  • 爬800多階才能抵達耶穌像,可以從山頂眺望頭頓市或是大海 若想進入耶穌像一定要記得穿長褲及相關服裝規定.入口處的管理人員十分嚴格執行此項規定.不可以心存僥倖.  more »
  • More than 800 Asian steps (lower than the European). However, a pretty decent workout and of course a quite above the sight when you reach the top and see the large Jesus statue. View of Vung Tau is a spectacle in itself. Unfortunately lined way up by thrown debris. Any campaign that "Hold Viet Nam rent" has never existed in this country and hell may simply remain. No one seems to care. There are bars on the top and along the way up, just remember that there is a siesta closed. One piece of advice is to take the drink itself. Summary, however, Jesus statue is one of the few sights in Vung Tau.

  • I liked to walk up and down the steps to exercise. I met really nice people in this location from all over the world. The view from the top is nice and there are a few shops for gifts and refreshments...  more »

  • Good view and not so hard climb, just 610 small steps. Super tight stairs inside the statue, not for big people. Best thing is it is all free. Would imagine it to be very crowded in high season. Typical temple clothing required (no short shorts, shoes or open cut shirts) and you have to leave your bags outside of the statue
  • nên tham quan
  • This is a must place to visit if you are already in Vung Tau. You don't need to be Christian, because the view from the top of the statue is breathtaking. Bring lots of drinking water, take your time to climb those steps and there are many resting stops along the way. It is best that you climb in groups, because you cannot make the final climb up the statue with your bags and shoes. It is best that someone from the group stay back to look after those items, taking turns to make the final climb. Take a lot of photos Note: The rules are very strictly enforced, no shoes or foot wares, no bags, no short dress for ladies, and not hats. There is a good reason why those rules are there: the steps up is very narrow and you literally go up with your head knowing someone bottom in front of you.
  • Great place to visit. Very peaceful place. Huge Jesus statue that allow people to go up till the Jesus shoulder. Reminder: bottle, bags, hat, shoes must left outside before entering Jesus statue. So take turn with yr friends...
