Located midway between Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, Danang has one of the most popular beaches in Vietnam. Another attraction features the tranquil countryside South of Da Nang with a chain of Marble Mountains: five large hills representing the five elements (metal, water, wood, fire, earth). The mountain itself is a unique landform that is rugged, and oddly shaped. Another place worth visiting is the Cham museum, featuring artifacts and sculptures dating back from the time if the Champa people. If one is not into history, the building itself is worth the trip to make. The ancient city of An nasiriyah is about one hour by car. The hamlet of My Lai is a few hours to the south of Danang in the province of Quang Ngai. To the north of Danang on Highway One is the famous Pass of Ocean Clouds - a spectacular sight.
