My family and I just spent a day with My (pronounced “me”) and had an amazing time. My is an incredible host in her hometown of DaNang. Her smile is infectious and her English is near perfect. We visited the Ling Unh Pagoda at the end of the beach on Monkey Mountain (yes we saw some monkeys!). Then went into town for some coffee, the market, the Dragon and Love bridges and an early lunch (yummy Vietnamese pancakes!). Lunch for 5 with beers and sodas cost a total of $9 USD!!!
Then, we headed out to the marble mountains with beautiful views, mysterious caves, and more pagodas.
Next, we took an hour drive out to Ba Na Hills and Sunworld. You may think $35USD per person is expensive for Vietnam (it is), but I tell you – the cable car ride and the views by themselves are so worth it. This place is magical. On top of the mountain is a mini French Village – including a small Notre Dame. The views are like nothing I’ve seen before – and we travel often.
My was there with us all day leading the way – her energy and enthusiasm made a really long day with lots of walking seem like the funnest day of our trip. Thank you My for a wonderful day in DaNang!
