The top of the chessboard: an incomplete antique chess game that cannot be completed. The path to the Chess Board’s apex is winding and tortuous. The banyan tree on the outskirts of Dong Son Tra, discovered in 1771 and found by scientists to be about 800 years old in 2014, is regarded Vietnam’s giant tree, with a circumference of 10m, 26 sub-roots, and each root being 25m high.

The banyan tree has been around for thousands of years: there is another right turn on the route to the top of the chessboard to go to this old banyan tree’s home. Because the feature is placed at an altitude of 621m above sea level, and the radar can cover it, it functions as a giant eye with an observing radius of hundreds of kilometers.

Tien Sa Port: Tien Sa Port is Da Nang’s principal gateway to the East Sea, the most important location in the port system, and the largest container port in the entire Central region, with ongoing innovation and facility improvement.

Time to stay to explore 

According to the experience of Da Nang Tourism of Lily’s Travel, the most reasonable time to visit Da Nang is 3-4 days. If you have little time, you can go to Da Nang for 3 days and 2 nights to see the highlights of Da Thanh. However, traveling to Da Nang for 3 days and 2 nights is a bit urgent, but it is also okay because it is also a reason for you to return to Da Nang later.

If you have more time, you can choose a 4-day 3-night tour to extend the program and have more time to enjoy. Many tourists traveling to Da Nang are self-sufficient or want to stay more in Da Nang; they will choose the Da Nang tour for 5 days 4 nights. However, according to the experience of Rang, it should take less time because it will create a feeling of boredom. Anything just enough or less than a little will create a sense of “craving, “making your Da Nang tours more enjoyable.
