  • Something I was not expecting to see in Vietnam, a huge statue of Jesus Christ on top of a hill overlooking the ocean. Well worth the almost 900 steps to the top, good views of the city , if it is not...  more »
  • For a little effort to climb up, but what a view, you can see far away 360 degrees. Climb in the early morning at sunrise or in the evening before sunset

  • 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

  • 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...
