We had an amazing view of Da Nang. A lot of fun and not difficult to navigate the roads. Rent a good motobike rather than pay for a tour. So you can stop wherever you like. Go there and enjoy the peaceful, beautiful scenery...

It's a nice place and view from the top is mind blowing. I was bitten by a monkey here. Beware!! I am not sure if it was my fault. I should not have gone too close to that one monkey at the top.

No closing time for visiting SonTra mountain. However you should not stay there too late because that is a deserted area. The best time for visiting there is in the early morning until before 5 pm in the dry season.

Since there are no lights along the way, its best to get down the mountain before sundown. There is no closing time.

Son Tra Mountain (Monkey Mountain) (6 Replies)
Anyone been up Son Tra Mountain (Monkey Mountain) near Danang? Is it worth a day trip from Hoi An? What if, instead of going to the top, we just circled the peninsula - it there anything to see?

It is well worth spending some time up there. Very nice if you can go on the back of a motorbike and stop and see the sights. If you go, do so as early in the morning as possible before the massive Korean tour groups arrive in long lines of buses.
