    Ba Na Hills/Golden Bridge

    March 28, 2019 in Vietnam ⋅ ☀️ 34 °C

    Haben uns heute wiedermal zwei Motorbikes geliehen und sind in die Ba Na Hills gefahren.

    Die haben hier einen Riesen Vergnügungspark mitten in den Berg gebaut. Aber die Brücke hier ist einfach das geilste.

    Eine Reise wert, alleine die Fahrt mit der Seilbahn!

    Ling Ung Pagoda and Golden Bridge

    April 19, 2019 in Vietnam ⋅ 🌧 33 °C

    Second stop on the cable line was Ling Ung Pagoda, home to a 98-foot (30-meter) Buddha statue that is nestled in the mountain clouds. We then walked across the Golden Bridge, the giant hands were quite amazing. A stroll through Le Jardin d'Amour, where local flowers flourish in the mountain climate, was really pretty.Read more

    Trip to the Golden Bridge Part 1

    October 14, 2019 in Vietnam ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Everyone in our group had elected to do this Optional Tour. We weren’t really sure what this was all about. The area used to be used by the French as a holiday destination. They had villas and wine cellars etc. It was abandoned by the French when the war broke out and was then used by the Viet Minh army and was bombed by the Americans.
    So it was in ruins.

    Then someone had the idea of making it into a tourist destination and built a pedestrian bridge that looks like it goes through the cloud and is supported by 2 giant hands. Then they built a mini Disneyland at the very top of the mountain. To get the people there they have built the longest cable car.

    The area was about a 1 hour 15minute bus ride out of Hoi An and west of Danang. First we took a cable car to the Golden Bridge area. It was covered in cloud and mist as described it was meant to be!.

    Road trip - Banana Hills

    March 29, 2019 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    Having pre-booked our day trip to the ba na hills.
    We rush to get ready and have breakfast before the bus arrival.
    Once on the bus, we are requested to introduced ourselves as the tour guide continues to collect fee's and signatures.

    Our tour guide seems knowledgeable as he explains and discuss some interesting facts about vietnam and the discovery of Ba Na Hills by the French.

    Stopping at our destination, we are requested to follow our tour guide as this location is big and one could get easily distracted and lost.

    Having some time per tourist stop for photos, we make the most of it.

    Having to take a cable car to the top of the hill, this was welcomed by views of waterfalls and vast forests.

    Having a glimpse at the much anticipated golden bridge, we get off the gondola to find 100's of peole left and right on this narrow bridge walkway, from umbrellas hitting you in the face, to people pushing you out the way. We try and get to a viewpoint and photo point as this is nothing like the photos we saw on social media from people being alone on the bridge.

    Spending a good 20 - 40min on the bridge for photos and foot traffic, we get disconnected from our tour group but make our way to the next attratction hoping to locate them again.

    Seeing that our guide waited for us we were relieved.
    Making our way through raindow walkways, and colourful gardens, it easy to get distracted.

    A well deserved buffet lunch supplied many varieties of food and treats from pho soups to bbq meats and deep fried dumplings. Not ashamed to admit, but I was truly satisfied.

    Trying to walk off the food shame, we head to the French village for musicals and architectural buildings.

    Having spend all our free time on sightseeing, its time to make our way back to the meet up place and walk back to the bus, as it started to rain.

    What a great and long day. Good company, good food and good experience.

    Ba Na Hills Sunworld

    May 12, 2019 in Vietnam ⋅ ☀️ 31 °C

    A few last pictures and then we left the park. At 14:00 we had to meet our taxi driver again at the parking lot. And he was on time, but it was not the taxi driver who brought us here, he did send his brother. However, we went back to the hotel to pick up our suitcases. We had also planned to go to Hue but at the hotel they told us that it took some time to get there and by then it would become dark. So we changed our plans and prepared to go to the airport for our last domestic flight.Read more
