Hai Van Pass

Hai Van Pass

$ 65 / 50 per person
Truong Son

The Hai Van Pass is arguably the most iconic stretch of road in Vietnam, and is renowned for its scenic beauty.

Made famous by the BBC motoring programme Top Gear in 2008, the pass was dubbed "A deserted ribbon of perfection - one of the best cost roads in the world" and is an absolute must during any Vietnam visit.

The pass crosses over a spur of the Truong Son (Annamite) range that emerges from the West and just into the South China Sea, forming the Hai Van Peninsula and the adjoining Son Tra Island. The pass, which once formed the boundary between the kingdoms of Dai Viet and Champa, also forms a boundary between the climates of Northern and Southern Vietnam, sheltering the city of Da Nang from the "Chinese Winds" that blow in from the Northwest.
