Apart from its great beaches and beautiful landscapes, Da Nang boasts the Non Nuoc Stone Carving Village, which is a typical and unique craft village to the south of the city.

On the Son Tra Peninsula in Da Nang stands a 67 meter statue of the Bodhisattva of Mercy, otherwise known as Lady Buddha. The statue construction has been recognized as the highest Bodhisattva of Mercy statue nationwide. It is 17 meters in diameter and has 17 floors. Each floor worships a different Buddha.
