Van Village

Although Van Village is just a small, pristine village located at the foot of Hai Van Pass – the pass is known as “the most majestic place in the world”. Not as busy as Ba Na Hill, not as well known as Ngu Hanh Son, but Van village beach is always an attractive destination in tourists’ journey to explore Da Nang. Let’s explore with Origin Vietnam what’s so attractive about this remote and beautiful village.

1. Where is Van village?

Van village beach is located in Hoa Hiep Bac ward, Lien Chieu district, Da Nang city, Vietnam. This place is about 20 km northwest of Da Nang city center and about 80 km southeast of Hue city.

2. How is Van village unique?

This small village has its back against a cliff, facing Nam Chon Bay and is especially uninhabited. The scenery here is wild but no less romantic. Perhaps that is why tourists who love to explore and like new destinations cannot suppress their curiosity and when traveling to Da Nang, they will come to Van village.

Since ancient times, people with leprosy have been rejected by society, they have been forced to travel far and wide to “run away” from discrimination. And Van village is their ultimate refuge. However, when leprosy could be cured and the patient could integrate into the community, this small village was abandoned from then on. With no human habitation, no tourism exploitation and no signs of commercialization, Van village retains its original beauty.

3. When is the best time to visit Van village?

Because Van village beach is located not far from Da Nang city and has typical weather conditions of Da Nang.

In fact, every season in Da Nang has its own beauty for you to explore. Traveling to this city in the dry season from January to July, the weather is not only beautiful and suitable for sightseeing, but this is also the time when it has many attractive festivals. Such as the international fireworks festival, Avalokiteśvara festival, boat racing festival, …

Visiting here from February to April or the year-end season will help you avoid crowds and save more money when the prices of services in Da Nang are quite affordable compared to the peak season. This is a favorable time for tourists to visit and relax.

Thus, the ideal time to travel to Da Nang is from September to April next year.
