Here’s a suggested itinerary for visiting Marble Mountains:

1.1. Morning:

We should depart in the early morning to beat the crowds and the heat. There are several peaks to explore, each offering unique sights and experiences. Thuy Son (Water Mountain) is the largest and most easily accessible of the five mountains. Therefore, heading to Thuy Son is the best idea for tourists to explore in the morning. You can choose to take the stairs or elevator up to the top.

Entry fee to Thuy Son (Water Mountain):

  • Adult: 40.000 vnd
  • Student: 20.000 vnd
  • Children: free

Besides, various caves, temples, and pagodas scattered across the mountain are waiting for you. Notable sites include Huyen Khong Cave, Tam Thai Pagoda, and Linh Ung Pagoda also deserve your visit.

  • Linh Ung Pagoda: A beautiful pagoda with stunning views of the surrounding area.
  • Huyen Khong Cave: A vast and mystical cave adorned with intricate Buddhist sculptures and altars.
  • Am Phu Cave: Descend into this cave to witness depictions of Buddhist hell and punishment.

Entry fee

  • Adult: 20.000 vnd
  • Student: 7.000 vnd
  • Children: free
  • Tam Thai Pagoda: Pay respects to this ancient pagoda dedicated to the gods of the mountains.

When you ascend the mountain, take time to enjoy panoramic views of the surrounding area from the mountain’s summit.

1.2. Midday:

After descending from Thuy Son, it’s time for a lunch break before heading to other mountains. You can find several restaurants and eateries near the base of Marble Mountains where you can enjoy local Vietnamese cuisine with authentic taste. 

1.3. Afternoon:

If you do not want to take a short nap and you’re up for more exploration, consider visiting one or two of the other Marble Mountains. Each has its unique features and attractions.

  • Moc Son (Wood Mountain) and Hoa Son (Fire Mountain) are less visited but offer serene environments and fewer crowds.

Another choice for those who are kind of tired after reaching the Thuy Son’s peak, exploring local shops and stalls selling marble sculptures, jewelry, and other souvenirs. Marble Mountains are famous for their marble carvings, so don’t miss the opportunity to take home a unique piece of art.

1.4. Evening:

If you are not too exhausted, you can wind down your day by heading to one of the nearby beaches, such as My Khe Beach or Non Nuoc Beach, strolling around the beach or watching the sunset.

After a day of exploring the Marble Mountains and the surrounding area, treat yourself to a delicious dinner at one of Da Nang’s many restaurants. You can find a wide range of cuisines to suit any taste.

Alternatively, you might want to unwind with a traditional Vietnamese massage or spa treatment to relax your muscles after a day of sightseeing.
