2. Geographical location
Han River, also known as Han Giang, is a large tributary from the upstream flowing into the sea. The river originates from the confluence of the river between Cam Le, Ngu Hanh Son and Hai Chau districts to Danang Bay, the bay bordering Hai Chau and Son Tra districts. This river flows from south to north and empties into the Eastern sea. Han Giang has a width of about 900-1200 m, a length of about 7.2 km, and an average depth of 4-5 m.
It is said that the river flowing through will never return, but this river still contains many heroic historical sediments. Han River originated from the story of the old days, when the vicious enemy crossed the sea, followed the river to occupy the city, the generation of Da Nang’s ancestors locked the estuary with iron chains to prevent the enemy ships from entering.
Deep in the bottom of the river are stories about history, about a land that has struggled hard, about those who fell in the war to protect the river, but many layers of Han River could not be covered. And every time the invaders occupied the border, the Han River swelled and surged; sweeping away the invading troops, then returning to the calm and peaceful as the beginning.

5. Han River – A river of beauty to be proud of
The river flows gently across the heart of the city, like a thin strip of silk squeezing on the inclined shoulder of the blue-spring young woman. It makes tourists come to this place to hang on and walk, the heart wishes to see it again.
In the early morning, the river is soft and gentle, just like the young woman wakes up in the white mist and the sunlight shines. At noon, the river is vibrant, healthy, in harmony with the vibrant beat of the city. Late in the afternoon, the river draped in the purple cloak of the sunset sky, becoming more sad, more taciturn. The evening is the most brilliant, gorgeous and beautiful time. The lights from the streets, billboards, as well as buildings on the river, shine brightly into the water; making the river become extraordinarily shimmering and luxurious.
