Colourful Ba Na Hills festival carnival in Tet holiday

Da Nang's Ba Na Hills will be sparkled with lights and colours during the second Carnival festival from January 29 to February 15 (on January 2-19 of the lunar calendar).

Performers in royal costumes will lead off the parade, followed by drummers, dancers, magicians, jugglers, stilt walkers and circus acts.

A spring flower show featuring 25,000ornamental plants will be divided into subjects, Happiness, Love, Friendship, Gathering and Joyful.

The event will bring a traditional atmosphere and cultural space of the Lunar New Year, aiming at giving a warm and happy Tet to visitors. Tourists will have a chance to join Banh Chung (Vietnamese Square Sticky Rice Cake) making, giving calligraphy and portrait drawing.

25km to the southwest of Da Nang at an altitude of 1,487m, Ba Na Hills are considered as “One temperate place in the tropical forest” because the climate is cool all the year round.
Ba Na cable cars hold two Guinness World Records: the world’s longest single cable car system (5,042.62 m long) and the world highest gap between its departure and arrival station (1,291.81 m high).
