This hill station west of Da Nang is the local favourite weekend retreat. It was founded in 1919 by the French. Since accommodation is not upscale, or even well organised, the best way to visit is on a day trip. And though you can drive up the mountain, it's MUCH better to take the funicular which rises 400 metres. You can board the cable car at the address given in the tips and warnings. You'll be clicking pics of the landscape every second.
The attraction is nothing like Vietnam itself. At the top, you'll find a replica French Provincial Town, a funicular railway that rises further up the mountain, a luge track that'll take you downhill again. Close to the 27 metre tall Shakyamuni statue is the Debay wine cellar. The 7-hectare Le Jardind'Amour is a lovely flower garden; check out the terraced spring area. Then there's Fantasy Park, based on the novels of Jules Verne. There's the Alpine Coaster, the only double spiral roller coaster track in the country.
Landmarks to check out:
LinhUng Pagoda, Linh Chua LinhTu Temple, LinhPhongTu Tower, the Campanile, the Tombstone Temple, the Ba Shrine, and the TruVuTraQuan.

I can understand why french build that resort on the mountain. The temperature up there is just perfect. I would say around 10 °C difference from the bottom to the top. Nice place to stay there 1 day. Better to go there in the morning , because usually it starts getting foggy around noon. Also nice place for families. They have a big fun park there for the kids.
The place is very beautiful, the European architectures are great. We have a pleasant experience riding cable car because the view is amazing. The weather on January is really cold&also have chance of rain. The theme park is okay but the outdoor activities are close down during winter. The restaurants also offer many choices of food.
I went at night so I can't comment on the entirety of the amusement park but even at night it was a great experience. The park was enchanting and genuinely made you feel as if you were in a different place. Originally we had come for the Golden Bridge but enjoyed the rest of the park just as much. If you go after around 4:00-5:00, you pay a cheaper price with buffet included (around 550000 dong for both instead of 700000 for just entry, I believe). The cable car was also a great experience. When we went at night, it was foggy and had a super eerie but enjoyable vibe. The buffet was decent. Not the best but definitely not the worst. They also have live music playing.
Absolutely breath taking views. A nice, clean, cool retreat from the city. A bit pricey but well worth the experience. Cable car ride was stunning and included in your fare and the Golden Bridge was a great bucket list check
We were really unsure what to expect here Absolutely everything about the place is 1st class and we highly recommend. Being skiers we are well used to cable cars but here the views were stunning and it went on. All of the buildings were incredibly realistic, including a church. Our ticket included food. The food was excellent and eat as much as you want. There was food there for everyone are you are spoilt for choice. We were unsure what the 100 games meant. This area is on a number of levels with various fun rides. The best bit was bumper cars you can actually bump!! There is lots more to say. Just go there you won't refit it. For us the day was too short, fabulous and great fun
