Things to do on Moc Chau Island

Walk the glass bridge

The main attraction of Moc Chau Island is the glass walking bridge. Visitors can brave the walk across whilst peering down at your feet at the abundance of greenery 150 meters below. The bridge snakes around the edge of a mountain for even more of a wow factor.

Zip-line to the bottom of the Island

Once you have finished your walk across the glass bridge, you can either opt to walk to the island area, take one of the free buggies that drive around the park or strap into a harness to whizz down to the bottom on a zip-line. The zip-line suspends you directly above the island and nature. The cost for an adult to take the zip line is 180,000 vnd. The cost for a child is 120,000 vnd.

Ride the slides

Another fun activity on the island is riding the rainbow slides. Visitors can take one of the buggies to the top of the slide departure point. Once you reach the top, hop into a rubber tube and take a whirl down to the bottom, bumping up and down as you go. The cost to ride the slides is 90,000 vnd for 2 turns or 120,000 vnd for 4 turns. Note: You can buy 2 or 4 turns and share the tickets with other people in your group. We purchased 4 turns and were able to use 2 each.

Arcades

Located on the Island is the Batcave games centre. The arcade has typical arcade equipment consisting of air hockey, driving simulator games, a dance floor, and other typical arcade games. Unlike the arcades located on Ba Na Hills in Danang, where the games are free to play, you will need to purchase coins. Coins to play are sold in bundles starting from 100,000 vnd for 20 coins.

Where to stay in Moc Chau

There are plenty of places to stay in Moc Chau, but one of the highly rated places where we stayed was MAMA’s House. We stayed in a private room with a balcony. The room itself was clean and cosy and the views and scenery were perfect for enjoying a morning tea. MAMMA’s House is set back enough for a relaxing, quiet stay, but close enough to Moc Chau town for you to nip out to the shops or grab local food if you need to. Aside from the room, MAMA’s House also offers hotpot and BBQ for the evening meal. If you wish to take advantage of this (which we highly recommend you do as the food options in town are quite limited), you need to inform the guesthouse a few hours in advance so they can prepare your meal for you.
