    Ba Na Hills Resort

    The drive to this place was incredible purely for the unexpectedness of the scenery but the end result was definitely the suprise of the day. We were following a map which just showed walking trails and viewpoints and so as we crested the hill closing in on our destination we saw a huge wall that looked as though it had been taken out of medieval China but brand new with a car park full of cars, coaches and bikes next to it. We drove down and discovered it was a holiday park resort thing but that it was seemingly catered to Chinese people who wanted to experience Vietnam all in one place without travelling Vietnam as it had architecture, temples, activities & events from across the country and its history. All of it premeditated and designed. Bit of a shame really, we couldn't get in to the viewpoints or walks without paying so we just rode off again enjoying the spectacular view all around us.Read more
