Jump into a jeep for the ultimate exploration of Da Nang and its surrounding sites. Cruise in rugged style on war-time roads, up mountain and through lush jungle, just as the American GIs did in this sturdy vehicle widely used during wartime Vietnam.
Drive along the coastline to the historic Marble Mountains, where we can explore the caves and temples built right into the mountain and observe spectacular views of the expanding city of Da Nang and the famous Da Nang Beach. Continue going to the coast of Monkey Mountain, where the road climbs to Son Tra Quan Yin Goddess at Son Tra Linh Ung Pagoda unveiled from July 2010. Then, we will visit Ban Co Peak, where you can take a look at the whole Da Nang city and the bow shaped seashore forming Da Nang Bay. Then, go to Monkey Mountain Heliport Vestige. Built in 1965 by the US army, the Monkey Mountain Helicopter Port was a strategic site for supplying accessing and withdrawing to/from the mountain–bases. At the height of 580 meters above the sea level, Son Tra view Tower offers panoramic views of Da Nang, Son Tra Beach and the lush green surrounding forest. Nearby stands the Army Radar station dated back from 1960s, considered as “Indochina’s Miraculous Eyes”.
After lunch, the tour continues along the North coast of Da Nang to the top of Hai Van Pass where bunkers remaining from the war can be explored and relax at Lang Co Beach.
