CU LAO CHAM – A WORLD BIOSPHERE RESERVE RECOGNIZED BY UNESCO
Cu Lao Cham, or Cham Island, is an attraction that is recognized as a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, renowned for its rich ecosystem and beautiful scenes. It is a perfect place for relaxation, rest, and escape from the ordinary, providing a tranquil note to complement Da Nang’s awesome journey.
What makes Cu Lao Cham worth exploring?
Cu Lao Cham is the “blue paradise” of Da Nang, owning many pristine and beautiful seasides like Bai Ong, Bai Bac, Bai Lang, and Eo Gio, where the sky above, the beach below, and relaxation surround. Here, you can allow the waves to wash away the strains of daily life, immerse yourself in the cool waters to refresh body and mind, or take an adventurous journey to the seabed to uncover the beautiful world of coral reefs. Alternatively, you can take a leisurely stroll along the shore, leaving footprints of joy in the sand.
Apart from its poetic beaches and “sea’s citizens”, Cu Lao Cham is also home to a diverse range of flora and fauna, including rare species such as monkeys, gibbons, squirrels, and various precious wood types. If you take enough “vitamin Sea” in Da Nang, then our recommendation is to immerse in the evergreen beauty of this island and get forest therapy
Cu Lao Cham is also a good place to discover the local cultural and historical heritage, which may date back over 300 years, like Cham Well, Hai Tang Pagoda, and the Ancestral Shrine of swallow nest farmers.
One of the reasons that makes Cu Lao Cham an unmissable attraction is its proximity to Hoi An and Da Nang. It only takes 30 minutes from Hoi An and approximately 2 hours from Da Nang to get here. If you have a day to spare exploring the surroundings of Da Nang, do not forget to add it to your list!
