Beautiful pagoda surrounded by luscious greenery. Not too far from the Old Quarter, you can easily get there by taxi or tuk tuk. It is definitely worth a visit and from there you can walk to the Presidential Palace and Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum

Really cool to visit during the Tet holiday, seeing many families come for offerings and prayer. It's a bit of a walk up there, but a great way to walk off all the street food.

The location and the pagoda is beautiful. It doesn't take long to walk around the grounds and you can watch the praying and rituals of the locals that visit. It's free to enter and a good cultural experience.

This is a must trip from Hanoi. From Hanoi it takes about 3 hours to get there! There is a lot of walking and climbing but it is worth the sights you will get to see!

We were here on the first day of the New Year (Tet) holiday and it was packed with locals. Because of the day entry was free. While the pagoda itself is quite an interesting site it is the adjacent grounds and temple that make the visit more memorable. It would be nice to visit on a quieter day and not... More

The red pagoda is nice but not so old while the temple in general is well maintained, nice view on the lake.

We saw this when we stopped alongside the lake. We didn't get to see it up close but we were close enough to get some good pictures before heading back to our hotel.
