A real cultural trip for us! I didn't expect to see any remains of historical and Chinese temple in the city. A rare find! It was close to a busy main road which was packed with motorcyclists on the move. I could hear the noises from their running motors... However when I was inside I could experience peace and quiet....

We liked the altar verymuch. The sound of school children next door added a different atmosphere to the solemnity within. Our guide Ms Trinh requested the attendant to light an insence coil. The insence coils when hung from the top enchors comes down like a cone and is supposed to keep burning for more then a week. I was attracted... More

This temple is probably the most interesting one we've been to out of the 3 countries we've visited (Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam). Lots of small details and nooks and crannies to explore.

We were brought here as part of our tour so wasn't really sure what to expect as we hadn't sought it out on our own. Approaching from the outside it didn't look all that interesting or impressive but it was quite quaint and pretty on the inside. There is a lot of incense smoke in a not-so-well-venilated area so beware... More

We live in Beijing and who would have thought we would need to travel to Vietnam to see a truly old Chinese Temple. This is beautiful and well worth the visit - especially if you live in China. Most Chinese Temples have been destroyed thanks to Mao and what you see there today is 'recreated' to look old. This was... More
