Place of tranquillity after all the hustle and bustle of the City. You will need to dress modestly to enter the Buddhist Temple or borrow a sarong. There are 150 stone steps which on a hot day seem many more - but trust me if...More

Visited via an organised tour of Nah Trang. Unfortunately we weren't allowed inside as they didn't have enough cover ups for everyone, as the place was very busy, so they decided to not give out any! Didn't have enough time to climb up to the...More

If you’re like me and you love a Buddha you mustn’t miss Long Son Pagoda. There are a few steps to the top but it isn’t a huge complex so you won’t need half a day here. Well worth it. You might get a little...More
