The driver picked up on time because he could track the passengers' flight, when going out the door, he saw the driver with the name plate waiting, very easy to find. New car, clean, running smoothly. The driver will walk in to pick you up and then walk out to drive in, so while waiting for my tip, if you see the car with the VTS logo, wave to the driver to help save your search. I went from Da Nang airport to Hoi An so the car and driver from Hoi An came to pick me up. On the way, the driver also introduced some fun places in Hoi An and Da Nang, Central people were super enthusiastic, lovely already. Summary: Good service - Punctuality - Friendly Will also use the service when going to many other places.

When I arrived in Da Nang, I should have exchanged money, but when I contacted the driver, he waited for the time and drove me nicely. I was going to Hoi An right from the airport, so I was crazy because I changed money and the weather was hot, but it was comfortable without having to book and bargain in advance, and I was fortunate to have the driver wait.

I have used massage a lot in Vietnam, but this was my first time using herbal medicines like this one. The whole body was warm, so I was relieved a lot of tension, and it was nice that the massagers were kind. I had a cup of tea before the massage, and after the massage, the tea, some fruit, and seaweed soup were delicious. Of course, the price could be a little higher than the other massages, but it was still satisfactory so I didn't think it was a waste of money.

One hour before the event, a phone call will inform the boarding time, the service is very intimate! On Saturdays and Sundays, Dragon Bridge will spray water and fire. The boatman will lift the card number to watch the position, and good photos can be taken. In January 2021, the temperature in Da Nang will be around 18 degrees, which will not affect the river cruise activities.

Hoi An is an ancient town not far from Da Nang. There are ancient Japanese towns and ancient Chinese towns here. This time there is only enough time to visit ancient Japanese towns and take a boat trip. In addition, there is a must-visit attraction in Hoi An "Miyama" "Holy Land" is a world cultural heritage, known as Little Angkor, a visit is highly recommended.
