The Experience

The Hai Van pass connecting Hue to Da Nang city is undoubtedly one of the most impressively scenic hillside roads in Vietnam. With sudden curves and blind corners, and views that are sure to take your breath away, Hai Van is sure to satisfy your desire for adventure. This is your chance to get off-the-beaten-track with Onetrip on a tour that includes not just adventure, but culture, history and of course - food!


Detailed itinerary

7:30 AM FOR MOTORCYCLE / 8:00 AM FOR PRIVATE CAR AND SHARED MINIVAN

First thing’s first - and that’s breakfast! We will pick you up at your accommodation and drive you to our favorite spot so you can energize yourself. Once you are ready to go, we will begin following the coastal roads along My Khe beach, a popular tourist beach ranked by Forbes as one of the best in the world. As you enjoy the fresh sea breeze, you will get to see Linh Ung pagoda from afar - a colossal Lady Buddha statue standing at 67m high, facing the waves. Be amazed, but not too much, because what’s to come is even better!

The first destination on your itinerary will be Nam O village and here you will be able to learn from the villagers how to make the ubiquitous fish sauce found supplementing virtually every dish in Vietnam. Take this secret back home with you and show your friends and family! We will then ride on to a local fisherman’s temple where fishermen worship their ancestors. Take your time to observe them as they go on about their daily lives, depending on the sea to make a living. It is surely a calming sight.

From there, we will finally begin ascending up the steeped winding roads of the Hai Van pass, leaving behind amazing views of the bay as you enter mountainous terrain. Don’t worry, we can stop whenever you see a great photo opportunity - and there will be many! Take a few moments to yourself and take in the fresh breeze as you ride higher and higher through the serpentine roads. You will certainly feel alive and free! At the top, we will stop to see old war battlements and bunkers and learn about the fascinating history and strategic importance of the pass, and then continue on to the Lang Co lagoon where you will take a quick break. Up next is a beautiful waterfall or a secret beach on sunny days where you can jump in and get fresh after the long ride. A well-deserved Vietnamese lunch awaits you next to the lagoon. Fill up and then take a rest by the lagoon before it’s time to head back.

On the way back you will have two options - you can either carry on by motorcycle or you can take the shuttle bus which we recommend. The bus will drive you through the Hai Van Tunnel, which is the longest tunnel in Southeast Asia. Around 4:00 PM you will arrive back at your hotel with a story to share!


All-inclusive

Breakfast, drinks, and an awesome local lunch are included.


Important

Although the private car option is available, we recommend taking the motorcycle option as we think it is the best way to experience our Vietnamese culture. On a bike, we can stop whenever and wherever you want. The freedom is incomparable to anything else you've ever experienced.

For those with back problems or family with elderly or young children, then we recommend the private car option. Although, we have had a courageous 6-year old having a blast, loving every bit of the adventure.

We also have a minivan group tour option which can have up to 12 guests for a more social experience.

Please note that there is a 30% cancellation fee for any cancellation made less than 24 hours prior to the tour date since we have to book many services in advance. Otherwise, there is a 5% transaction fee for bookings that are canceled 24 hours prior to the departure in order to cover for transaction processing costs.

So glad we booked all of our tours in Da Nang with OneTrip. The organization is comprised of student based tour guides which is great if you’re a young adult or interested in tours where they don’t really stick to a script like other tour organizations. The students, Allan, Helen, Leo, Cassie and Le Van, spoke very good English and are very knowledgeable of each tour site. They also keep the tour more lively and interesting - asking us questions throughout the tour and answering with interesting facts. The City Tour is donation based but they do such a good job and you can tell they work hard so I recommend tipping them! My boyfriend and I even made friends with the tour guides and met them after the tour to hangout. I would recommend this company to anyone as they have motorbike options for singles and couples, as well as car and van options for bigger parties. If you need recommendations on other places to go in the city they will let you know as well!


Thank you Sang for an awesome day - went beyond the expectations. Leave it up to the good hands of their guides because they may surprise you each time you go. Will be back again for sure. Enjoy!


I am a true believer that only a local can show tourists the real flavor of the area. Harry, who grew up and still resides in Da Nang, was the ultimate tour guide. He was very enthusiastic and catered to my interests! If you book a tour make sure you request him - you won’t regret it!
