What to explore at Son Tra Tinh Vien (Son Tra Peaceful Garden)
About 10km northeast of Da Nang’s centre, nestled in the beautiful mountainside on the Son Tra Peninsula, the Son Tra Tinh Vien (Son Tra Peaceful Garden) is considered as a wonderful nature reserve for over 100 species of bamboo.
The venue, the first of its kind in the Central region, boasts breathtaking scenery, tranquil space and fresh air all year round.
In 2004, venerable Thich The Tuong began to build his garden from a piece of sterile land, trying to realise his dream. The one hectare garden at first just had some native bamboo trees but later the number increased, together with the garden owner’s passion. Over the past years, the venerable has visited many places nationwide to bring back different varieties, with the aim of preserving their gene sources.
