What people are saying about Hải Vân Pass

The transfer from Da Nang to Hue went well. Upon agreement, the driver will stop at the sights and wait there. You have enough time to explore them. It would be good to book in good time in order to be able to clarify departure and other details beforehand. As stated in the description, tickets are not included.

The caves in the Marble Mountains are really worth seeing, as is the drive up to the pass. The food and the stop at Lang-Co Beach are OK and simply necessary to have a point beyond the pass.
