Bo Bo Hill

Consisting of 4 main hills in succession with an area of 280 hectares bordering Dien Tien and Dien Tho Districts - Dien Ban Dist., this area possesses poetic scenery, with green caribe-pine forest, quiet water and fresh cool air all year round.
Further South from the hill top, the scenery of villages, countryside, rivers look like a vivid picture. In the war against French colonialists, Bo Bo was an important strategy location. In 1939, French colonialists chose this place as a military defense base for protecting Da Nang City. There was also an extended bitter fighting between the French army and Quang Nam troops. Bo Bo’s victory on the 19th of July 1954 was a final struggle of Viet Nam before signing the Geneva agreement one day later, to stop the French colonial war in Indochina. To commemorate this victory, a memorial was built on the hill.

Currently, Bo Bo is being planned to develop tourism by investing in pleasure-house, camping site, restaurants, entertainment services, and zoological park.

Bo Bo hill is 15 kilometres SouthWest of Da Nang and 25 kilometres northwest of Hoi An.
