Getting there means you have to ride the longest cable car in the world, and it is a flying journey over lush green valleys and cooling mist below to the dreamy castle at the end of the line. The European castle was built over a century ago and it provides the perfect setting for a fun paradise full of parades and laughter.

“Enter the mysterious world of Bà Nà Hills and experience the creative mix of European renaissance and the modern world.“
