  • The visit is possible without a guide, if you go there with a taxi and agreed 2 hours wait. Weather permitting, the views are excellent. The site is well maintained, the statue impressively by the size. A visit is worthwhile in any case. Best time of day 16:00, 2 hours before closing

  • Must visit site in Da Nang. Ideally one-two hours is enough to look around the place. Calm with mesmerizing view from the top.  more »

Where to stay in Da Nang

Da Nang contains surprisingly abundant hotel options, despite its relatively low-key tourism. The rainiest season lasts from September to December, while the drier spring sees more travelers; still, you generally don't need to book a room very far in advance. A broad range of hostels for backpackers on budgets clusters near the beach and on the west side of the Han River. Spectacular resorts line the oceanfront, many offering private beach access, spa packages, water sports, and diving.
