It was on Da Nangs’ coast where the first US troops landed 8 March 65 in what we call the Vietnam war, and as the war progressed the airport’s runway was extended to become the longest in all of Southeast Asia.,

Da Nang fell to the Viet Cong in March 75, this signified South Vietnam’s defeat in the war, and despite it’s war torn history, Da Nang is one of the  most progressive cities taking advantage of new free market principles.
