5. Da Nang, Vietnam Tired of regular mountains? How about marble peaks?

Lastminute.com reviewer Katheridb adds, "Beautiful city, did all of the sound of music sites. Weather was very varied - snow and torrential rain on the first day and freezing temperatures but then hot and sunny and needed sun cream on the last day! Be prepared for all! The view from the mountains is stunning. Food everywhere was delicious and all the people we met were very friendly and spoke excellent English !!"
