Danang is a peaceful and well-organised city in the very center of Vietnam. Life here is simple, just like the way Danang people are: rustic, honest and sometimes rudely straight-forward.
Helen has recorded these videos during her trips back home in Danang and brings them overseas as a remedy to cure her homesickness. Through the featured beautiful moments, you can have a good sense of how a normal life in Danang is like. Hope you enjoy watching them 🙂
