  • We visited it by dragon boat and couldn't enjoy the beautiful grounds because my son didn't want to look around. Nice location overlooking the river. The pagoda itself is beautiful and unique. Ancient Pagoda with special architecture. Very historical. Entrance was free.
  • Iconic and historical pagoda in Hue. It was build by Lord Nguyen Hoang and been there along history until now. Not many things to see but the view across Perfume River is just too good! No entrance fee but only pay for parking fee.
  • Peaceful and well maintained Buddhist temple. Great view of Perfume River
  • Peaceful place with Perfume river in front of. You can go here eithet by boat or taxi
  • Located at the city limits of Hue this place is worth a trek. You can walk if you're fit or cycle along the riverside path to the Pagoda. Alternatively take the riverboat for about $20 round trip. A fascinating building and temple which houses, in a car a relic of the burning monk, who martyred himself as a protest. Lovely gardens with bonsai and a detailed mystical pond.
