  • There is absolutely no thought to the test of the experience of the trip, the hotel shuttle to come, the original five elements of the ticket with the elevator ticket, with a simple map of the same few postcards. Along the road to a lot of stairs to the mountain downhill, but the stairs for many days long lost, high and low, to be careful. May be the sky, and go up to compare anchor, do not see the Buddha shines. Well, it's worth it.

  • The Marble Mountains are a great tourist trap. We were here in late January and we took the stairs, which combined with the heat was certainly noticeable. We had lots of fun looking at the different pagodas and shrines. There were some very cool cave features, it reminded me of the Temple of Doom at some points and aside from some falling rocks, it was relatively safe. Some of the caves are very tight and with water on the ground it was slippery. Bring lots of water, its a bit of a hike to see the whole site but its a great way to spend a couple hours.
  • A gem in Vietnam, the water mountain is a well preserved series of temples, pagodas and caves. You must have at least some condition to be able to climb the uneven stairs, but you can see a lot of people who make it there. Its easy to get lost because of the explanation in the map. There's a really interesting cave that leads you to the top of the mountain in where you can have an amazing view of the other mountains and the sea.
  • Lots of stairs. Take the lift up. The stone steps are polished from many feet, so very slippery if wet. The map is conceptual, not accurate. Great views and caves with Buddhist altars.
  • The Marble Mountains were a pretty cool place to visit. Came in January and it was still a bit warm with all the stairs. If you're going through some of the caves be prepared for tight stairs with people trying to go the other direction. The goods at the shops all looked pretty cheap, but actually got a good bowl of pho right across the street from the cave entrance. You do have to pay separately for the cave and mountain, and the elevator is additional if you want it. I didn't use it, but might be nice in the summer.
  • Out of this world. Religion can really part of nature. The many caves with pagodas make this place serene and the view is nowhere else to be found but perhaps in Batu caves Malaysia. Going through the forest with a map guide makes it more like an Indiana Jones experience. I can finish my whole day going around at this one place
