    9:00 Our first stop is at the Marble Mountains. Its five mountains are named after five elements: metal, fire, wood, earth and water. They are home to numerous tunnels, pagodas, caves and many grottoes ready to be explored. Walk the stone stairs to the top of Thuy Son (Water Mountain) for a panoramic view of the nearby countryside.

Enjoy the ocean views from sea level, because we are about to climb the mountain to enjoy the panorama of majestic ocean at the top.
