Did not disappoint. Beautiful ancient town with lanterns everywhere. Very romantic to take a walk especially after the rain. A bit crowded with tourists. Took a day trip there from Da Nang and hired a driver for 500000 VND for entire day.

Absolutely gorgeous town. Lively with plenty of good restaurants and coffee shops. Had nice foot massage and boat ride on River in evening. One of the nicest places have ever visited. Remember to visit early evening though. Most places close around 10 pm
