First established in 1919, Ba Na was built as a hill resort for the colonial French to escape the summer heat of Central Vietnam’s coast. From the original’s ruins, Ba Na was rebuilt into an eco resort and fantasy theme park starting 1998. It is still evolving today and for the second year running, Ba Na Hills has been awarded the title of ‘Vietnam’s Leading Resort’.
Lush ‘Sun World Ba Na Hills‘ is located in the Trường Sơn mountain range 36km west of the city of Da Nang centre and 65km from Hoi An. It is 1487m above sea level and offers refreshingly cool weather and stunning views in good weather. This is your opportunity to escape Da Nang city or Hoi An town for an exciting day in Ba Na Hills with our Private Guide to ensure you maximise your time.
We took a 9 hour trip to Ba Na Hills with Quan. He spoke great English, was knowledgeable about many topics, and was very professional. He patiently guided us through the entire park. The photo opportunities were spectacular– Client TripAdvisor Review
To make the most of your special day we meet early at your hotel lobby (08.00 in Hoi An or 08.30 in Da Nang) for your Private Ba Na Hills Tour, driving straight to Suoi Mo cable car station in our modern air conditioned vehicle. You’ll experience the stunning 20 minute ride above spectacular jungle and waterfalls on one of the world’s longest cable car systems – travelling about 5.7km. Remember to bring comfortable walking shoes and maybe an extra layer of clothes, when 36C in Da Nang it can be 15C on the mountain!
At the mountain top station you’ll discover a replica medieval French provincial town, a funicular railway to take you even higher and an exciting downhill alpine luge. There are gardens and lots to see, often singers & dancers perform. Mountain tracks lead to waterfalls and viewing points. Near the mountain top is Linh Ung Pagoda built 2004 with its giant 27m-high white seated Shakyakmuni Buddha statue – visible for miles around!
There are so many facilities for children of all ages in Fantasy Park. As well as some 90 free games you can walk in Fairy Forest, discover Dinosaur Park, conquer the heights with a 29m Free-Fall tower along with modern 3D, 4D and 5D movie systems.
From our experience, adults without children can spend a good half day exploring Ba Na Hill Resort with one of my teammates, while families are often happy to spend the whole day enjoying its many child-friendly attractions. And being a Private Tour we give you our undivided attention throughout your day so you see and experience all that the resort has to offer without wasting precious time. Of course, we ensure you are returned safely to your hotel in Da Nang or Hoi An at the end of your visit.
