Long Son Pagoda is definitely worth a visit. We visited during a weekday and early enough that there are very few tourists. The climb to the sitting giant Buddha could be tough for some, but worth it. Please observe the strict dress code, which to...More

Long Son Pagoda isn't the most beautiful temple we've seen, but it is still worth a visit. The elaborate temple itself, the giant white sitting Buddha, and the reclining Buddha are interesting and ideal for a photograph. Be forewarned that the clothing restrictions for entering...More

There are many things to do there and the pagoda isn't so nice either. Only the big buddha above are the main attraction. Not worth visiting for me.

Beautiful white Buddha temple. Best to go there early morning or evening. Not a good idea to go during the midday cos it was pretty hot. Part of temple is currently under renovation works. However for Asians please be wary of some local ladies in...More

The monastry is situated right in the city centre, with the big Buddha statue at the hill top behind the temple. I am more attracted to the facts that the historical root of VN has so much in common with China.

Pop in if you’re passing but I wouldn’t go out of my way to visit this pagoda. There are plenty of more interesting pagodas to see in Vietnam. I guess it makes a change from the beach but do dress appropriately. That means no shorts...More
