Later on, we will come and visit Linh Ung Pagoda that is holy place for the local people to come and pray. This big temple is very strong Chinese influence with all decorations of dragons and pretty bonsai trees around.

When we finish, we are off to Marble Mountains. So, this area has five marble mounts that symbolize for five Oriental elements of Water, Wood, Fire, Metal and Earth. Reaching the site, we take elevator to go up and wander off around the area and pay a visit to many Buddist temples and caves. The first is Linh Ung Pagoda and then Van Thong cave with pretty view of the beach. Following that is another visit to the most beautiful cave of Huyen Khong. Thus, this cave is so special with all natural landscape setting. In nice sunny days, the cave is amazing with all incense and smoke mixing up with sunlight. All create such a ideal site for visitors. Also, this one was a hiding place and temporary hospital for soldiers and local people in the war time. After that, we will come and walk up stairs to have the best view at river – watching tower. From here, you can grab the whole view of Marble district and also see Da Nang beautiful city from a far.

Finish up the site, we then walk back to the car and we will directly transfer you to Hoi An – the former trading town of Vietnam. Today, Hoi An is so charming and gorgeous with all lanterns,café, restaurants, bars and tailors.

On arrival, we then stroll around this lovely peaceful town and visit Fukien temple – the most typical Chinese architecture. The temple was built by Fukien community who lived in Hoi An and for them to come to honor their forefathers. Besides, lots of Chinese people came to pray to Goddess of the Seas in the old days. Nowadays, this spot becomes a sacred site for Hoi An people to come and worship for their best wishes. Following that, we are then off to Tan Ky ancient house which has the combination of Chinese, Vietnamese and Japanese architectures. This house is kind of tube home in Hoi An with 3 separate apartments: the front, the middle and the back. In the old times, people had to collect the goods from merchant boats in the rear and sold out in the front. Entering inside the house and listen to the host telling you the history of the place.

Upon finishing, we are heading to Japanese Bridge that becomes symbol for Hoi An people. The bridge was built over a canal that made easy walk way for traders in the old days. On both sides of the bridge are statues of monkeys and dogs while on the side attached with a temple built by the local people with a wish to overcome difficulties in their life.
