We Spent July 4th at Ba Na Hills Amusement Park in Da Nang

…and then we recorded this podcast.

On July 4th we recorded this episode after spending the day at Ba Na Hills amusement Park. We had a blast! We took a car out of Da Nang city and into the mountains to the cable car (gondola) at the base of BaNa Hill. From there we rode to the top of the mountain to explore the whimsical Faux French Village at the top!
It felt like a day at Disney World, but with a lot of interesting and mind boggling cultural differences to learn about. I think this was almost more like a Magic School Bus Adventure…. highly educational, extremely entertaining, and a little trippy.

 

IN THIS EPISODE WE’LL: 

  • Recap our day at Sunworld Ba Na Hills, Da Nang, Vietnam

  • Update you on all the shit we’ve been doing since our last episode. (Spoiler: We stay in most nights like complete nerds….)

  • Tell you about our interesting night life…aka what netflix shows we’ve been watching

  • Reveal our trashy summer TV obsession

  • Get pulled into hundreds of tourists’ selfies

  • Discuss expectations and differences between Sunworld Da Nang Wonders “Asia Park” and Sunwold Ba Na Hills

  • Learn the difference between bassoon and tuba…tuba impression included!

  • Take a Vietnamese drivers-ed class…BUMPER CARS

  • Discover some cultural differences between Asian tourists and Western tourists

  • Get an animatronic lesson in dinosaur anatomy
