We have seen countless of temples and pagodas during our trip through Southeast Asia, and for us it was STILL worth visiting Bai Dinh. The temples may not be in use, but it’s a cultural heritage sight so it definitely has meaning. There’s a huge...More

Unless you've never seen a pagoda I'd suggest skipping this one. It's big, brand new and of little interest. There are much better things to do and places to visit in the area.

After a long day we decided to drop by Bai Dinh Pagoda at around 5.30 pm. We couldn't make it earlier, but we were really happy that we actually went. However, we would advice to go there around 4-5pm. Then you have enough time to...More

This pagoda complex is huge, and on a hot day can be quite a chore to see it all without getting weary. The statues are enormous with detailed workmanship. There are 300 stairs to climb lined with 500 smaller Buddhist statues before you see the...More

We spent a few hours wandering around this area and were still amazed by the end. The level of detail and the amount of statutes are incredible. Bring your walking shoes as there are a lot of steps and maybe go in the morning when...More

Surpassed expectations. Prepare to spend hours here. Amazing views, beautiful temples, Buddha statues, and flowers. Wear comfortable shoes. Bring snacks and drinks. Options are limited inside.

Very large temple complex. Would advise you get the electric car to the far end of the site and walk back the length to the start. Very impressive. Lots of shiny statues and temples. Quite new build which surprised me. Good way to spend a...More

If you need your Buddha fix then this is the place to visit. They just don't stop. The scenery is pretty amazing and all the trekking up the stairs is great exercise after all the delicious food. We were there for the celebration of 1050...More

The pagoda/temple was very impressive. Lots of ornate architecture around the pagoda. Nice area to take photos. We visited at around 9am and by 10am, it did get very busy with tour groups. I’d recommend to come early or late afternoon. You have to pay...More
