We will depart from Hoi An in the morning and drive along the coastline to the historic Marble Mountain. Here, we can explore the caves and temples built right into the mountain and observe spectacular views of the expanding city of Da Nang and the famous Da Nang Beach. The tour will then continue along to the coast of Monkey Mountain, where the road climbs to Son Tra Quan Yin Goddess at Linh Ung.

 

Unveiled from July 2010 at Linh Ung – Bai But pagoda, Quan Am Statue and Linh Ung pagoda is known as one of the most significant pilgrimage destinations for Buddhists in Viet Nam, taking 6 years to build. There are many myths about this peninsula: one legend claims that fairies have often been observed landing on the top of Son Tra Mount to play chess.  

 

From here, you can take a look at the whole of Da Nang city and the bow-shaped seashore forming Da Nang Bay. Then, we visit Monkey Mountain Heliport Vestige. Built in 1965 by the US army, the Monkey Mountain Helicopter Port was a strategic site for supplies, accessing, and withdrawing to/from mountain-bases. At the height of 580m above sea level, Son Tra view tower offers panoramic views of Da Nang, Son Tra Beach and the lush green surrounding forest. Nearby, the Army Radar station dates back to the 1960s, considered “Indochina’s Miraculous Eyes”. From here one can see wonderful ocean views stretching as far as the eye can see.

 

After lunch, the tour continues along the north coast of Da Nang to the top of Hai Van Pass where bunkers leftover from the war can be explored. After coming down from Hai Van Pass, we turn inland and drive through some craftsman villages and rice paddies before returning to the hotel.
