Religious Site Tourist Spot
Admire a huge 24 m (79 ft) tall statue of White Gautama Buddha--the largest outdoor scultpure in Vietnam--at Long Son Pagoda, the largest pagoda in the country. Intricate dragon mosaics made of glass and ceramic tiles decorate the entrance to the temple, with the large statue of the reclining Buddha resting in the temple’s well-manicured garden. Climb 152 steps to the top of the mountain to enjoy the big Buddha arising from lush greenery from a distance, as well as gaining panoramic views over the city.

  • The place is beautiful! If tell guide or read about this site help, generally more interesting. At the top (where a hefty statue of Buddha on a Lotus) offers beautiful views of Nha Trang. Entrance is free of charge. ATTENTION! Be careful with local! Here you may require money for anything (don't go on about, don't mess with anybody, no matter what do not agree). For example, may require money for free entrance; can offer a stick with fragrances put, and then require a considerable sum; may be obvious, but then require quite an impressive amount for the services of a guide; can offer to make a wish inside the Bell, and then again to demand money. Be careful, do not let yourself be fooled, and your opinions about this place would be, as my wife, Yes.

  • It's a nice temple to see some local culture, which is hard to find in Nha Trang. Maybe it was a slow day but there weren't too many tourists and nobody was fishing for donations or anything. I had a very nice walk around to see the sights and views of the city.
  • Nice place to visit and get your Buddhist temple history of the area (and is is impressive). Plus some good views of the surrounding suburbs. But the sheer amount of people looking to extract money or ask for donations or just hassle you is a major buzzkill to any serenity.
  • Lovely pagoda..sleeping budda half way to the large white budda at the top...great views over Nha Trang...
  • One of the attractions in Nha Trang, built over 100 years ago, the white Buddha statue made it famous. Must visit!
  • Nice pagoda to see local culture. Historic place
