Evening Tour to Ba Na Hills and the Golden Bridge
Ba Na Hills Sunworld Fantasy Park is one of the most popular destinations in Vietnam. It is unique because it holds a World Record for having the worlds longest and highest non-stop cable car. It has become insanely popular (thanks to Instagram!) after completion of the Gods Hands Bridge also known as the Golden Bridge. In this post you will find everything you need to know about the evening tour promotion to Ba Na Hills.
Ba Na Sunworld Special Evening Tour Promotion
The special promotion has been running since the beginning of 2019. The ticket costs 550k VND (or around £18) per person and includes a really amazing buffet, a voucher for 1l of beer or juice, free shuttle bus to Ba Na Hills and back to Da Nang and most importantly – access to all the areas of the fantasy and entertainment park. However, there is a catch!
The catch is that you can only enter Ba Na Hills Sunworld after 4pm. The first shuttle bus leaves at 3pm from Entrance to Sun World Danang Wonders, but you can also catch another one at 3:30pm. The bus from Ba Na Hills to Da Nang departs at 9:30pm and 10:30pm. Essentially, this means that your time in Ba Na Hills is very limited because the fantasy and entertainment park is only open until 7:00pm. If you were to take the first shuttle bus and enter the park at 4:00pm you would only have about two and a half hours at the fantasy park. Why two and a half and not three hours? Remember the longest and highest non-stop cable car I mentioned earlier? That’s why.
Note: Buy tickets at the Ba Na Sunworld Ticket office in Da Nang. Their address is 93 Nguyễn Văn Linh, Nam Dương, Hải Châu, Đà Nẵng 550000. Copy and paste that into your google maps and be careful when searching manually – for whatever reason there are two addresses on the same road at slightly different locations.
What about the Golden Bridge?
Now, most people want to see and take a picture of the famous Golden Bridge (which is a stop before the fantasy park and the French village) by the time it’s dark so things get even tighter. At this point you might be asking why I am talking so much about this Fantasy Park and why it is such a big deal. It’s the Golden Bridge that people go to see!
You are right and wrong at the same time. From our own experience, Golden Bridge is a must-see but it’s the fantasy park where all the fun happens. It has a lot of fun rides, loads of video games, 4-D and 5-D attractions and is just an amazing place to feel like a child once again! Visiting it in the evening is even cooler as there are very few people around and all the attractions are free for you to try without queuing! I can already hear your future you saying “if only I had more time here!”.
Tip: If you visit Ba Na Hills and Golden Bridge in the evening you will be at the Bridge during the “golden hour” which is when sun is still high enough for awesome light and great pictures and not low enough for your pictures to come out dark.
French Village and the Buffet
After having all the fun in the world at the fantasy park you are likely to leave the building when it is already dark. It kind of sucks but I would not write off visiting Ba Na Hills Sunworld in the evening just yet. The French Village in the dark is really beautiful. I would even go as far as saying that it looks BETTER at night. While walking around and taking photographs I thought to myself so many times that I am glad we took this special deal.
After a short walk in the village you are likely to start hearing your stomach rumbling and that is where those buffet vouchers come into play. The Beer Plaza is where the buffet takes place. Simply hand your vouchers at the door, pick up some plates and enjoy dinner. You can get 1l of beer or some juice inside as well. The choice of foods is great and there are live bands playing every night.
Departure – Shuttle Back to Da Nang
This is something really worth keeping in mind unless you want to sleep in the streets of the French Village (or, more likely a very expensive hotel room in Ba Na Hills).
Shuttle buses leave at 9:30pm and 10:30pm, however to catch those buses you MUST take the 9:00pm (or 10:00pm for the 10:30pm shuttle) cable-car back to the car park.
The bus will take around 45 minutes to get back to town and will drop you off at the same place where it picked you up which is
Sun World Danang Wonders.
Is the 550k Ba Na Hills evening tour worth it?
If you are happy with doing things a little quicker and want to save a bunch of money then my response is “absolutely yes”. A hotel or tour agency organized tour is likely to cost you around 1 million to 1.3 million VND per person which is more than double of what you pay for the Ba Na Hills evening tour. And the best thing – there will be no crowds and no queues in the evening. You will still have some people walking around but at least you won’t have a billion other people trying to take the same picture as you or get on the ride.
Tip: You can leave your motorcycle in the car park of Sun World Danang Wonders (pick-up location) for 5k VND. It will be open when you return.
If, on the other hand, you really want to take your time and have a relaxing day where everything is planned for your this might not be the best option. A hotel or agency organized tour might be a way to go although keep in mind they will have a schedule as well and are likely to push you to do things quicker than you might like.
Your third option would be to hire a private driver (very expensive) or rent and drive a scooter yourself (130k for scooter and around 40k VND for fuel which is reasonable). This way you will have all the flexibility in the world. Single entry ticket to Ba Na Hills Sunworld costs 700k but that does not include the buffet (and the transportation to Ba Na Hills and back to Da Nang).
