  • We got out of the center by taxi and not expensive. At the entrance pester the locals to buy aroma sticks. Admission is free. All went by 30 minutes to get to the temple put on your pants, and the girls do not forget to take a headscarf, or they will not let. And so you can and so walk around the territory.

  • Long Sean's Pagoda translates as a flying dragon. From the pagoda you can get to the temple on a staircase consisting of 144 steps. Whoever overcomes this ladder on foot is cleansed of sins. Along the way you can find a statue of a lying Buddha. At the top of the mountain is a statue of a Buddha sitting in a lotus pose. There is a beautiful garden at the pagoda.

  • Nice temple. One of the two temples to visit in Nha Trang. Worth a visit! Only 35 dong to get in which is a bargain. Don't forget it is a temple so you will need to wear appropriate clothingbut if you forget, they do have robes you can borrow. Some of the building has been restored but it's been done in a way that looks like it's original features. The massive white Buddha alone is beautiful and you don't have to walk up a hill for hours to see it.
  • Very good place to visit. Sadly the Pagoda was being repaired but we could visit the big Buddha. Close to the entry there is a very good vegetarian restaurant. Inside the big Buddha there is a place to worship very peaceful. Very recommended.
