What to expect

The tour guide will pick you up at your hotel in Hoi An area heading to the Marble Mountains (Vietnamese: Ngu Hanh Son; literally "five elements mountains") is a popular sightseeing location in Da Nang because of its alluring beauty. Stone steps carved into the mountain lead to a Buddhist Pagoda. There are plenty of exercises as there are lots of steps; you can also discover stunning caves and enjoy the beautiful view from the top of the mountain. Upon arrival at the mountain, you will climb up the stone stairs and visit the caves and pagodas as well as admire the beautiful panoramic view.

Head down the mountain and visit the stone village where the skilled local sculptors create many marble products. The next visit will be Am Phu Cave where there is a replica of “Heaven and Hell”, eerie underground tunnels while listening to the clapping of bats' wings in the cave. Before returning to the hotel, you head to Linh Ung Pagoda. Built under the reign of King Minh Mang in the Nguyen Dynasty (the 19th century), legend has it a Buddhist statue drifted downstream to the area and got anchored at a sandy embankment. The local villagers thought it was a good sign, so they built up a small pagoda to worship the statue. From that day on, they said, the whole coastal region has been granted with good weather, no big storms or rough sea waves, while local fishermen harvesting good fishing.
