I am glad I did this and the mountainside was very foggy and damp. Being a westerner and not used to the climate I was soaking wet with perspiration upon climbing the last steps to see the reclining Buddha. Worth going once.

Really worthwhile to visit, but be warned there is a lot of stairs, so wear comfortable shoes and take a water bottle with you. Absolutely worthwhile to go right to the top.

TripAdvisor needs to consolidate these 3 listings because they are all the same thing. It makes planning more difficult than it needs to be. That said, this is an attraction that you just HAVE to see in person as pictures do not do it justice. The Reclining Buddha is majestic in it's sheer size! You will have to ride up... More

Nice half day excursion south of Phan Thiet (about an hour or so) through some interesting small towns and dragonfruit fields. The cable care and monastery om the 500m mountain are interesting as a side attraction and change of pace away from the beach and night life of Phan Thiet. The giant Buddha is certainly a sight to see in... More

Not as interesting as what you think Very faraway from the city and nothing to see but renovated huge statues (basically 5 statues only) I mean if you have been to other places like Ngong Ping 360 in Hong Kong or Owakudani in Japan....you will never appreciate this place anymore. Just skip it. You may think you have just wasted... More

Do not forget to visit this interest place, I called Mr. Chau at 099.131.7790 and pay only 60usd for the tour by jeep, many other tour offices showing double price.

The budda is located in a mountain and is 43 m. Is a fantastic atmosphere to be there ...go early in the morning if you want to feel the spirit of meditation. After 10 a.m . is everything in russian hands.

Very beautiful place to visit in Phan Thiet, Buddha statue here is the biggest one in Asia. on the way to come here, many strange things symbol for Viet Nam's countryside: dragon trees, birds, monkeys, etc... Climbing up Takou Mountain, beside looking at the beauty of forests and bowing to Buddha, visitors can also contemplate the giant "Sakyamuni statue entering... More

A quiet trip to break from the regular bustle - It is a nice drive through the countryside from Mui Ne to get there – The cable car may be a bit scary for those not comfortable with heights – I am usually not to bad but the swaying had me gripping onto my seat. Up the top it is... More
