This Vietnamese city could be your next affordable beach getaway

<p dir="ltr">Those looking for an affordable beach getaway outside of Thailand and Bali may want to look to Da Nang, the city in central Vietnam enjoying rapid tourism growth.&nbsp;</p>
<p dir="ltr">One accommodation option is&nbsp;<a href="" target="_blank"><strong>Centara Sandy Beach Resort Danang</strong></a>, which recently underwent extensive renovations to welcome new premium ocean-view rooms and suites looking over the East Sea from the coast of Non Nuoc Beach.&nbsp;</p>
<p dir="ltr">The resort&#39;s also added Ginger &amp; Lime, a restaurant which serves up Thai, Vietnamese and Asian fusion dishes, as well as two poolside bars that whip up pizzas, gelato and Vietnamese street food to go with the drinks.&nbsp;</p>
<p dir="ltr">While Centara Sandy Beach is situated on a private beach, it is only 20 minutes away from Da Nang International Airport. Book a month in advance and you get up to 40 percent off the usual room rates, which start at around $132/night.&nbsp;There&#39;s also a complimentary shuttle service to the popular ancient town of Hoi An, a must-visit.&nbsp;</p>
<p dir="ltr">Direct Singapore-Da Nang flights in Aug-Sep are&nbsp;$900 on Singapore Airlines, or $368 with a stopover in Ho Chi Minh city on Vietnam Airlines, both in Sep.</p>
