The coastal road connecting Nui Thanh District, Tam Ky City, Hoi An Town, and Da Nang City in central Vietnam has gained popularity among travelers in recent times.
It cuts through isolated sand dunes, opening up an area which has been sidelined for years.
Is there any better way to explore central Vietnam than two wheels and a wide, open road?
Since the opening of Cua Dai Bridge over the Thu Bon River in 2008, the boundary along the coastal line between Quang Nam Province and Da Nang City has been removed.
The line spans over luxurious resorts and golden sandy beaches namely Cua Dai, An Bang, Ha My, Son Thuy, and My Khe – tropical paradises that are almost impossible to resist.
The grey, dreary winter goes by, leaving Son Tra Peninsula in sunny, joyful spring days.
Take a deep breath to fill one’s lungs with the herbal aroma and enjoy the crisp breezes on their skin.
Waking up after a long winter, the whole peninsula wears a new layer of young leaves.
Here and there, indigenous monkeys leisurely munch leaf buds.

Following the twisty road around Hai Van Pass must be the most memorable experience for any motorcycle traveler.
One might stay in awe in front of the majestic landscape spreading in front of their eyes.
Drifting clouds, bubbling streams, and humming birds might stay forever in the hearts of anyone having toured through this area.
The nearer travelers reach the pass’ peak, the colder it is – just enough to trigger their excitement and wake up their senses to fully embrace the mountain’s beauty.
From Hai Van Gate located at the top of Hai Van Pass, tourists can observe the narrow strip of land called Lang Co of Thua Thien-Hue Province.
Sandwiched between the ocean and Lap An Swamp, Lang Co stands out for its wild beauty in the thickening twilight.
As the night falls on Lap An Swamp, it is the right time to have dinner with seafood caught in the Lang Co area and find oneself immersed in the endless sky.
