This is a beautiful building very iconic and of course great photo opportunity. The area is quite extensive with beautiful painted carvings. Further back is the old car which was photographed nearly 50 years ago when a monk set himself alight as protest. Iconic image of that time so many years ago and very sad. There are some absolutely amazing... More

The location and the historic site was amazing. I enjoyed the quick visit here, that also does not involve walking for miles except the first stair case.

We took a trip on a dragon boat on the perfume river to get to this temple it's about 6km from the Citadel on the same side of the perfume river. It took around 15 minutes to get to it and is accessed up about 20 steep steps. You can't go inside the temple but it is pretty from the... More

Lots of steps but worth the effort, fabulous views of the perfume river. The pagoda is old and run down but interesting.

A very present place to spend 30 minutes or so a bit of history a bit of well manicured garden buildings much like those you will already have seen but still worth a look and a very nice sense of calm

Very nice to visit in the evening. But very much local tourists occupied with taking selfies. Go to the back of the garden. Monks were playing soccer there.

We stopped off here as part of our city tour. It's a god spot to have a walk around and take a few photos but it's nothing too amazing. Our your guide gave us the history lesson in 15 mins then left us there for close to an hour which was far too long as he had covered everything and... More

My friend and I were travelling here by bike and were told it was 3kms from central city about 90 minutes later we arrived tired. Had to pay for parking for our bikes and had already been in 3 accidents on the trip there due to the business of Hue. Very beautiful views, amazing to see it up all the... More

We really enjoyed seeing this pagoda and the ornate areas within the pagoda. The special bonzai garden was a treat to walk through.

Nice bicycle drive up to the pagoda, but the pagoda itself isn't very special. The trees surrounding it make it a nice park to walk through, but don't expect too much from it.
