A mere one-hour, fifty-minute flight to Danang, Vietnam is one of the quickest destinations to get to from Hong Kong. Danang offers up beautiful beaches and fab resorts such as The Intercontinental Danang, but for a little more buzz, head to Hoi An. Just a 40-minute drive from Danang airport, enjoy the best of both worlds, by exploring the ancient town, staying in a cute boutique hotel, or a budget-friendly guesthouse and chilling at An Bang beach (with a coconut in hand!).
Be sure to try a cooking class, get some shoes made or clothes tailored, and most definitely eat as much food as you can! I highly recommend the banh mi from Banh Mi Phuong, it’ll change your view on the humble sandwich forever. I promise.
