To the west of the city lies a majestic hill station and resort known as Ba Na Hills, offering visitors a cable car ride to explore the area. Here, you can find the stunning Golden Bridge, as featured in Microsoft Travel.

Ba Na Hills, located just 25 kilometers from downtown Da Nang, sits 1,400 meters above sea level and offers a wealth of luxurious resorts, thrilling theme parks, and exciting amusement facilities.

In 2018, the 150-metre-long Golden Bridge, designed to look like giant hands crafted from fiberglass and mesh wire, was constructed atop Ba Na Hills and quickly became one of the city’s most iconic tourist attractions.

Another leading attraction in the city are the majestic Marble Mountains, a cluster of five majestic marble and limestone hills boasting awe-inspiring pagodas on top and mysterious hidden caves with stunning Buddhist shrines.

Other destinations on the list include India’s Srinagar and Gangtok, China’s Huangshan and Lhasa, the Philippines’ Baguio, and Nepal’s Kathmandu.
