This is a very beautiful little temple but it is a bit out of the way - especially if you are walking the city. Other than the main tower there is not much to see. Pretty though it may be. We had a walk and then went into a near by coffee house to rest our feet.

After visiting the Ho Chi Minh historical site, this is worth the 30 minute walk along nice wide sidewalks and past many beautiful French-built colonial mansions, now used as government buildings. Unfortunately the government does not allow pictures to be taken of any of these buildings, as there are “no-photos allowed” signs posted everywhere along the street. The tower pagoda... More

The name of this pagoda is translated to English as Guarding the Nation. It is located in the middle of Hoan Kiem lake, connected by a beautiful red wooden bridge. If you come here early in the morning, you'll see lots of locals doing morning exercises. It's fun to watch. And you can have a walk around the lake too... More

This pagoda is very beautiful and sets on the lake banks. It has many towers were the monks are cremated and placed to rest. An important site to visit and it does not take much time.

A 20 minute walk from Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum - a cultural symbol of VN Buddhism. A quiet pieceful place and one worth looking round. Be sure to check the opening times as they close for a 2 hour lunch.
