Han Market

Going to this market at night or early morning will give you an understanding on food economics for the locals in Da Nang. This market is mostly food/ ingredients based, where the locals will come daily to get their daily needs. Whether they need the specific noodles for Mi Quang or their fresh morning glory bunch for the day, understanding how these ingredients are sourced and watching these changes take place is a really interesting way to experience Da Nang. 

An Thuong Night Market

  • Opening time: 6PM-11PM
  • Location: Near My Khe Beach 

An Thuong is known generally as the Western area of Da Nang. Many tourists/ expats reside here. Thus, the An Thuong market is usually found full of western activities and foods as well as being a great tourism location. Near My Khe Beach, An Thuong Night Market is a popular destination for both locals and tourists. This market is known for its laid-back atmosphere and diverse food options. Here, you can enjoy a variety of seafood dishes, barbecue, and traditional Vietnamese street food. The market also offers live music performances, creating a lively and enjoyable ambiance. An Thuong Night Market opens from 6:00 PM to 11:00 PM, making it the perfect spot for a late-night dinner by the beach. An Thuong is a sick spot to start a night out.

When visiting Da Nang’s night markets, it’s best to go in the evening when the markets are in full swing. The vibrant atmosphere, colourful lights, and aromatic street food create a truly immersive experience. Remember to bring cash as most vendors may not accept card payments. 

In addition to dining and markets, take the time to talk to the local vendors. They will often invite you for karaoke and a beer. Honestly, its how you learn so much about Vietnam and truly immerse yourself in local experiences. I’ve learnt so much by simply just being with people and listening. 

I hope I have given you a list of to do’s for your Da Nang adventures. Da Nang is such a niche place, I am truly passionate about the place and hope to see you round!!
