The rainy season is the low tourist season in Da Nang, so visitors can easily book flight tickets at good times or choose quality rooms at cheaper prices.

Where to go in Da Nang when it rains? You can visit the 3D museum when you come to Da Nang. While traditional museums do not allow visitors to touch artifacts, the 3D Painting Museum allows visitors to touch and feel artifacts freely. In particular, in addition to admiring and exploring 3D paintings, visitors can participate and interact to create unique 3D works of art. Because it is an indoor attraction, visiting the 3D museum on a rainy day does not affect the visitor experience.

If you like to see Da Nang on rainy days, or want to enjoy a romantic feeling, try walking on Dragon Bridge – the iconic structure of this coastal city. Dragon Bridge is located on Nguyen Van Linh Street across the Han River, connecting the Son Tra and Hai Chau districts of Da Nang City. True to its name, Dragon Bridge has a winding shape, simulating the image of a solid and majestic Oriental golden dragon.
