During the Vietnam War (1959–1975), the facility was known as Danang Air Base and was a major United States military base. The airport was expanded to 2,350 acres with two 10,000-foot (3,048 m) asphalt runways.

The terminal is opened on May 19 and ready to welcome visitors, especially delegates of APEC Summit 2017. The project was started on November 15, 2015 and is scheduled to be completed in May 2017. This is the big challenge that contractors have to complete the international passenger terminal in 18 months with a total floor area of 48,755 square meters, including two areas and other complex items. However, with the great efforts of all contractors, the project has been successfully complete in accordance with the investor requirements.

ATAD is proud to be the steel structure contractor of the project for structural steel frame and covering items. The project “Passenger Terminal – Danang International Airport” has three main components: an international passenger terminal, an overpass in front of the terminal and a parking area with a total investment of VND3.5 trillion (US$156 million). This is the first social investment project in the Vietnamese aviation sector. The main terminal has a total area of 48,000 m2. ATAD applied in the project a roofing solution characterized by steel space frame. From distance, the lounge roof structure with soft wavy shapes, whose design is inspired by seagulls, is highlighted under Danang’ sun.

Ho Chi Minh City – Saigon

Vietnam is an excellent destination with the two main metropolia are Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) and Vietnam capital Hanoi. The main district of Ho Chi Minh City, where tourists living are the old Saigon or district 1 (D1) which lies on 7.7 km². The Ho Chi Minh City - Tan Son Nhat Airport is only 8 kilometers north of District 1, a 30 minutes ride away from Saigon center. Lots of tourists and entrepreneurs live in the Saigon district 1 of this strategic location, where located main government agencies, embassies, hotels, as well as Saigon have many entertainment and recreational facilities such as shopping malls, cinema, bars, restaurants, etc. Thanks to the above, Saigon is called a city that never really sleeps. Business spaces on the street are divided among a number of people who offer different services, at different times of the day, both at night and in the day. Saigon can be found expats all over the world, making Saigon an ideal place to create new acquaintances and Saigon is probably the most realistic place for this.

An excellent tourist destination Saigon is full of contrast between tradition and modernity, poverty and wealth. Many buildings, especially in the center, were built during the colonial period. The city offers many historical sights, delicious food, and is an excellent shopping spot. It’s no surprise that Saigon exudes youthful, and inventive energy. This dynamic spirit shines through in quirky cafes, innovative cuisine, and boutiques. And when you need a breather from all that’s new and fabulous, it’s easy to find quiet moments in crumbling colonial buildings, museums, and art galleries, for instance.

Besides, the Ho Chi Minh city received its current name only in 1976. Saigon was the capital of the French colony of Cochinchina and later of the independent republic of South Vietnam, from 1955–75. On July 2, 1976, upon the formal establishment of the modern-day the new government renamed the city to Thanh pho Ho Chi Minh.

Vietnam best beaches

Find a best beach for your holiday in Muine

Planning a beach vacation? There was a time when tourists thinking about a holiday near a pristine beach and a crystal clear blue sea though ‘’Caribbean’’, ‘’South Pacific’’, perhaps islands in the Indian Ocean? They remain great destinations but in recent years, Vietnam has come to rival these places in many ways, and with the country having much more to offer than just a tranquil setting, a Vietnam beach holiday is worth serious consideration.

Vietnam has an extensive coastline, great lagoons, caves to explore and many idyllic offshore islands. It has resulted in a number of places developing good tourist infrastructure, and others still offering solitude for those that want it. A Vietnam beach break is also a great way to finish a holiday in the country, experiencing its history and culture as well as the natural environment on offer in places like Sapa in the Northern Highlands, and the Central Highlands around Dalat. It is something that the traditional beach destinations are unable to rival.

There is little doubt that Vietnam’s beaches are going to get busier. They have been promoted in films in recent years while word of mouth, with more and more tourists visiting the country each year, has certainly helped to increase the demand for a Vietnam beach holiday. Here are some of the best beaches in Vietnam to consider.

Typically, rainfall only comes in the form of showers so, to that extent, it possibly holds an advantage over the north when you think about a Vietnam beach holiday. The proximity of Ho Chi Minh City has meant that resorts in the South have developed more quickly.

  • Vung Tau is now quite crowded now with weekend breaks from the city a popular activity of locals.
  • Con Dao islands have an utterly unhurried ambiance. There are two traffic lights, but no work, a gas station, but close for lunch and only one road, so you no lost. Right to the airport or left to prisons and port. A cluster of 16 islets in the South China Sea, the Con Dao islands are 155 miles from Ho Chi Minh City. Only the main island, Con Son, is inhabited (its population is just 6,000), though the other islands can be visited.
  • Phu Quoc is an island off the coast of Cambodia in the Gulf of Thailand. Phu Quoc known for white-sand beaches and resorts.
  • My Khe Beach in Danang is clean and looking fantastic, very long and not so crowded, good for swimming and sunbathing. There are many options to stay ranging from budget hotels to luxurious ones. My Khe beach was popular for a break from hostilities for US Marines during the Vietnam War. It is now an ideal destination for the beach holiday in Vietnam.
  • Nha Trang has been nicknamed the ‘’Vietnamese Riviera’’ and one of the beaches close by is Doc Let Beach. Nha Trang is well known for its beaches and scuba diving. There are several resorts — such as Vinpearl, Diamond Bay and Ana Mandara — and amusement and water parks, in the city and on islands off the coast.
  • Lang Co beach near Hoi An has been listed among the best beaches in the world. Actually, Lang Co Bay is a famous area with imposing scenery, mountains and forests, clear blue sea and soft, white sand adjoins each other that many travelers to Vietnam in the past have missed the chance to view this hidden beauty.
  • Phan Thiet was formerly just a small fishing village and it is especially famous for its fish sauce (nuoc mam). Mui Ne beach is 20 kilometers from Phan Thiet and there are water sports for those not simply wanting to lie on the beach.

The climate in the north limits the safe time for a Vietnam beach holiday to the height of summer, July and August. However, Halong Bay is such a stunning place that it attracts tourists all year round. If the sun shines, you can lie on a beach if you like though there is so much else to see and do. Vietnam is attracting people from all over the world and the numbers are increasing all the time. The beaches were never the main reason why they used to come but such is their quality, they have now become another string to Vietnam’s bow. Bai Chay beach is probably the best beach option for those heading east from Ha Noi. The town of Bai Chay, along with Hong Gai, together are officially referred to as Ha Long City. Beach is huge and best for those who like to relax & enjoy the views.

Phu Quoc Vietnam’s Maldives

Take a summer trip to Vietnam's 'Maldives' Phu Quoc Island boasts sandy beaches, turquoise waters, historic relics, fresh seafood and more.

Phu Quoc Island boasts sandy beaches, turquoise waters, historic relics, fresh seafood and more. Lying on the southern coast off the Mekong Delta province of Kien Giang, Phu Quoc has become one of the top holiday destinations in Vietnam. Vietnam’s largest island has recently been named one of the most beautiful places in the country by U.S. news site CNN. However, the beach paradise has kept its best secrets awaiting to be discovered. With the summer vacation season calling, allow us to plan you a four-day trip to catch the best of the amazing island, dubbed ‘Vietnam’s Maldives’.

For a castaway-esque experience, head east to one of the oldest fishing villages on the glamorous island that lies just 20 kilometers to the south of Duong Dong Town, the capital of Phu Quoc. It is no exaggeration to call Ham Ninh a priceless jewel with pristine charm and beauty that has luckily escaped the tourism boom raging on Vietnam’s largest island. Locals still live in the same thatched houses and catch shrimp, fish, pearls and sea cucumbers to earn a living. Travel tip: Sunrise is the best time to stroll around Ham Ninh, and don’t forget to bring your camera with you to capture the best of the fishing village.

On the second day, wake up early to make your way to Sao Beach, one of the top beaches on Phu Quoc and dubbed as “crown jewel” of the pearl island by the U.K.’s Telegraph. From the downtown, hop in a taxi for around VND300,000 ($13) to get to the beach that boasts crystal blue water and stretches of soft white sand. A bit of advice: buy a package tour for VND550,000 ($24) per person for hands-on experience. The tour includes a 30-minute motorboat ride, snorkeling on the coral reef and squid-fishing at night.

Once branded “Hell on Earth” for its notorious jail, Phu Quoc Prison is living witness to the most horrifying scenes of oppression during wartime that has left mysterious and creepy stories behind. A tour here will render every heart heavy but will make your trip a lot more memorable. And don’t miss a chance to drop by Dinh Cau (Cau Temple), which is just 25 kilometers from the prison. Get lost and allow your breath to be taken away as the sun goes down over the shimmering water. Prepare to take your wallet with you for a night trip to the Phu Quoc night market, which has around 50 food stalls serving a wide range of Vietnamese seafood. It is a great place for anyone who wants to go out for a late bite.

Leaving the noisy downtown behind, pack up and head north around 20 kilometers to Ganh Dau Cape, one of the few inhabited and secluded gems on Phu Quoc. It would be a waste of a trip not to set foot on Ganh Dau and enjoy the fresh air and peaceful atmosphere. Tourism is not yet a popular term here, so services are still underdeveloped. Don’t expect a fancy world of restaurants and bars, but instead try little homestay facilities willing to treat you to exotic seafood dishes. After that, take a trek through the primitive forests in Phu Quoc National Park which is home to a rich variety of fauna and flora. If you have enough time, try to conquer Chua Mountain at a height of 565 meters above sea level, considered the roof of Phu Quoc.

It’s not difficult to find all the local specialties in markets on Phu Quoc. Among them are honey, pearls, fish sauce, pepper and Rose Myrtle wine.

If you’re a fan of straight-from-the-sea food, the best time to touch down in Phu Quoc Island is between May and November which is the fishing season. But if you wish to get a true taste of Phu Quoc’s culinary world, do not miss a noodle soup called “bun quay,” or stirred noodles, at the intersection of Tran Phu and Cach Mang Thang Tam, raw herring salad served with Phu Quoc’s fish sauce on Tran Hung Dao Street, and thick noodles with mackerel on Bach Dang Street. Plus, several famous restaurants in Phu Quoc that you should note down are Com Bac 123 on April 30 Street, Hello on Tran Hung Dao Street, and Quoc Anh on Bach Dang Street.

From Hanoi and Saigon, the best way to reach Phu Quoc, which was named among the top 10 destinations in Southeast Asia by the U.K. travel magazine Rough Guides, is flying. Vietnam Airlines and Vietjet Air have direct flights to Phu Quoc every day. Return tickets usually cost VND1 million ($44) from HCMC and VND2 million from Hanoi.

Phu Quoc International Airport stands around five kilometers (three miles) from the downtown. You can take a shuttle bus from the airport or call a cab to get into the town center. Those who start their trips from HCMC can also opt for a sleeper coach to Rach Gia or Ha Tien, and then take a high-speed boat. It takes six to eight hours by coach and costs from VND150,000 to VND190,000. High-speed boat tours are available at 8 a.m. and 8.45 a.m. every day with tickets priced at VND340,000 per person. A bit of advice: book your tickets in advance during the peak travel season to avoid higher costs. Once in town, you can hire motorbikes for VND120,000-150,000 per day or book a car for around VND750,000 per day if you’re traveling in a group of five to seven. You can ask your hotel or homestay to help you with this.

For accommodations, a number of four-star hotels and resorts scattered around Duong Dong Town, the capital of Phu Quoc, cost from VND1.5 million per night for two people. For cheaper options, take a look at the hotels on Nguyen Dinh Chieu, April 30 and Nguyen An Ninh streets, with prices ranging from VND300,000 to VND500,000 per night. Homestay services are also worth consideration. You can choose from D’Hotel, 9 Station Hotel and 88 Hilltop Hostel & Villa on Tran Hung Dao Street, and Cottage Village and Peace House along Tran Hung Dao Street. Prices range from VND150,000 to VND300,000 per night.

The best time to make a trip to Phu Quoc is between October and May, with the rain long gone and the sun shining down on crystal blue waters.  Avoid the crowds and beware of the heat and scorching sun. Phu Quoc is also home to other places of interest, including Nguyen Trung Truc Temple, Ho Quoc Pagoda, Khem Beach, Long Beach and the Rach Vem fishing village.
