Hai Van Pass, Vietnam

4.2
#123 of 836 in Outdoors 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.

  • On our journey of hue to Hoi an we have crossed the cloud pass. Unfortunately, it was very rainy and eh very murky with us. It was almost so foggy on the cloud pass, thus the name fits already. However, for me, there was nothing special to see.

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.
