Very nice pagoda structure. The temple buildings around it also worth seeing. Great to also see the monks going about there daily life.

Beautiful pagoda and stunning views over Hue's wide and very lush river. We got to see the Buddhist monks chanting prayers prior to their lunch.

We stopped here after a short boat trip on the Perfume River. The grounds of this pagoda were some of my favorite of all the pagodas, temples, etc. that we saw on our trip.

Lots of stairs, so be ready with appropriate footwear. Evidently this sight has been well maintained by international donors.

Mystical place and well kept facility. The place isn't that big but you'll do some walking around the complex. Great place for pictures.

I was totally surprised at how much I loved this Pagoda. It is so serene (apart from all of the tourists) & beautifully scenic. Unfortunately, I went in the mid afternoon & the heat was unbearable so I had to cut my visit short. Have...More

Except for flashlight photography you can take camera and camera bag along. Although you won't be able to click images within the temple. Have a beautiful trip
Hi, I am thinking of visiting here as part of an organised trip. My friend is 72 and worried there are no handrails or assistance on and off the boats. I'm surprised it is described as difficult as it is a trip organised by Saga, so opinions welcomed please. Thank you in advance!
