The 2000 steps are worth for a visit! Bring enough water with you and wear something that hide your knees and you will have a nice look over Vung Tau!

Made it to the Jesus's shoulder, 811 steps in total to get to the front of statue. Very nice view of VungTau and the sea as well. Very breezy and chill when walk along the mountain. The souviner shop at there selling quite cheap price compared to HCM city.

When you get to the top it is worth the walk up the 800 odd stairs with places to stop and take a rest on the way if you feel you need one. You can climb up inside the statue if you are suitably dressed but it is closed at 11.30 - 130pm enjoy.

You have to walk up there, but it's not too far for young people. They have several food or beverage stalls along the way. When you reach the destination, there's not much thing to do except enjoying the atmosphere there and the beauty of the statue.

Nice and peaceful place. On weekends and holidays crowded by locals - try to avoid visiting this place at that time. Statue is pretty high, so make sure you are able climb high stair. You can also go to Jesus shoulders, but the way there is really narrow. Entrance is free. Place is closed at 17.00, as I remember

Beautiful hike, great scenery, interesting music provided throughout the hike. Be prepared with conservative clothing and no "luggage" , as in no baby backpack carriers or backpacks. They are not permitted inside.

It was surely worth the 1000 steps, which weren't too hard to climb. It's free so definitely suitable for those travelling on a budget. And for those who want amazing views of Vung Tau, this is for you. It doesn't take that long to get up and fit for most people. However, do take a look at the weather forecast... More

Jesus is actually bigger than Christ the redeemer in Rio! Although the pedestal in Rio is slightly higher than in Ving Tau. Tough climb up, make sure you bring water. I'm quite tall so it was a bit of a squeeze up the spiral stairs to stand on the statues arms but well worth it. Fantastic view. Make sure you... More

A great little outing in Vung Tau. Would certainly like to point out that there are A LOT of steps to get to the top. However, it is definitely worth it once you get to the top! From what we experienced, apparently, you cannot go into the actual statue when it is raining, so perhaps check beforehand. Otherwise, recommended!
