Lying 30km North of Danang, Lang Co Beach is the perfect pit stop on the way to the ancient city of Hue. It is considered one of the most pristine beaches in the world, with an incredible ecosystem. The beach is close to the picturesque Hai Van Pass travel route, and boasts naturally warm water temperatures. The green mountain ranges provide the perfect backdrop for a relaxing day at this beach.
Hai Van Pass is a picturesque mountain pass along the South China Sea. It is a popular route for tourists travelling between the city of Danang, and the ancient city of Hue. The route has been described as one of the most beautiful coastal routes in the world. Scenic viewpoints are located along the pass, allowing visitors to witness a beautiful view of the ocean, and in some parts, the city of Danang.
We drove over the Hai Van pass which is a 21 km long mountain pass on National Route 1A in Vietnam. Its name refers to the mists that rise from the sea and sure enough some clouds started to roll in! At the top of the pass we stopped to explore an old military lookout used by the Americans during the war in Vietnam which was quite haunting to see all the bullet holes in the walls.
