What to explore at Ba Na Hills?

There are 2 different routes by Cable car to the hilltop of Ba Na

The most common one : start from Suoi Mo Station, you will spend around 20 minutes trip on the 5042m long cable car system. Then you will stop at Ba Na station, go out , if you turn right, you can go to the balcony with amazing view of Danang city and the cable car system.

Then, if you want to visit the D’Amor Flower Gardens, you need to buy the funicular ticket, which is 70.000 VND ( 3,5 USD), enjoy 5 mins trip on the funicular to the top funicular station, where you can walk down and enjoy the beauty of different flower gardens.

They also offer the French Wine Cellar, great view from the good days, but the taste of wine is average, not really special.

Following the main road, you will go cross the checking place, where they make a colorless stamp on you hand (to make sure that you paid ticket at the bottom finucular station) you can see the big statue of Shakyamuni – 27m high made by concrete, then stept down to visit one of 3 Linh Ung pagoda in Danang at the height of 1400m . From here, you can walk through the gate to see the panoramic view back to Danang city.

If you don’t to try the funicular service, on the right side of that station, there is a road take you up to Linh Ung pagoda and the Shakyamuni statue, you can not go through the checking place without colorless stamp. It has many steps, and there are some trucks on the road. This way is just good for adventurers.

After visitting those places, you can take the train back, move to Debay station to get on another cable car system, spending 5 minutes on it to Morin Station. From there, you can follow the exit to the Fantasy Park, spending the relaxing time there, or find a food court and get some ernegy first.

There are 3 floors amusement park, and you get 5 free games there : bumper car, thrilling flyer, mirror house and jurasic park at 1st floor, 29m high drop and twist tower at the 3rd floor.You don’t need ticket, just keep in line and enjoy them !

Other games such as 4d, 5d movies, other video games require ticket or coin that you can by from the shops in every floors. Just out side of the jurasic park is the 300m long alpine coaster, which costs 100,000 vnd. Other expensive game here is the wax showroom, where you can se more than 30 statues of the celebrities.

Actually there is a short trekking to the top of the moutain ( 1487m). Due to the French Village works, so they close that trekking at the moment. But if you want to take many wonderful shots, from Morin station, you turn right to go to Morin Hotel, they have a watching tower there where you can be extremly stunned by the scenery. Or simply enjoy the moments with morin spa center that very close to the watching tower.

There are many places for your meal, like kazka restarant ( the wood bulding where the people serve BBQ lamp or pork in Kazka style, or other food vendors serve noodle soup, grilled sausage or chicken wings. The food here are not really expensive, but tastes average. So bring a snack will be a great solution. Otherwise, you can buy the buffet ticket – 180,000vnd and enjoy the buffet there, but it is almost crowded.

In the peak season ( from April to July) both cable car systems work ( Suoi mo – Bana ; Thac Toc Tien – Indochine) so if you have to take the Thac Toc Tien one ( new one) , you will go directly to the top of the mountain, then you can go down for visiting the funicular, pagoda, flower gardens and statue by Morin – Debay route ( when you go out from Indochine station, Morin station is on your left side) then, you can start your visiting there.

We travelled to ba na hill with a guide but you could do it on your own. We had our 2 children with us and all had a wonderful day from the cable car to the cultural aspects, beautiful views and theme park at the top. The whole day cost more than any other day we had in Vietnam but the memories are worth it. Restaurants are average but not terrible. I would definitely come to ba na hill next trip. There is so much to see in one day and would contemplate staying in the hotel for a night!

A splendiferous view from a cable car... As for the entertainment infrastructure, it'sabit chaotic, too many objects in consruction, though those that are already built, are really pretty.

Cable car up to the mountain top with amazing views. There are pagodas and temples and a mini theme park at the top. It's lovely and cool up there, 20deg in July, so there's no rush to come down. Go up the earlier the better to beat the crowds. This was by far the highlight of Danang for us and our children. Food is expensive up there, so to save a bit, bring water & snacks. We highly recommend Buffalo Tours, ask for Oanh (pronounced OING), English speaking and very funny and accommodating.

Nice views from the cable car. It's very relaxing on top with fresh, cool air and beautiful french structures. I don't find the gaming center very impressive though. If you want to visit the gardens and Debay wine cellar (70,000VND ticket), be sure to take the lower cable car (there are 2 from the ground) and visit them first before going onto the top of the hill. We did not visit them first and ended up not having enough time to see them. The place closes at 5:30pm. Also, make sure to check the cable time as it only run every 2 hours after 5pm.
