Cultural Destination

Welcome to a magical, one-of-a-kind destination where natural beauty, vibrant culture and fascinating history all share the spotlight. The InterContinental® Danang Sun Peninsula Resort is located near three UNESCO World Heritage Sites and set among the pristine beaches and unspoiled forests of Son Tra Peninsula.

The charming old town of Hoi An, only 30 km away, is home to quaint lanes of ancient shophouses and chic restaurants. The imperial city of Hue, the capital of Vietnam’s last dynasty, the Nguyen, is just around 100 km to the north, but worth the trip to explore its many monuments, such as the Citadel and various royal tombs of the Nguyen emperors.

Just beyond Hoi An lie the beautiful Cham Islands and the incredible ruins of My Son—the spiritual center of the 1,000-year-long Champa Kingdom, where ancient temples dating from the fourth to the 14th century are dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva.

Closer to the resort, the surrounding Son Tra Peninsula is an area of outstanding natural beauty, home to lush tropical forests and golden beaches. A government protected area, the peninsula covers 3,000 square kilometers and is home to over 300 varieties of plants, many rare and endangered species of animals, including the extremely rare red-shanked douc langur.

There are a number of myths about Son Tra. It is said that at one time fairies from heaven, attracted by the beauty of this peninsula, secretly landed on one of the beaches to play, sing, dance and bathe. Legend also has it that fairies used to play chess on a large, flat rock located on Son Tra Mountain—as a result it is known as Ban Co Peek, or "chessboard."

The magic of the Son Tra Peninsula and Vietnam’s Central Coast region continue today. Our “in-the-know” staff is on hand to guide you to the best the destination has to offer.
