A beautiful pagoda having a beautiful view on the river. The pagoda has a good story so I'd suggest you to work with a local guide. Then towards the pagoda is a wharf where you are able to hire a dragon boat driver.

Beautiful pagoda and garden. The monks were praying at the tome of our visit and it was a great opportunity for us to see and experience that. It is touristically very crowded site.

While the pagoda is impressive, make sure you head around the left side to tribute to the moon who self immolated in protest against the government.

The pagoda is by the river and has nice view. The atmosphere is very relaxing. Don't miss the old car in the garage, it has some history.

The atmosphere is very relaxing here. The view of the river is beautiful. The bonsai trees in the back are quite impressive with their different shapes and sizes, etc. It's free so it's always nice to visit.
