Photographer's Note

This picture was taken from Airplan.

Located on the stunning central coast of Vietnam, Lang Co is renowned for its natural landscape. Situated between the majestic Truong Son mountains and dazzlingly blue eastern Sea, visitors will find the mysterious An Cu Lagoon - famed. Only 15 km from Danang International Airport and 60 km from Phu Bai Hue Airport, Lang Co Beach Resort is within easy reach of National Route 1 A.

The travelers easily agreed with the media that the name Lang Co derives from Lăng Cô (A Miss’ Tomb) or Làng C̣ (Village of storks). Lang Co still has the ruined complex that the Nguyen Dynasty has built for their kings to enjoy the scenic landscape. Also we could find some trace of the French here and there, including in the modern history. So the best interpretation is L’An cu, as the French called its original name An Cư (Living Peacefully).

Actually, Lang Co Peninsula is a famous area with imposing scenery, mountains and forests, clear blue sea and soft, white sand adjoin each other that many travelers to Vietnam in the past have missed the chance to view this hidden beauty.

Recently, all traffic getting through the center of Vietnam has to take the 500m-high Sea&Cloud Pass and running across the 7km-stretch of sand of Lang Co. On 6-5-2005, the Hai Van 12km-Tunnel — with 6.3km main tunnel, 6.3km parallel evacuation tunnel and 1.9km ventilation system —has been opened for traffic. Instead of traveling up and down the 20km Hai Van Pass, it now only takes less than 10 minutes to cut through the Sea-n-Cloud Mountain Range. In other words, Lang Co is just 30-driving minutes from Danang, the 3rd International Airport of Vietnam.
