lady Buddha statue, which is also one of the tallest statues in Vietnam with a height of 67 metres, equivalent to that of a 30-floor building. This place is a wonderful place to watch the sunset.
