Asia Park

Asia Park is Da Nang‘s largest theme park and famous for its Sun Wheel and gorgeous night scene <3

Ba Na Hills

Ba Na Hills is just like the Kota Bunga or Puncak of Jakarta where it’s uphill with cooler-fresher air to breathe and a lot of green mountain and hills surrounding the area. Ba Na Hills is a spacious mountain resort accessible with cable cars where local and international tourists can go to spend a day trip to visit some of their famous sites such as the Le Jardin D’Amour or Love Garden, French Village, Wax Museum or stay overnight at the fancy and gorgeous Mercure Ba Na Hills at French Village – keep scrolling for the brief description on each sites.

Da Nang Dragon Bridge

The Dragon bridge is the city’s main icon and people can enjoy the dragon spitfire action which occurs every Sunday 9 PM local time, do come early as the bridge closes at 8:30 PM!

French Village

French Village is a gorgeous and highly photogenic man-made village located at Ba Na Hills and its rising fame is the reason why it’s packed with tourists strolling and taking pictures everywhere. I was fortunate to experience the village on its mistiest day and the brightest day! Both were just equally beautiful and I highly recommend making a stop here on your Ba Na Hills day trip (I honestly will recommend you to stay overnight here!), for details of my glorious days at French Village, read here.

Hot Spring Than Tai Da Nang

Hot spring Than Tai Da Nang

There is a very popular hot spring and pool site where visitors are more than welcome to experience the natural Mountain spring water – the water was so fresh that you can drink it (but not recommended) – there’s also a Japanese onsen site installed at the complex so you can definitely experience pretty much the same onsen experience like you probably had in Japan before. The hot spring also accomodates a luxurious family hotel if you’re planning to stay overnight with large hand-carve marble bathtub installed at each room. Rate for the hotel room starts from $65-$130 per night!

The Marble Mountains (Ngu Hanh Son)

Opening hours: 7 AM-5:30 PM
The Marble Mountains or Ngu Hanh Son is a cluster of five marble and limestone hills in the south of Da Nang, the marble mountains have several tunnels and caves inside it with Buddhist sanctuaries located inside. It’s also the perfect destination to go pamper your eyes and check out the a glimpse of Da Nang city’s landscape and colorful locals houses, it’s almost like Busan but not significant!

You can also find the Linh Ung pagoda and these dragon statues around the Marble Mountains complex. Shop for silk scarfs or Vietnamese farmer hats (Non La) as souvenirs!

Vietnam is a country which is quite popular as silk producer, you can easily find silk scarfs at local markets and purchase them as souvenirs, as for the guys, if you’re not so big with scarfs, you can definitely purchase the Vietnamese farmer hats which available in various sizes as cute souvenirs to take home.
