  • To reach to the statue, you will need to climb 811 steps. This is not for someone who is not used to walking up so many steps. However, there are rest areas along the way to the top. Worth the effort ...  more »
  • It's worth, it's free and great! You will not be disappointed despite the exercise you need to do

  • Raised on heat, and on top of the rain and had to wait for its end. The statue itself consist of need without shoes, barefoot, after the rain the entire staircase is wet, slippery, narrow, all walked carefully, afraid to fall. You can go on a small platform on the hands. There by the way there are thorns, so people don't get on at hand)) kind of splendid shows Beach, city, mountain. Slightly less massive likeness of Rio Christ Statue on Mount and a view of the local Kopokabanu) P.S. clothes should be closed!

  • 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...
