Again this port is isolated and very far from the nearest town..you got two choices,take a very expensive shore exursion organized by the ship or risk taking a taxi that cant speak and understand english,drives dangerously and at a rip off price....Ships should provide a shuttle service even for small price to bring the people to the nearest town to safeguard its patrons!! The port is about 30km from DaNang city..or more than an hour drive..

About Da Nang, Vietnam
Vietnam's third-largest city, Da Nang serves as a main port for neighboring Laos, once the capital of the kingdom of Champa. Near Da Nang are the Marble Mountains, the five peaks of which are named after the elements: water, earth, metal, fire, and wood. The mountains are complete with caves and secret passages containing Buddha images and shrines.

We missed this port of call due to Super typhoon Saola. On this particular itinerary, we missed our first 3 ports of call, skirting around this storm. 😕 We were at sea for 8 consecutive days without setting foot on any land mass. There was a small passenger mutiny on board. The captain threatened to have all the mutineers put ashore at the next port of call (wherever that might be). It was an ugly affair and not handled very professionally by the captain or crew.
Do the Hanoi trip. It’s VERY long (13+ hours) but well worth it. Not much to see otherwise
