Golf excellence in Danang
After breakfast, take a short drive to the Montgomerie Links, Vietnam for a round at this famous golf club. Eight-time European Order of Merit winner and 2010 Ryder Cup-winning captain, Colin Montgomerie, designed the beautifully presented links-style course. It was the first – and remains the best – of the new courses to be created in the Central Coast area. The 2012 Forbes Travel Guide rated Montgomerie Links as one of Asia’s ten most elite courses, and it recently won a prestigious Asia Pacific Golf Award.

Time to explore Danang and Hue
Take a break from golf today, and explore the city of Danang and Hoi An. Previously occupied by both the French and the Americans, Danang marks the halfway point between the capital in the north, Hanoi, and Ho Chi Minh City in the south. Tour the UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Old Town and local markets. Apart from some shopping highlights and historical sights, the main attraction for tourists is its excellent golf courses, and famous beaches, My Khe Beach and Lang Co Beach. Another option is to travel the 1 ½ hour drive to the historical town of Hue. This deeply evocative capital of the Nguyen emperors still resonates with the glories of imperial Vietnam, even though many of its finest buildings were destroyed during the American War. Hue owes its charm partly to its location on the Perfume River – picturesque on a clear day, atmospheric even in less flattering weather. Today the city blends new and old as sleek modern hotels tower over crumbling century-old Citadel walls.
Optional golf available on request at Ba Na Hills Golf Club.

The Dunes offers breathtaking views of the Marble Mountains, East Sea and Cham Islands and is a great golfing challenge!
