“Cheap, quick visit to get some cultural history”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

It's easy to get to, and inexpensive to get in. You won't likely spend more than an hour here, but it's nice to get a little bit of local education and to also see the great views of the city. There are a couple of rooms where people will go to pray and burn incense, so be mindful of which one you walk into -- there is one for men and one for women. Appropriate clothing that covers your shoulders and legs need to be worn, and don't forget to take your shoes off.

It's not very big, but you'll get some nice photos and see some historical pieces. There's the inevitable line of vendors near the entrance, ready to sell you something.

“Nice view”
Reviewed February 27, 2013

The entry is around $1 and the climb upstairs was worth it. You can see the panaromic view of the city and the sea. Since we had recently visited the Angkor Wat we were not so spellbound by the structures. But for any newbee the structures would be a treat. Theres a small museum of statues of Hindu Gods and Godesses whom we could quickly relate to. Overall a nice place to hang around and not so crowded.

“Nice view, peaceful place”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

The entrance fee was 1 usd and worth every cent. The area is nice, there are heaps of good photo locations to get memorable pictures.
The view towards the city was nice. It was not so crowded when we got there just before lunchtime and the noiselevel was somewhat low (compared to the city).
The arts they showed outside on some stands were impressive and people are very welcoming.

“Historical journey”
Reviewed February 23, 2013

Good signage, accessible, but not mobbed when we were there. Has some interesting things you don't often see in temples in VNM. And there were dancing girls - always interesting to see the differnces.
