  • 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.
  • ❤❤❤❤ Few years back, we had been here with tour friends from KK, Sabah, East Malaysia.....It is awesome breathtaking view from top of the statue..
  • Dole pohlídají motorku, nahoru musíte jít po svých. Je to pěkná procházka, mimo sezónu nikdo nikde. Nahoře to kazí stánky s občerstvením a plno laviček. Můžete tu taky vidět dvě děla a je tu pěkný rozhled na moře. (na město vidět není) Na sochu se dá i vylézt, ale pozor na otevírací dobu, je tu přes poledne zavřeno.
  • Nice view, just watch your head! Go on a nornal day for fewer people
  • Great views of the surrounding area with a nice breeze. The stairway up is narrow, entry is free and there are places to buy snacks and drinks during the short hike up to the monument. Entrance is free but a donation is appreciated and there seems to be a few restrictions on apparel but I don't think they are strictly enforced. Worth a visit for sure!
