Beautiful Rare Birds on Son Tra Peninsula

1700

About 10km northeast of Da Nang’s centre, the Son Tra Peninsula is seen as a ‘green lung’ for the city. It also plays a vital role as a wind barrier, protecting the city during the rainy and stormy season.

The peninsula is now home to a wide range of rare birds and other animal species, including red-shanked douc langurs, crab-eating macaques, rhesus macaques, reticulated pythons, and red junglefowl.
