  • It overlooks the water and it is a really nice place to walk around. A bit far from the old quarter but worth the tuc-tuc ride.  more »

  • Nice place but with people trying to cheat you inside and outside. Sad that they let them in.
  • Built in the early 11th century, one of the oldest and well conserved temples in town. It is about 500m away from Ho Chi Minh's Mausoleum.
  • Rất đẹp

  • Tu tran thang long
