World-wide quality of living survey (April, 2007) Top 20 cities by Mercer Human Resource Consulting Danang travel, Danang tours, Danang city tour - Impress Travel Danang travel tours While most tourists neglect Vietnam’s fourth-largest city in favour of nearby Hue and Hoi An, Danang has considerable charm in its own right. The economic powerhouse of central Vietnam, it combines the buzz of a bigger city with beautiful beaches and great restaurants. A lot of money has recently been poured into tree-lined boulevards, bridges and beachside resorts. Back in the heady days of the American War, Danang was referred to as the ‘Saigon of the North’. This held a note of both praise and condemnation: like its big southern sister, Danang was notable for its booming economy, fine restaurants, busy traffic and glittering shops. Entertaining the soldiers from the nearby American base was a profitable business – bars and prostitution were major industries, and that sleazy legacy lingers. http://www.danangtraveltour.com/ Ho Chi Minh city tour Ho Chi Minh city tour full day Tour summary: A holiday in Vietnam is not complete without a tour of Ho Chi Minh City.
