The eco-tourist attraction complex of Ba Na Hills – Mo Stream – Ba Na Hills is located on Ba Na Mountain at An Son Village, Hoa Ninh commune, Hoa Vang district, Danang city.

According to the historical record, Ba Na was first found by Marin Debay Captain in April 1901 when being assigned with the task of looking for a place with cool climate to build a resort for the French coming to the Central Region of Vietnam.

Under the rule of the French colony, Ba Na was set up to become a resort with sufficient tourism services including hotels, restaurants, bakery, laundry store and so on serving mainly for the French high level officials at that time.

Undergoing many ups and downs of the history, Ba Na gradually became the ruin. It was then recovered but failed. It was not until 1998, Ba Na tourist attraction was officially opened for tourists from all the regions nationwide.

At present, the ecotourism attraction of Ba Na Hills – Mo Stream is a large area includes the world’s longest single cable car system of 5801 m; the French architecture town; campsite, farm with the tea hills; 5 stars hotel; villas; flower gardens; wine tunnel; wax statues areas; church and so on with impressive architecture from Europe and Asia.

One of the attractive features of Ba Na Hills is not only the eye catching architectural constructions and entertainment centers, but also the 4 season – climate in one day. Morning, midday, afternoon and night are respectively spring, summer, autumn and winter. Ba Na is also considered Da Lat in the Central Region due to the fact that the whole large area are sparkling with lush trees when the sun shines and while in sunset, dew shall be brought by the wind to come to make the area attractive in a romantic way.

With the super favorable and pleasant climate, it is not difficult to understand why so many people from various regions and nations have been rushing to Ba Na Hills for their holiday. Thus, one of the suggestions for people who are not interested in the bustle area is to avoid visiting Ba Na Hills at weekend or holiday time, unless, you shall be disappointed for seeing only people and people. In that situation, you may not be excited any more the take a photo, admiring a gorgeous landscape or just enjoy the fresh air.

Ba Na Hills is an ideal place for the family trip as Vietnam Family Holidays. Customized your family trip more with us.

In my opinion, it is better to visit Ba Na one time to satisfy the curiosity and excitement. It is good if I have chance to come back Ba Na, but if I have a choice, I will chose to visit other places that I have not yet come to or those which I always want to come back.

You can have a whole day to visit Ba Na or have a campsite there to stay for several days to visit and entertain as well as taking photos as much as you want. I was impressed by the natural landscapes here at new dawn and sunset.

Coming to Ba Na at a weekend of May, you will find a special climate of continuous sunny and gloomy. It is hot when the sun shines and it shall immediately cold when the dark come with lots of mist.

One of the very unique service is climbing to the mountain on train to visit the attractions of Linh Ung Pagoda, Le Jardin flower garden, the ancient villa complex in luxury and modern European design on the route.

From the first days of June 2018, tourists are crazy with a new symbol of Da Nang, which was built at Ba Na Hills. A bridge in cloud named “Cau Vang” or Golden Bridge. Both of Vietnamese and foreigners loves taking some selfie pictures with Golden Bridge. Do not miss this attraction when you visit Da Nang.

Noted for your lunch: The foods in Ba Na Hills is quite expensive. So, if you want to save your pocket, you should bring some foods or enjoy a buffet lunch. I did a buffet lunch with price around 190,000 VND (~ 8.5 USD). This meal was not too delicious but it was easy to taste and to be full.
