[Danang] Slow Living

It feels great to take a few days off to experience some slow living in Vietnam.

Naman Retreat is definitely the right accommodation choice – we absolutely love the bamboo-centric architecture.

Take a walk


Play chess


Attend pottery class


Smoke some shisha


Eat delicious seafood
