A lovely place to relax, a few km from downtown, reachable by cable car or by road (100 dong by metered taxi ). A small flower garden to walk around, and a view overlooking the scenery.

It's a beautiful and tranquil place. Picturesque place that you definitely need to go to and walk the grounds. There is also a little lake located at the end.

Make sure you make use of the cable car when visiting this temple. The views during the 'ride' are awesome. At the monastery, you'll find peace and beautiful gardens. There are a few buildings with temples or shrines to see. If you have time, do the walk down the hill to see the waterfront and the boats on the lake.

A bit too touristy to get the real feel behind the place, but enjoyed the cable car, and was a pleasant way to spend the afternoon.

This pagoda is incredibly serene, despite the volume of tourists. It sits high on a mountain with a sense of peace around. Priests and nuns still live there and they grow the most beautiful array of flowers.
