Every Friday and Saturday at 9 p.m., the dragon breathes fire and water toward the east.

Kids will enjoy the amusement park at the top of the hill with plenty of rides and a wax museum. Don't forget to take a panorama of the views of the East Sea and mountains. Nearby, you can also climb the 17-story high tower inside the Buddha Guanyin, the biggest in Vietnam.

Food and Dining
Vietnam has a plethora of choices when it comes to dining and Danang, unsurprisingly, specializes in seafood. Stop into Trung Phi BBQ for cheap eats, which include their famed barbecued oysters, shrimp, and octopus. They also serve beef and pork if you're not in the mood for seafood.

Regional specialties include Banh trang cuon thit heo, which is sliced pork, fresh veggies, and green bananas rolled with rice paper and served with dipping sauce. Locals keep coming back to the moderately-priced restaurant, Tran, which specializes in this as well as spring rolls served in its beautiful dining room with rustic wooden decor. Mi Quang 1A is the most famous shop to try Mi Quang, which are rice noodles with meat, shallots, garlic, fish sauce, and sometime eggs, chili peppers, and vegetables topped with rice crackers.

Another local favorite is Bun Cha Ca, a fish cake noodle soup served at many restaurants, including Bun Cha Ca 109 and Pho Xua.
