How to come to Da Nang:
The closest airport is Da Nang International Airport, just few kilometers from the city centre (5-10 minutes by taxi).
You may also come to Da Nang by train, but it takes much time (for instance, about 10 hours from Hanoi). The Da Nang main railway station is located in the city centre.
