Sam Mountain, Mekong Delta

3.1
Sam Mountain is a sacred place for Buddhists, its environment packed with numerous temples and pagodas. Although it seems of special importance to the Chinese worshippers, Buddhists of all ethnicities flock here for the views and a chance to see notable religious sites. You'll see an old military outpost on the top, a remnant of a time when the Khmer Rouge made raids against the Vietnamese civilians.

One way is like 25000 VND (about 130 yen) price. Views from the Summit are excellent. There was covered in rice paddies to water's Cambodia. Realized for the first time, but in the pagoda at the Summit was "Yoni". It was a Hindu temple.

  • On the way up was nice, a bit disappointed after a long walk in the heat they didn't have a proper place to rest just too much with the souvenir sellers.  more »
