    Danang to set up Son Tra national tourism site

    Authorities in central Danang city have unveiled a master plan for developing Son Tra Peninsula into a national tourism site by 2025 with a vision towards 2030. About 10 km northeast of the city centre, the 1,000-ha tourism site is nestled on Son Tra Peninsula in Tho Quang ward, Son Tra district. The specific focus will be to develop a venue meeting the requirements for a national tourism site, such as the sustainable exploitation of marine and forest resources and the development of eco-tourism associated with sports, luxury marine, cultural and spiritual tourism products. Son Tra Peninsula is regarded as the green lung of the coastal city, with rich flora and popular tourism sites such as Linh Ung - Bai But Pagoda. It is home to around 300 red-shanked douc langurs, which are on the list of endangered species.

  • New langur tours in Danang

    Sightseeing tours to Son Tra Peninsula, about 10 kilometres from the centre of Danang, to discover the life of the endangered grey-shanked douc langur will be introduced shortly by the Management Board of Son Tra Peninsula and Tourism Beaches and the Son Tra Forest Protection Division. Tours will start at 4am and 4pm on a trial basis and last for two or three hours, as these are the times when langurs regularly appear and forage near Tien Sa Road on Son Tra Peninsula. The grey-shanked douc langur is one of the world’s 25 most-endangered primates and also among the most strikingly coloured. Certain rules must be followed on the tours, like wearing sports shoes to reduce noise when walking along Tien Sa Road, and only taking photos from cameras with a telephoto lens. Son Tra also has pristine natural scenery, with blue seas, unexplored forests, and diverse flora and fauna.
