To enter Ba Na Hills, you don’t need to bother climbing. There are a lot of hotel accommodations that you can visit around Da Na Hill, one of which is the Mercure Danang Hotel. By buying an entrance ticket that is valid for one day (700,000 Dong), you can do some of the following activities.
1. Enjoy the View from the Cable Car
Before any construction, visitors to Ba Na Hills had to steep mountain road for twenty kilometers. But by cable car, the distance traveled is only five kilometers. Even though it sounds close, this is the longest cable car in the world.

4. Explore a Small French-themed Village
When Vietnam was colonized, Bana Hills was a village inhabited by French people. The cold air makes French build settlements on the mountain. Unfortunately, the village was damaged during World War II. Only one building has survived to this day, the ancient wine cellar.
To revive the atmosphere at that time, the manager built a village with old French-style buildings complete with churches, lampposts and antique cars.
