What do I need to know about living in Da Nang?
When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Da Nang, they said:
"Learn at least some basic Vietnamese so that you can interact with people. Young adults and below usually speak some English but middle age and older rarely do. Check with a resident on what you might need to bring from home that can't be found here. Most things can be bought here or on a quick trip to HCMC but there are always some things that we miss from home," commented one expat who made the move to Da Nang.
