On the 6th day of our pleasant stay in Hoi An, we extended our motorbike rental for another day to see the Marble Mountain. We dare not take the bus again after the annoying incident which happened the last time we went to Da Nang.
You’ll know you’ve reached the place when you see the street with the stalls selling all kinds of marble figures. Buddha, dragons, tigers.. name it! Everything you can think of, made of marble. What do you expect? Welcome to Marble Mountain!
The entrance fee is 15,000 dong (US $.85). Be ready to climb cemented steps to see the caves and pagodas.
There were several vendors selling cold drinks if you get thirsty from your trek up the mountain. Thanks to sponsored concrete seats scattered all around, you can enjoy your drink and have a good rest too!
The temperature inside the cave drops a bit. A relief from the humid afternoon.
Buddhas were all over the place!
A panoramic view of Da Nang from the Marble Mountain reward the one who sweat it out.
We saw China Beach from afar so we decided to drive there to see the beautiful beach up close.
On the way to China Beach, here’s what we saw on the main road.. Cows! We have to stop to take photos.
We saw local men collecting seashells when we arrived China Beach. They sell it for 3,000 dong per can.
