DHE (Da Nang/Hoi An expats) pronounced "The" is the website for everybody living in Da Nang/Hoi An area. It is a website that will be a centre point for information for either people already living in Da Nang/Hoi An. The website is completely free for members

The main objective of this website is to provide Information for everybody staying in the beautiful city of Da Nang/Hoi An and for anybody that is also visiting to get information from people already staying in these places

Everybody can use DHE, including locals who are willing to help visitors in Da Nang/Hoi An city by giving travel tips and adding cool spot to our yellow pages listing.

The D-Web-Design team of D-Software Technology are behind this project and will be maintaining this project website

The purpose of DHE is to have "information in a central point". That was the motivation exactly few months ago. We want everybody coming to Da Nang/Hoi An to have different information all in one spot. But we also have not visited all the places in Da Nang/Hoi An, that is where you come in.

Both locals and expats businesses both in Da Nang/Hoi An are to be added, If you visited a place and you find out they have good manager, or the food is a must-try for people yet to discover this place. Kindly put such place to our business listing.

We believe in equality, that is why our homepage shows random listing whenever you refresh it.

If you find out we missed a particular business category, please Contact Us.

We are just an IT Outsourcing company, so we probably don't know the law...fine...but we have good friends that always tell us No or Yes...Google.

The Only problem with using yellow pages is if we have it on our domain name,eg "danangyellowpages or hoianyellowpages" . This doesn't apply to all countries, some countries are allowed it to be used by various publishers. Please check WIKIPEDIA.  And other recent sources on Google.

Our domain name is ----> "http://dananghoianexpats.com/". Moreover ICANN wont allow anyone to use yellow page as a Top domain name...

Just like spot owners, you cant like or dislike your comment. Other people viewing your comment will give you a thumbs up or down on any comment you have written. We might add cool, funny emoticon in the near future, but now, you can use the LIKE & DISLIKE button

Why we allow reviews for everyone without restriction, we might be forced to filter out some reviews, example of such review is when you are angry with a western restaurant for serving you tasteless Vietnamese noodle, we will assume you have written a wrong review at the wrong spot and might hide such review or delete from the system.

We might verify some rare cases of review, not all...please take note...

A review with much dislike from a lot of trusted members might be brought down if verified to be a wrong review.

Yes, we love to hear what happened in details, from the waiting staff to the manager reaction and poor service. If you had a negative experience about a place. Its freedom of speech. You can go ahead and let the community knows about it too.

Every Authenticated User can write reviews on DHE on all listing on the yellow pages. If you have been to a particular spot and felt the urge to write a good review for them. go ahead and review such spot for other users to know what is trending.

If you visited a restaurant, its a nice way to tell others the special dish they should look out for. Users will give you a thumbs up or down on review spots.

Marketing your product or services is not a one way street, most especially when you have competitors. If you still want to stay above your competitors, DHE is another avenue to do so. A lot of big brands that have established business still keep advertising their products via different media, so you should do same. Note that the more you advertise, the more people believe in you and want to try you out, and the ball is in your court to keep them when they come around.

Putting your businesses on DHE is Free!!!!!

When we planned to work on this website, we believed there are more than a thousand coffee shops in Da Nang/Hoi An and other spots. Also you will agree with us that some nice people have written blogs or listing of some places, so we are have crawled some of this blogs, get pamphlets to get some popular spot that have been listed in the pages of internet, pamphlets, or travel guide. Some of our sources are:


Randy's Book Xchange  

Some pamphlets we came across include

Foreigner travel guide

Jordan McDonald (404 Image)

Some "Other Information" in all listing pages are picked from your different website "about Us". We extracted the attractive information from different website, also pictures are from individual website too.

If you need to edit, please write to us claim the spot and correct the error.


If we receive too much report on a spot, we might be forced to confirm the spot ourselves. If it doesn't exist in Da Nang/Hoi An...The spot will be like Pooof (That is another word for disappear)

When adding yellow pages listing, we might have problem pointing markers to the exact spot, so that is another reason it will be good for spot owner to register, send us an email to claim your spot as to correct this mistake and help your visitors find your place easily...

We have gotten information from different sources and add them to the website...Some of our information includes Pamphlet, Internet and travel guides..Please check some guides we used in the credit page.
