The Marble Mountains create a stunning backdrop to the picturesque coastal city and are also home to Vietnam’s rich culture with Buddhist temples and sanctuaries dotted throughout the mountains. The mountains consist of 5 limestone and marble hills and are a great place to enjoy gorgeous views of the beach.
