🎆 Retire Cheap in Vietnam - 02- Looking for a Secluded Da Nang Beach
We're in Da Nang Vietnam! We liked Da Nang Vietnam so much last time we're back and exploring new places. We heard about a secluded beach outside Da Nang that we are off to explore. I feel Vietnam has a lot to offer RIPpers (Retirees In Paradise) so they wouldn't get bored living in Da Nang. Today the secluded beach and the Danang Fireworks Festival!
During our trip we will contemplate the question, “what would life be like living in Vietnam as a retiree?” We will continue to see what the upsides and downsides are to living in a Communist country like Vietnam. Here is a little info about Da Nang.

Da Nang is the fifth most populated city in Vietnam and is the fifth largest city in Vietnam and one of the major port cities. With an area of 1,255.53 km² and a population of 951,700 as of 2011. Women make up 50.7% of Da Nang's population.
Situated on the coast of the Eastern Sea, it is the biggest city in Central Vietnam. Da Nang is the commercial and educational center of Central Vietnam, with a well-sheltered, easily accessible port; its location on the path of National Route 1A and the North–South Railway makes it a hub for transportation. The city was previously known as Tourane (or Turon) during French colonial rule.
The city's origins date back to the ancient kingdom of Champa, established in 192 AD. One of the first Europeans to visit Da Nang was Portuguese explorer António de Faria, who anchored in Đà Nẵng in 1535. Faria was one of the first Westerners to write about the area. Throughout the 17th and 18th centuries, French and Spanish traders and missionaries regularly made landfall at Hoi An, just south of Da Nang.
During the Republic of Vietnam, the city was home to a major air base that was used by both the South Vietnamese and United States air forces in the War in Vietnam. The base was considered one of the world's busiest airports during the war reaching an average of 2,595 air traffic operations daily, more than any other airport in the world at that time. The final U.S. ground combat operations in Vietnam ceased on 13 August 1972. After the US-withdrawal from the conflict, in the final stage of the conquering of South Vietnam by North Vietnam, Da Nang fell to the communist forces March 29/30, 1975.
Da Nang has a tropical monsoon climate with two seasons: a typhoon & wet season lasting from September through March and a dry season lasting from April through August. Temperatures are typically high, with an annual average of 25.9 °C (78.6 °F). Temperatures are highest between June and August (with daily highs averaging 33 to 34 °C (91 to 93 °F)), and lowest between December and February (highs averaging 24 to 25 °C (75 to 77 °F)). The annual average for humidity is 81%, with highs between October and December (reaching 84%) and lows between June and July (reaching 76–77%).
