Take a train ride on a funky 2 or 3 car wooden train through greenhouses of flowers (a major export of the region) and get to this enclave of pagodas. Colorful is an understatement. One pagoda had snakes and dragons and men made from broken bottles and pottery.(and had a bathroom). A hit with locals so get there early before... More

I loved the pagoda as it's so very different from other pagodas in Vietnam. The view from the top is nice. It's really worth to spend some time there. Easily accesible by motorbike, around 15min drive from the city center.

Interesting Idea, some giant wood caving, but a bit to much Biz, to many trying to sell something more like a market with a Pagoda to draw in bus by bus load of visitors. The wood working shop that makes 20.000USD tables and chairs makes some "Pagoda therms" wood carvings ( perhaps to keep going buying wood and selling it,... More

Having visited China and now Vietnam in the last year I have seen many pagodas of late but Linh Phuoc is one of a kind a short journey by train followed by a 10 minute walk you arrive to something you just have to see to believe the size, color and detail that has been put in to this Pagoda...

Take a train ride from Dalat to the end of the line and then it's a short walk to this mad (recently built) temple and pagoda. This is what religion should be all about - fun and colourful. Around every corner there's a photo, but take time to sit and look closely at the artwork. You'll be surprised by what... More

This attraction certainly hits the eye with its temples and garish mosaic displays. The 20 metre buddha made entirely of flowers...2 tons I was told. The 60 metre dragon/serpent which is made of beer bottles, green, brown....this is recycling Viet style. Also you can watch as the artists crack and shape old tiles, cups and dinner plates to create the... More

You can see so nice and traditional architecture. If you are spellbound of traditional temple architecture, don't miss it. There are some precious item. Take the old train to get here.

After seeing many, many pagodas in Asia I was blown away by this one, it is delightfully crazy! We visited here after taking the train from Dalat, unfortunately we only had just over 1/2 hour to see it before the train returned but made the most of it, if possible go for longer. There's so much detail everywhere. Climb the... More

Worth a trip, especially if you are a fan of mosaic. Incredible detail and workmanship. The train trip up to the Pagoda is interesting in itself.

The pagoda in the village of Trai Mat is down a lane way from the main road. It is about a 10 minute walk from the train station. It must be one of the most kitsch pafodas and temples we have seen in Vietnam. The decorations, using broken ceramics and beer bottles, is great. The temple itself is also well... More
