In this article, I will share with you a cheap and fun 1-day Da Nang travel itinerary for your reference.
Danang 1 day tour itinerary
Since I only had 1 day in Da Nang, the team decided to try to fully explore the unique features of this tourist city. This time I decided to choose Son Tra Peninsula, swimming in My Khe beach. After swimming, explore Hoi An ancient town. Finally, return to Da Nang to explore the city with nightlife activities and enjoy Da Nang specialties. Please look forward to our exciting 1-day Da Nang travel itinerary.
Morning: Visit Son Tra Peninsula
6h: Rent a motorbike at your hotel to visit Son Tra Peninsula. Then go to breakfast to recharge for the long journey.
6:30: Eat Quang noodles – Da Nang specialty at Ba Vi Quang noodle shop. Address: 166 Le Dinh Duong Da Nang. Quang noodles here are priced from 30,000 to 55,000 VND/bowl. The restaurant’s signature dish is Noodles with frogs.
7:00: After breakfast, move up to visit Son Tra Peninsula. Combined with that is to explore Linh Ung Pagoda – a beautiful and sacred temple in Da Nang. Standing from that position, you will embrace the beauty of the mountains and the sea of the city.
8:30am – 9:30am: Visit the thousand-year-old Banyan tree. This is also a place right on Son Tra peninsula, so it is very convenient to move. The banyan tree is very large. Its roots only take 2-3 people to hug.
9h30 – 11h30: Continue to move to the peninsula to visit Ban Co Peak . This is the highlight of this journey. You should drive carefully. Ban Co Peak is the highest point of Son Tra peninsula. Standing on the top, you can see the whole city of Da Nang.
12h – 13h: After exploring all of Son Tra peninsula, the morning is over. At this point, the whole team is tired and hungry. So we decided to have lunch at the famous Banh Trang Cuon with Tran Pork at 4 Le Duan Street.
Afternoon: Swimming in My Khe beach – Hoi An
13h: Back to the hotel to rest and prepare for the afternoon journey
15:30: Swimming in My Khe Beach
My Khe Beach is in the top of the most attractive beaches on the planet voted by Forbes magazine (USA). This is the pride of the people of Da Nang. We were impressed by the rows of green coconut trees, clear blue water with white sand stretching far away.
16h30: Start moving to Hoi An Ancient Town. According to my experience, you should depart at about 16:30 pm to arrive in Hoi An at 5:30 pm is the most beautiful. At this time, in the old town, vehicles are completely banned, giving you the space to walk freely.
Coming to Hoi An ancient town, everywhere is a movie studio for you to live virtual. The ancient beauty with a bit of vintage style will help you have ‘stunner’ photos. Another interesting activity is releasing lanterns or walking around the Thu Bon river.

19h: Have dinner in Hoi An ancient town. Some specialties I ate in Hoi An:
- Banh mi Phuong: This is the most crowded banh mi shop in Hoi An that no one is unaware of. The price of bread is about 20,000 – 30,000 VND / loaf. The shop is always crowded, so when you buy, you have to wait in line for a bit.
- Hoi An Cao Lau: located right in Hoi An market for 35,000 VND/ bowl.
- Gourd: located right in the heart of the old town. Walk for a while and you will see people waiting in line. The price of water is 12,000/glass, but it’s very cool to drink and has a unique taste.
Most of the places I eat are located in the city and the old town. So it’s always very convenient for me to eat while exploring Hoi An ancient town.
20h30 : Return to Da Nang to explore the city at night.
Evening: Explore Da Nang at night
21h15 : I ran straight to the Dragon Bridge to watch the Dragon Bridge spit fire. Before going, I checked the schedule already. I was lucky enough to visit Da Nang on Saturday. Every Saturday night on the Dragon Bridge there is a fire and water spray show for the people of the city. And this is what I am very impressed with in this 1-day trip to Da Nang
22h: I go straight to Helio night market to shop, hang out and eat late at night. Helio night market is crowded and very famous in Da Nang. This place has everything you can buy. In particular, Helio night market has countless unique food stalls. After eating, I go for a walk in the night market because there is also a very funny music program.
23h30: End of Da Nang tour 1 day. Return to the hotel and rest.
