  • This temple was one of the most beautiful our trip to Viet Nam. Especially the middle part, where the locals ask for anything is impressive. To depend on pink slips of paper that decorate an entire wall, on the other hand with the incense, spiral formed to a large hat and from the ceiling. Furthermore, the many decorations on the roof and Mauerabschlüsssen are a stunner. Absolutely seeing and worth a visit! Even if it is somewhat out of place as a tourist, like others wrote.

  • Pagoda Thien Hau is dedicated to the Chinese goddess of the sea. Venerated by the people whose work is connected with the sea, especially sailors. Out of other temples stands out plenty of incense-particularly interesting look spiral incense suspended from the ceiling, which creates a special atmosphere. You need to visit her.
