We took flight from HCMC to Da Nang in early morning. Few day before i booked a taxi to take us around danang city. Our driver was waiting at the airport for us. He took us all around the city before taking us to our hotel in Hoi An.
I was feeling like being in ancient Hindu temple surround by gods. It is one of the best museums in Vietnam visited by me. It is having a great collection of Sculpture related to cham culture. Most of the sculptures are well preserve. Only thing missing was the detailed information about sculpture.
Ground floor is dedicated to cham sculptures, which are collected from all over the Vietnam, also contains a souvenir shop. First floor, which is relatively small displays cutlery, coins and weapons along with few beautiful bronze colored statue of laughing Buddha (not sure) and deities.
There are several Buddhist temple and caves inside the marble mountains. It is steep climbing at some places and it was a good hiking trip. There is also lift facilities to reach the top. It is a famous pilgrimages place.
It is beautiful beach on the way to Hoi An from Danag. We reached their in afternoon but unfortunate could not find a single person on the beach.
After relaxing sometime near the small shops on the beach . We started our journey towards Hoi An.
