  • The pagoda itself, imposing this and sitting high above the Buddha as an ensemble represent one of the relatively few attractions of Nha Trang. At the seated Buddha, you can also enjoy a beautiful view over the city to the sea. Is this however must defeat some stairs.

  • Long son pagoda is the most beautiful place in Nha Trang. All in a tropical setting, Buddhist temple, climb the Hill, where there is a beautiful statue of the reclining Buddha, at the very top of the white big Buddha statue, in front of her observation deck-beautiful views of Nha Trang. Behind the statue of the Buddha are the walls that hold the ashes, as I understood, respected by local people. Recommend to visit the pagoda alone, we had all the posmotert', relax, photographing, with excursion group it is unlikely to succeed, and the show is that. From the Center by taxi 5 minutes, we reached on foot without straining. To visit!

  • Amazing place for sunset, you can see the undeveloped are of the town from the hill. The restaurant beside this is a must go. It's delicious and cheap (15.000vnd) for Pho and almost all meals.
  • Big Buddahs in this pagoda and beautiful architecture, but don´t go there if its too hot, lots of steps :)
  • phong cảnh đẹp
  • This place has the biggest budha statue in Vietnam. You can see it everywhere in this city. Come and explore the culture & people. Open everyday morning until sunset.
  • Two beautiful statues. The temple doesn't look or feel like Buddhist. Is all full of trash, turists and "guards" smoking cigarettes. They are rebuilding or bringing down the place (no idea) and is all cristianized: they charge you for "blessing" you!! Buddhism is absent.
