    Ba Na Hills Sunworld Wax Museum

    May 12, 2019 in Vietnam ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    We took a lot of pictures and videos here. Then we saw the entrance of the wax museum. In Ha Long we unfortunately skipped it, but now we simple had to visit it. We had to pay a small entrance fee (100,000 VND (0,40€) per person) and then we entered the world of the stars and the famous.Read more

    Ba Na Hills Sunworld Wax Museum

    Anneke wanted a picture together with the english royals and also together with John Travolta. There were so many stars to meet there. But we met them all in a short period of time. At least, it seemed so. Then we went on to find the 'golden bridge'.Read more

    Ba Na Hills Sunworld Golden Bridge

    May 12, 2019 in Vietnam ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    We reached the 'golden bridge'. Anneke was satisfied. Her dream too came true. But we were not the only ones who wanted to visit and take pictures of the bridge. It was rather crowded on the bridge and not so easy not to bump to another person. But it was worth while. We enjoyed it at full! From the bridge we could see in the distance a big white buddha statue also.Read more

    Ba Na Hills Sunworld

    May 12, 2019 in Vietnam ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    I don't know if it was because of the wine we drank or the nice food at the restaurant, but going down the stairs of the restaurant we heard nice music again and it made me and my sister make a little dance at the top of the stairs. A small music group below were making live music. A man with an accordeon played very good. The people all wanted to get on photo with him. We also took a video of it all. What a superbe day we enjoyed here! But we had to move onwards which meant downwards in our case. We took the cable car back to the entrance/exit of the park. We needed also to recharge our handy's because we took so many photos and videos. While recharching our handy's we could at the same time relax in the relaxing seats down below.Read more

    Ba Na Hills Disneyland Vietnamese style

    April 11, 2017 in Vietnam ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    Today we are off to Ba Na, a french village in the Ba Na Hills. Built by the french during their occupation to relieve them of the heat of vietnam as it is situated at 1487 metres.

    Interesting drive up with Quang providing some rather novel answers to our questions. Graeme asked about a large dam with a very large dam wall, asking what it was for. Quang's reply was, 'just a lake'.

    We asked why there were concrete stairs built up the cuttings along the roadway which were all concreted, to which h replied 'so that people can plant trees at the top"

    Both answers were crap. The dam is a major dam which Graeme later saw a doco about on tv, and the stairs were actual a water runoff from the concreted drain at the top of the cuttings. the stairs slow the water down as it runs off.........

    We also noticed that the driver, Hero, who could speak little english, kept hitting Quang in the side of the leg whenever we asked something. Quang was always on his phone and didnt seem interested in our questions.

    After a somewhat pathetic tour of the basics of Ba Na, 2 cable car rides, and a short cable train, Quang took us to lunch and ate lunch with us, not talking once. After lunch he walked us to our hotel and then left telling us he would meet us at the base of the hotel cable car in the morning, not at the hotel front desk??? Still no sign of my $20us refund......

    day will begin with departure for Ba Na. Ba Na is 1487 meters above sea level and known as
    the second Da Lat or Sapa of Viet Nam. Here, you can feel 4 seasons within a day; not many places can
    make this claim making it a must see on the tourist circuit. Upon arrival, you may be greeted by monkeys
    and beautiful panoramic views. Enjoy the stunning views of the the beautiful landscape while taking a
    ride to the top of Ba Na mountain in one of the longest cable cars in the world, then hop on the Hiking
    train to continue travelling in comfort. The Hiking Train transport tourists to several popular destinations
    including Linh Ung pagoda, Le Jardin garden and an ancient villa complex. We will visit Linh Ung
    pagoda, Tinh Tam garden, Nghinh Phong peak, Vong Nguyet hill, etc. We will then have lunch and
    go on a trail to the peak where you can view the sights of Da Nang city and the surrounding mountains.
    The night will finish with dinner and overnight in Ba

    While the cable car ride was interesting, the whole Ba Na Hills theme park was a little weird. Hotel was very average, and the food was well below expected. Certainly NOT a 4 star hotel. The only good thing was a coffee and cake in one of the shops.
