  • We visited it by dragon boat and couldn't enjoy the beautiful grounds because my son didn't want to look around. Nice location overlooking the river. The pagoda itself is beautiful and unique. Ancient Pagoda with special architecture. Very historical. Entrance was free.
  • Iconic and historical pagoda in Hue. It was build by Lord Nguyen Hoang and been there along history until now. Not many things to see but the view across Perfume River is just too good! No entrance fee but only pay for parking fee.
