TOUR INTRODUCTION

Starting point: La Siesta Resort & Spa

Da Nang is Vietnam’s fourth largest city, a major international gateway and port. The city originates from the ancient Champa kingdom.

Our tour introduces you to a few key sites and the city’s history. Highlights include Marble Mountains (Ngu Hanh Son) and either the Linh Ung Pagoda, which houses the Lady Buddha Da Nang statue or the Da Nang Museum of Cham Sculpture.

ITINERARY

Depart from the Resort by car traveling northwards. The first stop is to Marble Mountains. This is a famous pilgrimage site composed of a cluster of five marble and limestone hills named after the five natural elements of metal, wood, water, fire and earth. Climb up and discover many caves, pagodas, shrines and temples. The mountains are located in a coastal area renowned for stone cutting and sculpture, 10km south of Da Nang.

After Marble Mountains, you have a choice of visiting either the Linh Ung Pagoda or the Museum of Cham Sculpture.

Linh Ung Pagoda option. We continue northwards following the coastal road to the Son Tra Peninsula. Here we visit the gleaming white Lady Buddha Da Nang overlooking the city, the tallest Buddha statue in Vietnam, which is located inside the Linh Ung Pagoda. This is the famous Quan Am (Goddess of Mercy) statue, which faces the Eastern Sea. Linh Ung Pagoda occupies 12 hectares of land on Son Tra Mountain. It symbolizes belief and the nation and marks the development of Vietnamese Buddhism in the 21st century

Museum option. From Marble Mountains we continue north up the coastal road and then head westwards into Da Nang across the Han River. The Museum of Cham Sculpture opened in 1919 and was enlarged in 1936. The museum houses the world’s largest collection of Cham artifacts which was started by French archaeologists and experts from L’École Francaise d’Extrême Orient (EFEO). Some artefacts went overseas to Paris, others were taken to Hanoi and Saigon museums, while many typical objects were left in Da Nang.

We return to the Resort where the tour ends, in time for lunch.
