View monks daily life

One of the stops along the Perfume River tour. Pagoda still houses monks and if your timing is right you can respectfully observe the monks during their daily worship

One of my favorite places during our Vietnam journey. We came for sunset. The pagoda and the perfume river look amazing in the golden sunset light.

Beautiful place to visit, you can go from hue by boat from 6$ or using a taxi from 4$ but I recommend everyone to go by boat, they're traditional and it's a very calm trip , and at sunset it is BEAUTIFUL!

This was an interesting dragon boat ride to the Pagoda. On arrival a short walk up stairs to the Pagoda & other interesting sites. Dragon boat owners only allowed half an hour to look before return, which is not long enough. At least 1 hour is required to look about, but it is worth while.

Lovely pagoda and peaceful. Got there by river boat which was very pleasant. Stalls outside pagoda if you want souvenirs. Pagoda itself is very quiet and peaceful and has a great view of the river and the city.

We enjoyed our visit to this complex set attractively on the banks of the Perfume River. As you climb the entrance steps to the tower you get good views of the river. The pagoda is set in peaceful grounds that are enjoyable to wander around in. Certainly worth a visit especially if you can add in a trip on the... More

We travelled by dragon boat up the Perfume River to the Pagoda. We were lucky enough to have a guide that made sure we didn't miss anything. We were also there when the monks were chanting before lunch which was amazing! The grounds themselves are beautifully kept. I really enjoyed this visit. Be prepared for the sales pressure by the...
