  • Disillusioned in Chamskih towers, we went to the pagoda Long Sean with unpleasant osadochkom. Nothing particularly waiting for (well, what can we expect from the "free" sites) were pleasantly surprised: beautiful place, girls in national costumes and Grand Buddha statue. For those who, like me, loves the Eastern architecture, would be nice to just sit down and admire the buildings roof with curved edges, such majestic and graceful.

  • In this place you can go alone or on a sightseeing tour. It is advisable to visit on a sunny day.

  • 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 :)

  • 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.
