One of the most attractive tourist spots in Da Nang, Ba Na Hills is a ride to a cultural and adventurous experience. Ba Na Hills is like the Disneyland of Da Nang offering Adventure Activities, Panoramic Views, Fantasy Park, Spiritual points and many more.

20 km from Da Nang, Ba Na Hills at the height of approximately 1500 m above the sea level is a heavenly place with spectacular climate all round the year. The only way to reach the top is through the cable car passing through the glimmering clouds, dense jungle and astonishing waterfalls.

My suggestion would be to keep 1 whole day for this place and enjoy each and everything because Ba Na Hills has a lot to offer.

Things to do in Ba Na Hills

1. World’s Longest Cable Car

Record braking cable car system of Ba Na Hills is one of the most remarkable cable car in the World. This international award-winning cable cars can accommodate approximately 7,000 people/hour.

The cable car ride to Ba Na Hills is the most scenic journey to the Chua Mountain peak which passes through cloudy peaks, dense jungle and mesmerizing waterfalls.

Well begun is half done! The cable car ride to reach the top of Ba Na Hills is so impressive that it sets the bar high.

2. French Village

Most loved destination in Ba Na Hills, French Village recreates an old fashioned and alluring form of a country France. French Village is lined with iconic landmarks of France like the Square, Old Village, famous Inns, Church etc.

In evening, when lights are ignited and the village is filled with dense fogs, this medieval castle type buildings brings out its alluring charm which is a treat to an eye.

For more experiences, you can stay overnight and enjoy this beautiful resort.

3. Golden Bridge

One of the most attractive spots in Ba Na Hills which came into highlights since the day it was opened. I think almost half of the tourists visiting Vietnam comes to Danang and Ba Na Hills just to see the Golden Bridge and its captivating charisma.

The footbridge is supported by two massive stones carved in the shape of hands which emerges from the dense forest. This makes it look like an ancient ruin which is nothing less than a fairytale.

The length of the bridge is approximately 150 meter giving you enough space to enjoy the scenic views of Da Nang. Make sure to visit this place during the clear sky to get a perfect photograph.

4. Alpine Coaster

Alpine Coaster, in a way, is like roller coaster with a difference that it is a single seater car equipped with hand brakes so that you can control your speed as per your convenience.

The only issue is when you want to fly with high speed but the person in front of you is on slow driving mode.

Pro Tip: The queue can be very long, so keep this as the 1st thing in your itinerary.

Despite the abundance of adventure activities, French Castle type buildings and amazing food joints, the local culture also has its own charming touch at this place.

A big white Shakyamuni status is the highlight of this place.
