- Found this gem from local student tour called Saigon Hotpot. Need a tour guild to explain all the back ground and get the best experience.Written March 26, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- As someone who is of the Christian faith, I did not step into the Jade Emperor Pagoda with a mindset of a tourist, but instead as an outsider watching people practice their faith. I did not utter a word as I walked around listening to the chants they had playing. Observing how people pray and offer incense to the different statues inside the building was a unique sight to behold as their practices are foreign to me. Looking at those statues and how their constructed. This place does not allow you to take pictures in the building, and that’s for the better as it could not capture those feelings I had while walking through the building and seeing these events in person. This was the least touristy pagoda I went to throughout my whole trip, and I enjoyed it as it was outside my comfort zone. Though if you are looking to have a fun time, I would look elsewhere.
There was a little area outside that was pretty, but my cousin and I were knocking out all the tourist attractions in the day, so I didn’t spend much time there. We probably spent thirty minutes in the pagoda. I do remember having to duck my head to enter some doors as I was too tall (I'm six feet), and being overly cautious while walking up and down the stairs due to how unstable it looked.Written November 29, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- It is quite interesting to find a Hindu temple at the centre of Ho Chi Minh City. Mariamman Hindu Temple is a small shrine near major tourist attractions. Worth to stop by when around although nothing much is going on.Written December 2, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This is a photogenic Catholic church inherited from the colonial era. A bit away from the major tourist attractions in Saigon, Tan Dinh Church is impressive and perfectly Instagram-able. Beware that it is not open on weekends.Written May 20, 2023
- Initially I thought I was in the wrong place. A lady had to point me to the stairs at the back of the temple. Keep climbing till you reach the Buddha at the top, it’s worth itWritten November 4, 2023
- This pagoda is a little drive outside of the tourist area, but I thought it was very pretty and I was glad we went. There isn’t a whole lot to do besides walk around and take some photos, but it will take less than an hour and taxis a cheap.Written June 7, 2023
- This was a very nice temple and pagoda. We were lucky enough to be there when a monk was chanting which is such a beautiful sound. A little out of the way from the main tourist track, but taxis are cheap and its worth the time and effort.Written June 7, 2023
- This Buddhist Monastery is about a 50-60 min cab or scooter ride from district 1.
It’s a great place to spend 1-2 hours if you are interested in Buddhism or looking to capture some amazing photos.
I hired a scooter round trip for about 300,000 dong and the ride there was amazing in itself!
It would be very hard to find a way back without prearrangement.
This visit was one of the highlights of my 1 month in VietNamWritten February 6, 2023

- Built by the Tamil muslims the design of this moqsue is reminiscent of their typical style.Its located right in the middle of Quan(District)1.Simple places to eat close by are aplenty.Written January 3, 2020
- We walked up here from our hotel on our final day to get some exercise. Sorry to say it is nothing that special for us. The doors were closed over lunch time anyway. We could see the statue inside. Drop by if passing in the area but don’t make a particular journey to see.Written November 30, 2022
- This is one of the more popular temples in Cholon, Saigon's once-robust Chinatown. An establishment of immigrants of Fujian descent, Quan Am Pagoda is the place to worship the Goddess of Mercy. Both the ornate entrance and colorful interior are impressive. Like other Chinese religious sites in the area, it is rich in smell of incense.Written December 5, 2022
- Went there for 10 minutes to see the temple. It was quiet even though the streets were busy. You will have to take your shoes off to enter.Written February 10, 2019
- Our family of four visited this pagoda as part of a Saigon Hotpot free walking tour and our guide explained everything and we now understand the difference between a temple and a pagoda. This is a very good pagoda to visit.Written February 15, 2016
- A truly impressive pagoda, set 7 stories high (making it one of the highest, and largest, in the city), built in 1953 & located in the middle of suburbia. Many colourful, oversized religious figures are to be found here, along a beautiful Buddha statue at its centre. Additionally, you will find a shrine on the second floor, housing numerous miniature Buddha statues.Written December 7, 2019
