This stop was included in a full day tour and polished a lovely day of visiting the tombs. The pagoda and grounds are gorgeous and the view over the perfume river is quite lovely. It isn't a must see by any means, but if you're doing a full day then it is a nice way to end the day.

Travel by Dragon boat to see this Pagoda so you get a lovely river cruise on the way. Read up on the history of this Pagoda to enjoy it the most. Well worth the visit.

Pretty pagoda situated at a high point overlooking the river. It is nice with a garden and pool in the back to walk around in too. In my opinion, though, it's not as impressive or stunning as the citadel or some of the royal tombs for those trying to squeeze things in.

Climbing the steps from the river, the Pagoda looks really impressive. The gardens behind are great to walk around and the view over the river is worth a photo.

It was great visiting this pagoda as it was situated near the river where the American and Vietnamese fought. It was pretty to see the view around it too.

The pagoda itself and the buildings inside are not that impressive compared to some other sites in Hue. But considering it is a very old place abd its location on the hill, the pagoda is worth a visit

This pagoda was a highlight in our trip to Hue, as it offers something a bit different. The tiered tower is quite beautiful and the trees surrounding the grounds make it very peaceful and serene. It's not the most elaborate or exciting, but definitely a sight worth seeing.

Take a river boat to arrive as view from river is great. Take taxi home as river cruise is bring. Linger going up the steps as views and photography are great. The pagoda itself is a wonder of fascinating design. In back is the famous blue car that the self-immolating monk took to Saigon. the Gardens are pretty and serene... More
