  • There is cave temples. That it amazes me as I always go to temple but never see one in cave. Very old way very lovely very Buddhist! It is so rainy yesterday. But a very pleasant experience still.  more »
  • It was a not-so-high low mountain that is the usual lack of exercise was a breathless schedule, Doug. Without guidance from the direction you want to go down as a completely different place box office looked suddenly was chasing a taxi. The correct way would be to future tourism seem to be convenient.

  • If you come to visit danang do not have to give up to see this site close to the Center but that is sending you in the Vietnamese jungle with pagoda and Buddha cool

  • It's nice. Not the best of Asia, but something nice and inexpensive to do in Danang. And they're right, the cave at point #10 on their map (see my picture) is the highlight. Also #5 is a fun climb to catch a view outside, but take care the marble can be slippery (I did it with sandals, but something with more grip is highly advised). Toilets are near #7.
  • Really beautiful place to visit - thankfully the mountain is no longer mined for marble, and is just a beautiful place to visit with many temples all over the mountain. You pay for the lift each way, or you can use the stairs for free. The only problem we had was with the people selling incense at one of the temples at the top of the mountain, one of the men was acting really inappropriately. They aren't actual employees there! Enjoy, take your time, there is a lot to see, I would allow at least 2 hours to see everything.
  • Breathtaking! Absolutely Breathtaking. This is one of my favourite places that I have visited so far. Unfortunately we didn't have lot of time to explore everything. I would've loved to stay longer. I recommend a full day of just exploring the temples and caves and Pagodas on the mountain. For me it was a very spiritual experience. I'd love to go again soon!!!
  • Marble Mountain has a huge elevator that takes everyone to the top.. there's a decent view of the town and shops below. A wheelchair can go about 50 feet before it turns into all steps. Don't pay for a ticket if your a chair user or have limited mobility. It's surrounded by shops at the bottom all selling the same statues and trinkets.
  • If you're visited other caves in Vietnam or Laos, then these caves here are not that special, do not expect too much just because they are hyped! But anyways worth a visit! Good views from the top. There is not everywhere a concrete path and the stones can be slippery, so wear good shoes!

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.
