  • Visited as part of a tour. There are lots of steps to get to the top of the Marble Mountains - but it is worth it! There are great views across the area to be had from the top - as well as the pagoda....  more »
  • Good walk! the place seems popular with tour buses, but around lunch time everyone left so the feeling was very different then. we liked it!  more »
  • We were on a group tour of about 18 people. This was one of our stops when we were heading from Hoi An to Hue (all in the same day). I am very glad we got here early how it was just starting to get...  more »

  • This is a good trip for people that don't mind touristy activities and like temples. If you don't like these, skip this trip. If you do like these kinds of experiences you will get a nice hike and some views of well kept temples. Please remember to wear appropriate clothing out of respect (no shoulders showing and no shorts for both men and women). Although there is no one really monitoring this, it's just the right thing to do. I would also recommend sneakers since there are some areas where you have to climb over some rocks. There were a good amount of tourists, but definitely not as crowded as the caves in Ha Long Bay. At the base of the mountain there are people who will try to sell you marble. If you plan to buy something from them, make you you negotiate. I found the same pieces at a night market later on for literally half the price before even bargaining, I was really glad I did not allow them to scam me.
  • Loved it. Ancient caves, beautiful views, marble rocks, peaceful pagodas and huge Buddha statue inside a wall in one of the caves.. Must visit. You can buy nice small souvenirs along the road. Bargaining must. But don't go into the big shops cum exhibitions.. A tourist trap.
  • Definitely worth a visit! So many things to see. From caves to scenery and temples. This place has it all. A full day of fun! I loved loved loved this place. Be careful of the women selling closer to the street by the marble statue store and it has a little eatery. They will try to rip you off!! The women who greet you really nice and try to be helpful in the beggining. I never bought from them because the prices were way over priced and they have a lot of fake stuff.
  • It's one of the main attraction around Hoi Ann city. There are two ways to reach this place either stairs or lift. You can either buy the tickets for one way lift or both ways but in my opinion you should take one way ticket apart from temple tickets. There are at least 10 temples present once you take the lift. It's kind of simple trekking place also. There are caves and many more stairs you will come across. If you are visiting this beautiful city you must visit this place too. It will take minimum 3 hours to complete this tourist attraction.
  • A nice hike up hill. Good views at the top. Lots of interesting caves and temples. I came towards the end of the day, it was a nicer temperature for walking, and there were less sellers etc. Watched the sunset from the top. Had a light for coming back down. Next time I'd like to try going to sunrise :-)
