1. Ho Hoa Trung

If you find yourself in Da Nang amidst the sweltering heat of early summer, immersing yourself in the extraordinary, refreshing natural scenery of Ho Hoa Trung would be an ideal choice, especially if you’re a nature lover and enjoy exploring.

The unique charm of Ho Hoa Trung lies in its surrounding artificial islands, resembling a prairie with lush green grasslands.

You can experience traditional wooden boat rides on the turquoise river in summer.

Hence, the lake still maintains its original pristine beauty, untouched by mass tourism.

If you have the time, prepare some food and drinks, and you’ll have an enjoyable journey reconnecting with nature. At night, you’ll feel the tranquility of Ho Hoa Trung even more, gazing towards the city, illuminated like a giant glow.
