The Marble Mountains,
Vietnam, Central Coast and Highlands
Info : The Marble Mountains
For the fit and the willing, this tour combines an active climb to the top of one of the Marble Mountains, with some well-deserved relaxation!
Nestled just a short distance from both Danang city and Hoi An, the five rocky outcrops known as the Marble Mountains are said to represent five natural elements, and are the source of all manner of legends. The climb to the top is via stairs cut from stone, and as you weave your way toward a spectacular view of Vietnam's coast and the South China Sea beyond, you will stop to visit many of the temples and caves en-route. Upon your descent and after all that expended energy, a swim is in order! 'China Beach' is the ideal location with a pristine expanse of deserted, white sandy beach. Whilst many locals will dispute which stretch of sand is the 'real' China Beach, there is no denying that this is one of the most beautiful, undiscovered beaches in Asia. Take some time out to relax, perhaps consider lunch in a nearby resort, before returning to your hotel.
We informed Experience Travel Group which countries we wished to visit and our budget and left it up to them to suggest an itinerary and organize. We actually went with all of there suggestions including a cruise up the Mekong which hadn't occurred to us but was stunning. All the travel arrangements went without any hiccups and all the guides met us when and where arranged. As we were doing different things every day (at our request) this was no mean feet. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Experience Travel for people who want a tailor made holiday in the Far East!
