The Buddha itself is nice. The grounds are fine but the atmosphere is sort of ruined by ladies trying to sell incense sticks and from reading other reviews are purely to rip you off. Wore a cover up that covered my knees and shoulders and...More

Amazing Buddha at the top, and also the sleeping buddha a few steps down, could be hard to miss but look for it.

A bit far from downtown beach area, so taxi is required. If you have not seen temples and Budda’s before will find interesting. If you been to Thailand, or Chinese temples or HK Budha... this is is very average.

Impressive Buddha statue and nice view, it was peaceful when we went. It looks like recently someone has systematically smashed every grave, they are all broken with piles of rubble everywhere, this was sad to see.

This was a nice pagoda and the huge white Buddha at the top was worth the walk. There are a lot of steps but it's worth it when you reach the top.

YES but the crowds are already here and the trains and planes are Full ! If you have not already made your travel arrangements then you are not coming to Nha Trang and your question becomes superfluous !
