Very quite peaceful, serene place. It helps you reflect and truly spiritual place. The restrooms are a big mess.. don't even venture anywhere closeby.

Thien Vuong Co Sat pagoda is also called the chinese pagoda. We rented a motorbike and reached this pagoda (I think it is Truc Lam zen monastery that is accessible by cable car, not this one).
