Danang City during the daytime and sunset – simply beautiful!

The heat of the day and the cool of the evening in Danang requires some beer drinking to be happy I think. Today I walked during the daytime over one bridge and back over the other. I stopped and took photographs on the other side of the Han River from my hotel and enjoyed the views of everything from a couple getting marriage or engagement photo’s done to just the pace of people and the beauty of the scenes I happened to find.

Danang is a pretty city folks. It has the Han River and then the ocean and beaches. I have not seen that part yet. Everything comes in time and my way of doing things is to walk gently to places, record them with the camera, and then plan out the following walks to see even more.

Today was good during the daytime and evening and I managed to capture both for your vicarious thrills. This has to be one of my favorite cities. I know, I know. I said that about Hanoi and Hue and Ho Chi Minh City. But this one really has this wonderful view with lights at night, bars and restaurants along the riverwalk catering to those that wish to indulge, and carts of street food all over. Then there are the horns honking and drivers almost daring you to cross the street. Of course, I do and dare them back. No one wants to hit a pedestrian but the motorbikes have their way on the streets and sidewalks. The best way is to just go and have it in your mind to cross the street no matter what. I have done this in every town and city in Vietnam.

So now, back in my lair and planning tomorrow in a completely different direction to a city park and then to see the downtown parts of Danang. No riverwalk tomorrow and evening views. I’ll leave them here for you all to see the beauty of an evening along the Han River.
