Very scenic location for a pagoda as it overlooks the Perfume River. Perfect for a late afternoon walk around the pagoda when the sun is softer.

I was disappointed. Yes, it's beautiful, but there are many other attractions in town which had a little more to see. Being one of the major sites, you have to go, but don't plan a long visit.

The pagoda is situated high on a hill over looking the Perfume River. The site is so tranquil, with pleasant gardens. A huge bonsai gardens. If your lucky , you'll witness the monks performing. At the base of the Pagoda, within the structure there is house a huge brass bell. It is one of the many tourist attractions in Hue.... More

You will go deeply into a silent air immediately with a lot of beautiful see-sights around. At the moment, you may feel you are flying. All troubles could be wipe out, all.

Amazing place well worth the visit! I am a T12 Paraplegic with limited mobility. Our tour guide ITC got us up the hill to the side gate of the temple access was relatively easy. apart from the Temple there is a great view of the river and back into the city! the trip only take 10 minutes from downtown Hue.

We went by boat down the perfume river. Not that exciting but a river trip. The pagoda we enjoyed really for its position on the river and the many photo opportunities .the monks were not around but you can hear them busy in the background.i think worth a visit for the position on the river and the view

It's nice for a quick peek on your way out to the tombs. The car the monk drove is pretty cool to see. We lucked out and the monks were praying when we arrived.

The pagoda is well preserved and pretty. Remember to walk to the back to see the car that The Most Venerable Thich Quang Duc took to go to the venue where he self-immolated.
