Hai Van Pass, Vietnam

4.2
#2 of 6 in Scenic Drive in Vietnam
Traverse Hai Van Pass, a 21 km (13 mi) long scenic route boasting vistas over lush misty hills, green valleys, and beach lagoons, some of which you might recognize from the Top Gear series. Along the way, see the small fishing village of Lang Co, a former leper colony and now a developed tourist destination. Stop to check out the old military bunkers, where you can also refresh with snacks, drinks, and exotic fruits. Don’t be surprised to see newly married couples climbing the ruins--couples often come to celebrate with photos overlooking the scene of foaming waves and sandy beaches. Plan your visit to Hai Van Pass and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Da Nang trip planner.

    Past 50 years my husband was there with the Mission of defending Danang we return to this special place in his memory. I was impressed with the beauty. The view from up there looking to Danang and the beaches. The impressive mountains green. A lot of history, memories. The Fort built by the French in 1950. The market of selling pearls cultivaras on farms. Super recommend you go over Hai Van Pass. Of 800 to 900 expense Über con round-trip to the hotel back through the tunnel.

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.
