After one year of waiting, Da Nang people have the opportunity to have the same eagerness to brilliant fireworks performances. Da Nang International Fireworks Competition 2015 will officially launched with the theme of "Da Nang - Symphony of Colors". This year’s International Fireworks Festival is expected to bring local people and visitors outstanding and splendid firework performances. The firework festival in Da Nang will take place in two consecutive nights of 28th and 29th of April 2015. The competition also started at the same time with the anniversary of Vietnam Southern Liberation and Labor Day. Therefore, the number of tourists in Vietnam tour packages coming to Da Nang sharply increases. There are many ideal places for tourists to admire wonderful fireworks performances created by reputable and professional teams coming from EU, US, Australia, Africa, and Asia – Vietnam team.
Like previous years’ competitions, the fireworks performances venue is at the eastern bank of Han River. To prepare for the event, Da Nang prepares 28,000 - seat bleachers. The number of seats is not enough to meet the demand of local people and visitors. The bleachers are opposite to the performing stage. From here, visitors can embrace everything of the festival. Sitting on the sidelines, in addition to enjoying the art fireworks performances, visitors can soak up in the fireworks performances and rhythms of music. Up until now, the number of ticket buyers is bigger and bigger. If wishing to own one, you be quick. Do not wait until the opening day to buy, as the ticket price will be definitely a cut-throat rate. It can be double, 5 times, or 10 times bigger than normal. Ticket price of the Da Nang Fireworks Festival fluctuates from 300,000 VND to 500,000 VND. However, to some locals and visitors could not buy tickets, there many ideal places to contemplate wonderful fireworks performances. That will be unforgettable memories in Da Nang tours during the days.
Han River has been one of the most famous attractions in Da Nang. The river is not just associated with daily life of local people but also a historical witness of the city. Tran Hung Dao Street running along the river is an ideal position to admire the outstanding and fireworks performances at a short distance. Here is also the place where bleachers are situated. If visitors have a chance to admire the fireworks performance from here, this will be a great ideal to see fireworks performances on water surface and in the sky. Apart from Tran Hung Dao Street, Bach Dang Street is another road running along the river. The distance from Bach Dang - Phan Dinh Phung T-junction to Le Van Duyet T-junction is seen as the most beautiful streets to enjoy fireworks festival at a short distance. Perhaps, during the festival, the long streets are occupied by a lot of local people and visitors. If choosing Bach Dang Street as the place of enjoying the competition, you should come early. Otherwise, visitors can hire a boat to travel on Han River to enjoy relaxation, cool breezes, and magnificent fireworks performances. Maybe, this is the view of the clearest and brightest fireworks. However, when on boat, you will not hear the musical melody of fireworks performances.
Bridges in Da Nang are also populous venues for visitors to come, wait, and immerse in the exciting atmosphere of the festival. Han River Bridge is one of the most famous ones in the city. Here is a favorable position to unique and splendid fireworks performances. However, to have a stand on Han River Bridge during the festival is a great challenge. It is the reason why many people come to the bridge so early in the afternoon, though the performances take place in the evening.
Meanwhile, Dragon Bridge, voted as the most beautiful bridge in Da Nang, connects Da Nang International Airport with the city's most popular beaches and the downtown area, so it does have a practical purpose. From Dragon Bridge, visitors will be overwhelmed by a series of fantastic fireworks performances. As it is a new and "hot" bridge, visitors have to come here early to reserve a stand before the competition.
If you do not want to leave your hotel early in the afternoon, you can drop by Thuan Phuoc Bridge. Thuan Phuoc Bridge is about 2km from Han River Bridge. It takes about 15 minutes to walk there. Standing on Thuan Phuoc Bridge is not too ideal to admire underwater fireworks performances. But you still can contemplate excellent high-distance fireworks shows. Compared with the above locations, watching fireworks on Thuan Phuoc Bridge brings the most comfort and less crowd, than on Han River Bridge or Dragon Bridge.
Linh Ung Pagoda is one of the most famous religious attractions in Da Nang and in religious Vietnam tours. The pagoda is quite far from the venue of this festival; thus, you might not admire the magnificent underwater fireworks shows. However, from the pagoda, you can contemplate the beauty of fireworks performances, but also the panoramic night view of the entire city. After that, you can enter the pagoda to visit and pray for the best wishes.
This is the “hottest” business time of coffee shops near Han River Bridge. Memory Restaurant next to the bank of Han River and near Han River Bridge owns a prime location to see the fireworks display. To have a wonderful place to enjoy the competition, you will spend about 500,000 VND. Besides, many cafés along Bach Dang Street are interesting places for tourists to enjoy drinks and fireworks performances. Yet, the price at the cafés will be much higher than the normal days.
