Keep your eyes out for new hotels from well-known names, as Danang has been attracting some attention lately. Raffles has already broken ground on a new property, but high-end luxury takes time. The 150-room resort is scheduled to open in 2011. InterContinental also recently signed on to build their third property in Vietnam (the other two being in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh) in this up-and-coming beach town.

At My Khe Beach -- Just 3km (1 3/4 miles) from town across the large lagoon bridge, you'll find a few quiet, little hotels worth the escape on My Khe Beach. This stretch of sand is most popular as a local hangout, but it's got quite affordable accommodations.
