Climbing the many steps is hard work, so go slowly. That's what we did. It also adds to the spiritual experience. Rather than running up the many steps (we could not, even if we had wanted to do so, which we did not), take your time. It's much more satisfactory/spiritual. Photos do not do justice. The Buddha is big, my... More

Very well worth the steps to view the Buddha and view from the top of the hill the Pagoda itself is lovely although be aware that shorts, skirts are not allowed, so coverup if you would like to view all of it.

This Pagoda does not allow Chinese people to go in. The Statue of Budha looks new and it would be nice if you can capture one picture with Budha between blue sky

Long Son Pagoda was your usual Pagoda. After visiting Myanmar, all pagodas look similar. Most interesting part in pagoda was monk giving blessing to little boy as he left offering. I do love viewing the Buddha images and love the incense. I walked up many steps to view the White Buddha image that was established in 1963 to honor monks... More

We decided to walk from Nha Trang Beach to Long Son Pagoda, it took around 40mins and was worth the walk. Walking around the Pagoda was very peaceful, there are some steep steps to get up to see the Buddha at on the hill but it was worth the climb. Once up there you can get a panoramic view of... More

Just another pagoda which very much pales in comparison to those in China and Thailand. The Pagoda looks very new and there are touts seeking donation around the Pagoda by offering incenses.

Big white Buddah sits overlooking the city with the beautiful mosaic dragons that decorate the roof. Views are great and there is ample photo opportunity. Worth the hike up but it can be reached by car up a very tight narrow road.

The buddhas at this pagoda is very beautiful and amazing to see up close. The buddha sleeping on it's side is very unique and I loved the detail. This pagoda is very peaceful and wasn't flooded by Chinese people. Just be careful of people handing out incense sticks at the buddhas because they would just hand out the incense and... More

Enjoy it and it's pretty good. Can be hot for the kids but it's good visit anyway. We were there for an hour in the morning and the crowd started pouring in.

Six of us went here and toured the site. Expect to need only one hour max here. There are no fees to get in and there is lots to see. Street access is VERY busy, crazy at times. Parking is tough and we had private rickshaw that dropped us and waited, worked well. We all thought the site was neat,... More
