Hue/ Da Nang (Chan May) Port Good to Know
The port of Chan May is located halfway between two historic and important cities: Da Nang and Hue. At the height of the Vietnam War, Da Nang was America’s major strategic base. And the 1968 Tet Offensive marked a major turning point in that conflict – particularly in the bitter fighting for control of the old imperial capital. But that was nearly four decades ago. Today Hue is a World Heritage Site.
Visitors will long remember its imposing Imperial Citadel and the serene harmony of the Thien Mu Pagoda. Marble Mountain Beach, where American marines stormed ashore in 1965, is now an internationally renowned resort. The surrounding coast is lined with superb white-sand beaches. Vietnam’s major cultural attractions are within an easy drive for Da Nang Hoi An Shore Excursions.
Good to Know
Da Nang, Hue and Hoi An are comparatively safe, but like almost every crowded tourist area, there are pickpockets and scammers. There have been some incidents of men on motorbikes snatching purses from tourists in the crowded Central Market (a public market with lots of tables) in Hoi An. There also have been reports of pickpocketing by groups of young boys begging for money at the markets in Hue. Remember to keep handbags, shopping bags and backpacks close at hand at all times.
Keep currency and other valuables in cross-body bags that are difficult to grab or cut. While this isn’t exclusive to Vietnam, ask first before you take a photo of a colorful local. The person might expect a small fee. It’s best to set the price in advance than argue about its cost after the fact. That is the reason why you should consider when you are on Da Nang Hoi An Shore Excursions.
Food and Drink
The Vietnamese love seafood, but chicken, beef, pork, vegetables and fruit are common in their dishes. Their cuisine is considered very healthy and non-fattening, which might explain why most of the people are thin, despite the fact that they seem to eat all day long. Dishes are often flavored by fish sauce made of fermented anchovies and spiced with lemongrass, ginger, Vietnamese mint, coriander, Saigon cinnamon, bird’s-eye chili, lime and fresh basil leaves.
The result is an enticing combination of contrasts — sweet, salty and spicy. Here are somethings you should recommer when taking da nang hoi an shore excursions.
Pho is the Vietnamese noodle soup that is a particular favorite for breakfast, while banh mi, a stuffed local bread resembling a baguette sandwich, is a treat any time of the day. Upscale dining is often a fusion of French and Vietnamese cuisine, a favorite of foodies around the planet. To dine like a native, take rice from the large shared dish and put it in your rice bowl. Use chopsticks to pick meat and seafood from serving dishes and add to the rice. Remember, it is very bad form to stick chopsticks into the rice bowl vertically — it is the Buddhist sign of death.
In Da Nang Many local seafood restaurants are available along My Khe Beach in Da Nang. For fancy restaurants, some suggestions during your Da Nang Hoi An Shore Excursions are: Water Front, Bau Troi Do, The Fat Fish, …
In Hoi An, most passengers will have lunch at Brother’s Cafes during their Da Nang Hoi An Shore Excursions. The restaurant is in town where you enjoy scenic seating outside in the gardens or upscale comfort inside. Try the local specialty, the meat-stuffed dumpling called “white roses.” (27 Pham Boi Chau Street; (84235) 3914150; open daily 10 a.m. to 11 p.m.) Hoi An’s hip spot is the Mango Room.
Grab a street-front seat and have a Vietnamese beer. The food is good, too. The owner spent time in the U.S., and the menu has both Vietnamese and California-influenced offerings. (111 Nguyen Thai Hoc; (84235) 3910839; open daily 8 a.m. to midnight).
Culture & History
Da Nang’s role in Vietnamese history is primarily as a port city which rose to prominence in the 19th century. Before that, Da Nang was a relatively small village that was colonized by the French in the 17th century. In 1954, the French ceded control of the port city, and Da Nang experienced a period of substantial population growth. Today, Da Nang is beginning to come into its own as a trade center and a place where jobs in web and technology are booming, too.
Da Nang’s culinary scene is remarkable yet unpretentious, so don’t expect an overly fussy dining experience. Some of the best eats are found in street markets and back streets. Here is the main port for most cruise ships with da nang hoi an shore excursions.
Facilities & Location
The Chan May port is about an hour from the center of Da Nang, and some travelers pass through Hoi An from there. The Da Nang cruise port is minimally equipped, but there are some basic open-air market stalls with jewelry, clothes, and other Vietnamese souvenirs available for tourists to purchase during their Da Nang Hoi An Shore Excursions.
For da nang hoi an shore excursions, transportation options are limited from the port of Chan May. The best ways to get around are to book private transportation or take one of the local taxis into the city from the Da Nang cruise port. From the Chan May port, it’ll take about an hour to get into Da Nang. Car rentals are also an option for travelers during a stop in Da Nang.
There’s not much at the cruise terminal itself in the way of shopping, but once you head into Hue, Dong Ba market is popular with locals. You can buy any goods here. Open-air markets and a walkable set of storefronts in Hue make it an easy, relaxed day of shopping. Da Nang Hoi An Shore excursions is a great chance for you to buy souvenirs for your family.
Currency & Best Way to Get Money
The main unit of currency is the dong (VND), which comes in notes ranging from 200 to 500,000. For current currency-conversion figures, visit www.xe.com or www.oanda.com. U.S. dollars also are widely accepted. Carry plenty of ones and fives to buy bargains for souvenirs (if you use larger bills, your change may be in dongs). There are ATMs at branches of Vietcombank in Da Nang, Hue, and Hoi An. So you should have cash before taking your da nang hoi an shore excursions tour.
