With a stunning mountain view, Ba Na Hills has become a popular destination in Vietnam among the local as well as foreigners. Visiting Ba Na Hills, you not only enjoy nice landscape and great atmosphere but also participate in various entertainments.
The image of a yellow bridge supported by giant hands only appeared on social networks not long ago but immediately attracts the community.
Located in the middle of the mountain, the bridge is designed to look soft and charming, with the entire bridge covered with a magnificent yellow.
From the distance, the bridge is like a silk strip floating in white clouds. What makes the bridge more special is the huge supporting hand.
Standing on the bridge, a majestic natural landscape will appear in front of you with white clouds and mountains.
Located at the peak of Chua Mountain, the only way to reach Ba Na Hills is via cable car. Ba Na Hills’ cable car system is one of the most impressive ten cable car lines in all over the world, so it is an attraction itself.
The fee for cable car is already included in your ticket.
Le Jardin d’Amour
When you arrive at the station, take a walk to Le Jardin d’Amour to enjoy the beauty of flowers and statues.
There are various type of flowers in Le Jardin d’Amour

There are 3 Linh Ung temples in Da Nang, and you can find one here at 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 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 that, 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 looks like Europe, right?

It gets quite dark around 4 pm
The village is not too big, so 30 mins to 1 hour is usually enough to wander around. There are free performances on the stages daily, so don’t miss them!
The Fantasy Park
After visiting the French village, you should visit amusement park. There are 3 underground floors for games, and they are always crowded. There are lots of free games, but the queue is very long to get in. You can also enjoy the massages on the 2nd floor.
What to eat in Ba Na Hills?
There are plenty of restaurants and food stands in Ba Na Hills. Price for meals at Ba Na Hills depends on your choice of cuisine. Restaurants are priced from affordable to high-end (ranging from 50,000 VND / person – 350,000 VND / person).
-> You can buy ticket including entry fee and buffet with Klook
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.
Food: A lunch buffet was not good in my opinion. There were not many choices, and the dishes were not delicious. However, it depends on each tour because there are many restaurants.
In brief, having a tour guide is much easier if you go on a vacation with your family. However, if you want to have more freedom, it’s better to consider going alone. It was tiring for my family to go after the whole group and could not spend much time exploring.
Bring light: You need to walk a lot so it’s better to bring at least at you can.
Clothes: It’s not too cold on the top of Ba Na Hills, so you only need to bring a light coat or jacket.
Shoes: You should wear comfortable shoes or slippers because you’ll need to walk a lot.
Ticket: You should book the ticket in advance because the ticket line is very long.
Time: It’s better to get there early from 8 am. It helps shorten the time waiting for the cable cars.
Don’t go in the summer or 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 may be 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 just go! After taking a tour, I recommend going alone to explore freely.
Hope you will have a great time at Ba Na Hills -:)
