1. The best time to visit Danang City
Da Nang is a rising tourist attraction in Viet Nam. It provides real experiences and understandings of the Vietnamese life. This central city took the top spot on TripAdvisor's "Destinations on the Rise" awards last year.
Da Nang has two main obvious seasons: rainy season from September to November and dry season from December to August. That leaves February to May as the best time to visit. And, take heart, Da Nang doesn’t get as hot or cold as other parts of Viet Nam. Occasionally, there are some spells of cold weather but it is not strong and long-lasting. However, we would like to divide time into two other main seasons so that you can grasp the best suitable time for your trip easily. Those are peak season and low season.
The peak season is from Jan to May and June to the end of August and the low season is from September to the end of September. In peak season, the temperature fluctuates from 32-38 degree Celsius. You can swim at My Khe or go to the Cham island or Son Tra peninsula without worrying about rough sea. On the other hand, the price of accommodations is much higher than it is in low season and every tourist attractions here are always crowded that you have to line up and wait for almost haft an hour.
If you are on a tight budget, you can travel in low season. The weather is not always bad in low season except stormy days. In low season, the time from January to February is the wonderful period for traveling.
In February, the city organzies an international firework competition. In June there is an arrival of a beach festival featuring plenty of water sports activities along with cooking demonstrations, parties and cultural performances of the city.
