Asia Park and Sun Wheel in Da Nang (Sun World Da Nang Wonders)

Have you ever seen the wheel of Da Nang? That is the Sun Wheel. It’s a part of greater Asia Park – an amusement park with a heap of fun games and kool rides.

Travelers often visit Ba Na Hills when staying in Da Nang also (the Golden Bridge is one of the reasons motivating them!). This huge entertainment complex has a theme park too, namely the Fantasy Park and it’s free to charge to enter. Outdoors, it’s two Alpine coaster tracks, providing a fascinating ride down the mountain slope. Indoors, a tall drop tower is in the middle, and others. So, it’s easy to understand that many people remove the Asia Park in their travel plan.

So why visit the Asia Park? To be honest, it provides a series of rides that Ba Na Hills Fantasy Park doesn’t have. All of them are outdoors. The ride on the Sun Wheel – the world’s 4th largest observation wheel is really deserving to experience. For sure, it’s impossible to find anywhere else around the area. Additionally, the admission fee is quite low. That may be not much to pay for kids and give them a happy time.

Here, we introduce the Asia Park in Da Nang and everything around it.

About the Asia Park in Da Nang

The Asia Park (or Sun World Da Nang Wonders) is a themed park in the heart of Da Nang, a famous tourist city in Vietnam. It has been opening since 2014. Like its name, this amusement park has a focus on Asian cultures, with great entertainments and exciting activities. Its nearly-870,000 m2 ground was designed by Bill Bensley architect who achieved his success in the Intercontinental Hotel previously.

From a far distance, people easily recognize Asia Park’s ferris wheel (called as the Sun Wheel). This new landmark is amongst the highest one of its type worldwide, a stunner in Da Nang city’s skyline today. The ride on the Sun Wheel is most worth experiencing in all of 20 games and rides in the park. Probably, it’s one and only in town.

Sunset is a good time to experience the ride of the Sun Wheel. From its top – 115 meters above the sea level, the riders will see a breath-taking Da Nang cityscape, with distant mountains and tree-lined streets. The Han river turns into a golden mirror flowing under uniquely designed bridges.

Simply, travelers just need to stand aside major streets and hail one. To get back, taxi cars are many by the entrance of the park.

If the Grab is downloaded already on the phone, type the name of the hotel and confirm its address to know the price. Payment is flexible, by cash or card.  


Thanks to the prime location – in the heart of Da Nang city, it’s really convenient to get to the Asia park by motorbike. At the present, one day rental is from 100,000 to 200,000 VND, excluding gasoline. The quickest way to have it is from the hotel.

The Sun Wheel: Highlight of the Asia Park

History of the Sun Wheel Da Nang

The ferris wheel itself originally is the Igosu 108 at Shiga, in the Greater Tokyo of Japan. Its height is 108 meters, and was used from 1992 to 1997. During this period, it’s the tallest one of its type in the world (then replaced by the Tempozan Ferris Wheel in Osaka). In 2001, it’s closed. Later, it was dismantled and relocated to Da Nang city, with the new name “Sun Wheel” because of the Sun Group’s ownership.

Rebuilt on a higher base, that’s why the Sun Wheel is 115 meters, making it become the 4th largest observation wheel on Earth. On 18th July 2014, it’s officially opened, as a part of the Asia Park and a great addition to Da Nang’s skyline. In the evening, 13,000 neon lights altogether give a sparkling spectacle.

The Ride on the Sun Wheel

From the park, visitors need to go up escalators to join the queue. Sun Wheel’s operating hours are from 4 to 10 pm daily, including weekends and Vietnam’s national holidays.

It takes the riders 15 minutes to complete one round. Each capsule accommodates maximum 6 people, fitted to small groups of friends and families. Couples and solo travelers can have a private capsule in case there are not many people in the queue. The door is closed throughout the ride to guarantee safety, and is just unlocked by staff. At the same time, the Sun Wheel can carry 384 people.

Note: Children below 1,19 meters or under 12-years-old have to go with their parents.

The circle goes upwards, allowing riders to view Da Nang at night and below the theme park. The city is full of lights, showing the transformation over the last decades and the vibrancy of a young urban. At the tallest point, it’s possible to photograph the Han river, coupled with its stunning bridges and waterfronts. The sail-like one is Tran Thi Ly bridge, a suspension bridge. Behind it are the Dragon bridge and the Han River bridge.

Each rider has one ride only. The staff will open the capsules and welcome passenger’s arrival. After that, it’s just needed to get escalators down, to continue exploring the Asia theme park.

How Much for a Sun Wheel Ride?

The Sun Wheel ticket costs 100,000 VND for adults and children taller than 1,4 meters. It’s 50,000 VND for children with height between 1 and 1,39 meters, and free of charge for smaller kids.

To buy the ticket, visitors have to come to the booth opposite to Sun Wheel’s entrance. If purchasing the all-in-one Asia Park ticket, the ride is included already.

Dragon Bridge Fire and Water Show

From 9 pm every weekend, the dragon of the Dragon Bridge breathes fire and then water. Witnessing this show has become a must-do activity for tourists in Da Nang since it began in 2013. The best spots which spectators can find: on Tran Hung Dao St’s pavement until the statue of “Fish Transforming into Dragon”, river cruises on Han river or rooftop coffee shops. Standing on the bridge supports better photos and videos, but the rain pour will make anyone wet. See further information in
