  • Such a nice place to calm yourself at the center of Vietnam's Buddhist Park. If not, even just a hike up the mountain is enough to refresh yourself, specially in Northern Vietnam where the pollution.....  more »
  • A little out of the way for the average foreign tourist but very well visited by VN nationals. Even though it is quite close (50km) to Ha Long, the public transport is easier from Hanoi or Haiphong...  more »

  • Spot on view when reaching the peak, only to be ruined by a stray of clouds a few minutes later. There's a pagoda near the bottom of the peak and multiple rest stops every 20 minutes or so on the hike. Hike was well worth it none of the less, probably the best alternative to Fansipan (Phan xi phang) in North Vietnam but less well known. There is also a nice pagoda near the cable car rides and multiple rest areas near them too. Be prepared, there are still many steps to conquer before reaching the next rest stops.
  • Quite OK hike thanks to funicular. Exotic view from the top. There was small temple on the top.
  • This pergoda is only 3 hours away from Hanoi so a perfect day trip. Allow 3-4 hours looking around and be prepared to walk up a lot of steps. Fitness and good shoes are the key. There are 2 cable cars to reach the top for a cost of 390,000 VND. You'll need to do this to get to the top. Well worth it.
  • Full of frog and wind. Sunshine sometime. Nice view.
  • The history place for Vietnamese Buddha Fellows, the must do for trekking people
