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

Having travelled extensively in Asia I found the site a bit disappointing and requiring significant maintenance. I mean the pagoda has been replaced by corrugated iron boards ! hopefully temporarily. The ride from the phan thiet hotels is a pleasant 45 minutes through the countryside and dragon fruit plantations. The site is well organized and the entry ticket buys you... More

A cable car takes you up the mountain and you still have a few hundred steps to walk. So you need a reasonable fitness level or just rest when you are tired. But it is so worth the climb when you get to the top. The reclining Buddha is a sight to behold. I can't imagine the effort that went... More

We did this independently, but it might be better to go as part of an organised trip, as our driver wasn't sure where he was going and by the time we arrived we had to really hoof it. The last cable car returns at 5pm and we managed to just get the last one up. The statue is amazing and... More
