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.

  • So all around the flat Summit overlooks Mekong Delta. Not much in the high mountains. I saw people walking and climbing when it's hot in the motorcycle was up and down. Motorcycle one way Summit, less than 100000 VND (meter) climb from the city by TAXI is one 50000 VND. Can two people ride behind the motorcycle. And temples and souvenir shops and eateries at the foot, there are moderate. At the Summit, there are small temples. Back rode to the TAXI was waiting.

  • The Sam mountain is about seven kilometers north of the city. This tourist destination is regarded as a local pilgrimage site, because the mountain is the home of many shrines, temples. Small cult centres lie along the path at the top of the mountain. The Summit, the view is very beautiful (the top, views of rice paddies and fields of sight on the Viet Nam and Cambodia).

  • An excellent view of the Sam mount on the Valley. We enjoyed the panorama under the Sun, it is very beautiful and worth the visit in mini car.
