Da Nang Airbnbs Main Banner

When we think of Vietnam, most of us recall that trip to Ho Chi Minh City or even Hanoi.

But what about Da Nang? The city by the coastline in central Vietnam offers some very impressive ocean views and that’s what we’re after in this week’s ‘Travel Thursday’ post.

Furthermore, they are priced very affordably.

Want to see it for yourself?

Read on.

From the moment you step into this modern 2-bedroom apartment, you will feel like you’re on permanent vacation. Large window frames give you a clear view of the stunning ocean and the iconic Son Tra mountain, while the minimalist decor creates a calm, tranquil oasis.

The fully equipped kitchen makes whipping up meals a breeze (if you choose to), and the 2 bathrooms ensure plenty of privacy. When you need to recharge, head to the infinity pool and gaze at the panorama for hours. The location can’t be beaten either, close to the 3D Museum of Art and easy to get to other Da Nang attractions.

With paid parking available and room for up to 4 guests, this apartment has everything you need for your next getaway.

Once you’re ready for adventure, explore the charms of Da Nang right at your doorstep. Mường Thanh Luxury Da Nang Hotel, right around the corner, provides easy access to atas dining, entertainment, and spa services.

Superbly rated rental apartment for up to 5 persons

Superbly rated rental apartment for up to 5 persons

Price: $47/night (for 4 persons); $58/night (for 5 persons)

Last but not least, we have this highly rated 2-bedroom apartment with all the comforts of home combined with gorgeous views of My Khe Beach and Son Tra Mountain.

With over 100 guest ratings and a near five-star rating, guests return time and time again for the apartment’s spacious layout, two bathrooms, and fully equipped kitchen with basic amenities. Located on the 29th floor of a residential tower, the rare 2-bedroom unit comfortably sleeps up to 5 guests with one double bed and one bunk bed.

Located about 5 km from Danang International Airport, this rental is easy to get to.

Can’t believe how rental is so cheap in Da Nang? We can’t believe it too. If you were to split the cost among your 4 or 5 travel companions, one person would pay only $10+ for a night on average. That’s insane. And that’s why you should hesitate no more and decide on your travel dates A.S.A.P. Money can make but bookings can’t wait. Grab your flight tickets and reserve your rooms today!


Travel Thursday: 4D3N Itinerary to Ho Chi Minh City at $440+/pax (flights + hotel + bus + tours)

4D3N Itinerary to Ho Chi Minh City Banner

Did you miss the last 3D2N itinerary to Surabaya, Indonesia for Vesak Day?

Prices might have changed but the itinerary still stands.

View it here: 

Travel Thursday: 3D2N Itinerary to Surabaya, Indonesia at $204.30/pax (flights + hotel + breakfast)

For this Travel Thursday series, we will still be eyeing the Vesak Day public holiday but this time around, you will probably need to take a day of leave on 5 June.

And we’re heading to Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC)!

Since Vesak Day falls on 2 June, a Friday, this itinerary’s prices will be based on research done for 2 June to 5 June 2023 (2-to-go):

  • Vietjet flights, round trip per pax: $198.90

SG to HCMC flights

  • Saigon Prince Hotel (deluxe double/twin): approx. $266 including taxes via Agoda ($133/pax)

Saigon Prince Hotel

This 4-star hotel located in District 1 of HCMC is one of the more atas options.

I’ve chosen this because, at the time of writing, all the other more affordable options in the range of $20 to $50/night are almost sold out.

You should be able to save much more if you book early so this hotel option is just a price reference point, yeah?

Also, this itinerary will be much more “relaxing” than the free & easy ones I’ve written earlier because we will be using a sightseeing bus to plan our trip and taking on a full-day tour for fuss-free sake.

Get ready to fork out $443.55/pax.

Prices reflected are accurate at the time of writing.
