I finally start writing my Vietnam tours review and it's been three days since I came back from my funny trip to Da Nang Vietnam. I think Vietnam is slightly underrated by the world, it might not be that glamorous country or ultra picturesque any way your head turns, but it's something beyond that. If you're a self-devoted foodie like me you're gonna love Vietnamese food (especially at Hoi An area where it's packed with street food), it's humble, cheap but extravagant on the flavors, such a freaking hidden gem! I am going to write more about the food on another post, and that's the Vietnam (Da Nang) travel guide that I am working on!
Ba Na Hills was a 45-minute car ride distance from Da Nang and the location was rather isolated in a glance. Ba Na Hills is located at the Truong Son Mountains at the west of Da Nang, 1487m above from the ground and often referred as the "climate pearl" of Vietnam! And because of this height, the best way to get to Ba Na Hills is by cable car.
Breath-taking views on the way to Ba Na Hills by cable car
Did I mention that the Ba Na Hills cable car currently holds the record for the longest cable car ride in the world with 5 KM distance from the starting point to the peak of French Village? I enjoyed every bit of it, along with the beautiful-misty natural scenery and eye candy mountain silhouettes, somewhat so medieval but GORGEOUS!
Arriving at the D'amour Garden (or Le Jardin D'amour) at Ba Na Hills Mountain Resort to spend a little time before taking another cable car ride to the French Village. The whole area consist of 9 gardens: Love Garden, Mystery Garden, Legendary Garden, Memory Garden, Heaven Garden, Grape Garden, Thought Garden Suoi Mo Garden and Sacred Garden. Of course I did not go to all the gardens due to the limited time, but I went to the main ones.
The Love Garden is truly one of the most beautiful places that I fall in love at first sight.
The Love Garden happened to be my favorite garden here, the area was filled with various beautiful and colorful fresh flowers and arranged accordingly to certain form and shapes almost Art Nouveau like. IT'S JUST GORGEOUS (as you can see from the pictures), and if my pictures can't do the justice, then you have to experience the beauty yourself, not to mention the perfect weather I've been raving on this entry simply added more excitement! It was actually starting to drizzle a bit but sometimes you just have to dance in the rain and seize the moment.
This place really made me feel like staying in a European countryside.
I remember the thrilling-gasp that I made right after arriving at this GORGEOUS village and saw the scene! French Village was such a beautiful realistic mini village/town like area which consist of a square (where the fountain was), a church, shops, eateries and hotels, the architecture of the buildings was highly inspired by the European buildings which normally dominated with stone and wood. As someone who has been to Europe before, the vibe was clearly there and even more thanks to the perfect cool air. The whole time I was in French Village, I felt more like being in London in a good way.
There are a lot of couples doing pre-wedding photoshoot there, if I were them I would definitely take advantage of the current situation as well, you got a beautiful backdrop and natural misty surrounding.
Gosh this place makes me feel genuinely happy. You know one of those moments in your life when you have this happiness in your heart and when you look at the beautiful nature you're just grateful that you're in that moment. I mean I am grateful for my life everyday, but this was just an exceptional experience. I just like this kind of place and I don't always need to explain why.
However, Da Nang has more than just Ba Na Hills or Linh Ung pagoda. If you want to find more interesting tours, get to know about it where I showed you everywhere you need to go and to do in Da Nang.
I believe that right after you’ve done reading about it, you won’t be able to wait anymore for a real trip to this tourist attraction.
