What is Ba Na Hills?

Located approximately 23 km away from downtown Da Nang City, SunWorld Ba Na Hills is one of the best amusement parks in Vietnam.

This is not only because of its wide variety of activities, but also the cool-all-year climate and spectacular surrounding landscapes.

There are also lots of festivals featuring special performances, with incredibly talented singers and dancers. 

I particularly love the European style architecture and beautiful gardens, and enjoy going there every year. 

The park opens daily from 7 am to 10 pm.

What to see in Ba Na Hills Da Nang?

Golden Bridge Ba Na Hills

The image of a yellow bridge supported by giant hands only appeared on social networks not long ago but immediately attracted the community.

Located in the middle of the mountain, Golden Bridge Ba Na Hills is designed to look soft and charming, with the entire bridge covered with a magnificent yellow.

From a distance, the bridge is like a silk strip floating in white clouds. What makes the bridge more special is the large supporting hand.

Standing on the bridge, a majestic natural landscape will appear in front of you with white clouds and mountains.

Ba Na Hills Debay Ancient Wine Cellar

A look from the inside of Debay Ancient Wine Cellar. You can also taste wine here.

The French discovered the Ba Na Hills area and built several works such as hotels, swimming pools, etc.

However, everything was mostly destroyed during the war, and only Debay Ancient Wine Cellar was left. This place was built by French architects and was dug deep inside the mountain in 1923.

 

Ba Na Hills French Village

After visiting Debay Ancient Wine Cellar, you can take a short cable ride to the top of the mountain. You can enjoy the lunch at any restaurants, then start exploring the French village.

It gets quite dark around 4 pm

The village is not too big, so spending 30 mins to 1 hour is usually enough to wander around. There are free performances on the stages daily, so don’t miss them!

 

Ba Na Hills Fantasy Park

These games are free to play!

After visiting the French village, you should visit the amusement park. There are three underground floors for games, and they are always crowded. There are lots of free games, but the queue is very long to get in.

 

Ba Na Hills Tour

Besides exploring Ba Na Hills on your own, you can join Ba Na Hills tour. A tour normally includes:

  • Transfers and transportation as per description
  • Entrance fees
  • Cable car ride
  • Lunch
  • Bottled water
  • English-speaking tour guide (other languages available on request)
  • Travel insurance

Below are the reviews from the tour I took:

Good points:

  • Do not need to line up to buy a ticket
  • Know the way to get to the fastest cable car
  • Save money
  • Lunch is included

Bad points:

  • Transportation: Because it was a tour, the bus driver drove around the city to pick up all the passengers.
  • Limited time: You need to follow the time the tour guide listed.

In brief, having a tour guide is much easier if you go on vacation with your family. Also, it’s great if you’re traveling alone because you can meet other people and save transportation cost.

What to pack for Ba Na Hills?

Bring light:

Ba Na Hills is very large, and you will need to walk a lot when exploring the park in one or two days (depending on your stay), it’s better to bring light.

If the weather is not good, you should bring a compact umbrella.

Clothes:

Please prepare your clothes depending on the weather. Usually, in the cold season, the temperature in Ba Na Hills will be colder than the city’s one, and the difference is about 7-8 degrees C.

Even in the summertime (June to August), the changes in temperature may make you feel cold or uncomfortable, so it’s better to bring a light coat or jacket.

Even though the temperature is cool, you should bring suncream and a hat to protect your skin.

Wear comfortable shoes because you’ll need to walk a lot. Avoid wearing high heels or clogs.

 

Tips for enjoying the best of Ba Na Hills:

  • Ticket: You should book the Ba Na Hills ticket in advance because the ticket line is very long.
  • Food: You should have breakfast first at the hotel before your departure. Purchase the buffet when booking your ticket.
  • Time: It’s better to get there early from 8 am. It helps shorten the time waiting for the cable cars.
  • Don’t go during the Vietnamese national holidays: It’s full of tourist. There are 10 000 – 20 000 people per day, so you will be stuck in the flow of people and cannot enjoy anything.

 

Is Ba Na Hills worth a visit?

Locals say if you haven’t visited Ba Na Hills, you haven’t visited Da Nang. However, if you are familiar with Europe and want something different, Ba Na Hills maybe not your cup of tea.

If you want to see the mixture between European architecture and Vietnamese temple, also hiding from the hot of Vietnam, don’t hesitate and go!

Hope you will have a great time at Ba Na Hills :)
