  • By Hoi from very good to reach by scooter and relaxed to drive. Can be combined well with the marble mountains and a beach in Da Nang. The landscape there is really nice and the Lady Buddha statue is also worth a visit. We have seen some monkeys, because they are wild animals you'd need both luck and some rest.
