Da Nang, Sun Group strive to turn Ba Na Hills into world destination

The People’s Committee of Da Nang and Sun Group are striving to build the Sun World Ba Na Hills into a global destination.

Ba Na belongs to Truong Son mountain range in Hoa Ninh commune, Hoa Vang district, 25km southwest of Da Nang. Its tourism centre is located at the top of Chua Mountain, 1,489m above sea level.

The Ba Na – Suoi Mo cable car system was put into operation on March 25, 2009. It won two Guinness World Records for being the longest one-line cable car service in the world at 5,042.62m and having the highest difference in height between the departure and destination points at 1,291.81m.

With 94 cabins, the system can serve 1,500 visitors per hour. The Ba Na Hills tourism site is known as an outlandish fairyland with a diverse floral system. The French village with ancient castles is how some imagine a miniature Paris looks.

The complex includes 10 flower gardens, a large amusement park and Debay Ancient Wine Cellar, a unique architectural work dug by the French deep into Ba Na Mountain.

The resort’s hotel, Mercure Danang French Village Ba Na Hills, consists of 20 high-class restaurants and hosts daily carnival shows.

The resort is perhaps best known for the Cau Vang (Golden Bridge), which opened in June 2018 and soon after it went viral, with images of the large hand sculpture holding the bridge spreading across the world.

Da Nang hopes to welcome 8.19 million visitors in 2019, including 3.19 million foreigners, a year-on-year rise of 6.9 percent and 11 percent, respectively.

The local tourism sector aims to gross 27.4 trillion VND (1.18 billion USD) in revenues, up 13.9 percent against the previous year.

In 2018, the city served 7.66 million holidaymakers, a year-on-year rise of 15.5 percent, including 2.87 million international tourists, a yearly increase of 23.3 percent. Total revenue collected from tourism activities was estimated at 24 trillion VND, an annual increase of 23.3 percent.
