Much better than I thought possible! Such awesome views and quite a long cable car journey so definite value for money. Get the return pass as I only got one way and had to pay a taxi back as too far to walk. Plenty of time to get cable car to Lake. See the temple and close by water fall... More

A nice temple and gardens, though not particularly spectacular, spoilt by too many tourists. The cable car ride to it is very good though as is the lake, a 5 minute walk through the temple gardens.

70,000 dong for return ride in cable car is the cheapest fare for cable car I've ever seen. Although the view from the cable car is not the most beautiful, but the monastery on the hilltop is another way round! The view of the lake and also the monastery itself. Don't doubt it, just go see yourself!

If you like peaceful hilltop views out over the lake surrounded by pine trees, cicadas and birds singing, cool bonsai trees, flower gardens and fresh air? Then this is for you! The grounds are quite big and we easily spent an hour looking around. Not overly touristy (we went in august) which we love and the return gondola is great... More

I rode a motorbike to this place and it was a great ride. There weren't many cars and bike on the road. I took a cable car and the view was amazing.
