On a hill, after about 800 steps is a mini version of the Christ Redeemer Statue. A Christian statue in the midst of all the temples and pagodas. The scenery going up was also really nice and the other statues along the way that spoke...More
The statue is worth visiting for the view. There are 811 steps but it was not that bad with good shoes. Our 70 year old grandmother was even able to do it!
The statue itself is closed during 11.15-13.30 so if you want to go...More
A must visited landmark when in vung tau, its like u have visited the christ the redeemer statue in rio, brazil. At the platform located in two palms of the statue you will witness a great view of the sea and and the city.
One of the most amazing attractions in south Vietnam. After a climb of 1000 steps the views are the most spectacular. On the journy to the top are reflection pools with biblical stories. Very well presented and displayed. The final climb up inside the statue...More
This was one of the attractions that made me decide to visit Vung Tau. Quite breathtaking to look at, especially from afar. It’s a pretty gentle 800+ step climb to the top so bring some water to stay hydrated! Consider visiting early to avoid large...More
Went to climb the steps towards the giant Christ statue overlooking Vũng Tàu and the ocean. The park is beautifully maintained and the staff were all very friendly. Entrance is free and there are a few souvenir shops and a restaurant (all very affordable). It's...More
Don't be alarmed by number of steps at all to get to the top...1000 to be precise and yes, it's hot so be prepared to sweat.
There are a number of different stops on the way up for a rest and photo opps.
There is no lift within the statue, like what the rest of the TA members replied. All in all, from the bottom of the hill to the shoulder of the statue, at least 1000 steps, if not more. My partner and I did not know... More
There is no lift within the statue, like what the rest of the TA members replied. All in all, from the bottom of the hill to the shoulder of the statue, at least 1000 steps, if not more. My partner and I did not know that the entrance to the statue would be closed at elevenish am (exact time: please see the photo that I have taken). So it was God’s plan that we were given 2 hrs to rest. We just looked around at the fort, cannons, ate ice cream while waiting for the entrance to reopen at one plus pm (see photo) . Now, the following is the best part, because you will be the first in queue to see the statue, you may be able to see the view from both sides of the statue’s shoulders. Do note that the stairway is extremely narrow and the “exit” to each side of statue needs some bending-down. No haversacks are allowed into the statue. My partner had to take care of my haversack while I climbed to Statue of Christ’s shoulders, when it was his turn to climb, he only managed to catch the view from one side of the shoulders. There were so many tourists stuck in a narrow staircase which needed to accommodate both arriving and departing tourists. Even when I was at the shoulder, a Korean lady tapped on my arm and spoke to me in Korean, asking me to allow her to take my place in a coaxing manner.
