I felt that I wasted my time going there. Sure the size of the complex is impressive, but expect to spend a lot of time going from one sight to another. Either walking (very unpleasant if it's hot as there is no shade and it's...More

A really impressive combination, though it's still under construction. The brand new building didn't deter from being ready to appreciate the significant grounds, which we discovered to be well maintained, the pagodas and also the Buddha line up. Hawkers have been tame; many users didn't...More

This tourist attraction is worth a visit since it’s unique and the largest Pagoda in Vietnam. There are 500 La Han statues plus a 32-foot bronze Buddha statue. The walk to see the La Han statues and the bell and the bronze Buddha statue can...More

With all the temples around Vietnam charging entance fee, you would think this will cost a fortune to see, and tet it’s completely free. The size of this place is overwhelming, better reserve minimum 2 hours just to quickly see most of it, probably would...More
