Detailed tour description
Your tour guide will meet you at the agreed meeting point and you will make your way on today’s shore excursion around Chan May.
The famous marble mountains consist of five imposing marble and limestone mountains, which protrude up to 328ft from the plain. They are named after the five elements (water, metal, wood, fire and earth) and the most famous attraction in the area. They are riddled with caves and tunnels and are rich in marble. Also, on your shore excursion to the natural beauties of Vietnam, the stop here is an absolute must.
On the way up the paths, adventurous stone staircases lead along numerous pagodas and caves to a Buddhist pagoda. Once at the top of the fascinating hill group, there is a spectacular cave worth exploring. From the upper platform, you will have a great view of the other mountains and the sea.
Once you have left the Marble Mountains, you will head to the 60-square-kilometer Son Tra Peninsula. Here the sea, the beach and the mountains come together to create a beautiful overall picture. The highest point of the peninsula rises 2274ft above the sea level.
On the peninsula, visit the Linh Ung Pagoda, the largest and most extensive pagoda in the region. The most impressive feature of these mighty paddlers is the huge and absolutely remarkable statue of Guanyin, the Buddhist goddess of grace. It clearly dominates the picture of the Son Tra peninsula with its 220ft height. From the padge you will have a stunning view of the city of Da Nang and the arched shore that forms Da Nang Bay. Keep your camera ready for this impressive view.
Afterwards, you will take your excursion vehicle back to your cruise ship.
