  • Agree with most revues that this temple should be visited with a tour guide as there is very little information. It is a small temple but comes with a fascinating history and annual festival.  more »
  • Worth a visit but you have to be inquisitive. There are various buildings on the site and some don't look interesting until you push open a door or two to see what's inside!  more »

  • Something we haven't seen in 40 years of travel: a temple dedicated to a whale with an actual whale skeleton
  • Very nice whale temple. A story tale behind this, how whale save them. But those whale bones are belongs to a group of whales stranded.
  • Special religion
  • Shrine China-this place is definitely worth a visit! Inside the temple you'll see 18-meter skeleton of a whale. Very beautiful temple! Take a peek here, definitely not regret it. Next to the temple is very much a local pigeon baited them. You can make a very nice photo with pigeons))

Where to stay in Vung Tau

Most of the accommodations of Vung Tau, you won't be surprised to learn, sit by the beaches. Choose from densely populated areas of budget-friendly hotels and guesthouses, as well as more spacious stretches where large resorts and luxury hotels sit. Search all around the peninsula for the style and price that suits, as nothing here is very far away from the main attraction. Even visitors that stay a bit inland may end up with a place to be proud of, with French colonial hotels set back from the sea.
