Son Tra Peninsula
Just 13km away from Danang city centre lies Son Tra Peninsula, an area blessed with immense natural beauty. Recognized almost 20 years ago as a nature reserve, Son Tra is largely covered with dense rainforest, and is home to over 100 species of fauna, including the rare Red Shanked Douc, a primate that lives in the trees of the Son Tra Jungle. At the Son Tra Peninsula, itscalm, turquoise waters and sandy beaches are among some of Danang’s finest, so be sure to spend some time soaking in the sun here.
Along the road to the beautiful peninsula located the latest Linh Ung Pagoda, one of the three sanctuary Linh Ung Pagodas around Danang city. Built on a site of 12 hectares on the Son Tra Peninsula since 2011, the Linh Ung, Son Tra Pagoda is the largest in Da Nang in terms of scale and artistic architecture. The pagoda is famous for its beautiful 67-metre-tall Goddess of Mercy statue standing on a lotus-shaped platform. The pagoda has become more and more popular to the tourists who come to visit not only Danang city but also the Central Coast Vietnam.
