I spent 3 full days in Vung Tau, travelling around on a rented push bike.....a great way to see this coastal city. One place I visited was the Statue of Mary. The climb to the statue is fairly easy. The climb passed the statue to the top of the mountain is a strenuous one. Great views from the top and... More

We visited this place after go along many beaches in Vung Tau: the Front beach, the Back beach, Pinapple beach... We are Buddhist but its quite peaceful place to relax for a while, what a pity it's not sunny so our pix taken here could not be nice with many colorful flowers as in fact.

I visited here just before sunset. A beautiful and serene place with not too many visitors. A calm place for reflection amongst Maria and child and other biblical images. Very scenic views of the ocean are an added bonus.

Hike up to the left side to see smaller statues of Jesus's life on the way up. I went up the center and down the looker's left and realized I was hiking it backwards only after the fact. Very cool statues, I'm not very religious but it is a very peaceful place and gives you a great view of the... More

Vung Tau has a lot of temples, mostly Buddhist, but also churches and two imposing statues of Christ and Maria with the Child. The church of Bai Dau with the giant statue of Maria with the Child is a landmark of the city. If you go uphill on the stairs to the base of the statue, there you’ll understand how... More

For believers it should be a nice experience going up the hill, where you can live Jesus path through the statues. Go up the left side of the hill and go down on the right side, so you can live it right. When you got up left, go a little bit upper, don't stop at the big Maria, so that... More

The park in front of the statue is really nice. You can even enjoy the view of the beach from the high when climbing up to the statue. Quite far from the central.

I didn't all up as it was really humid and hot day. There were plenty who did go. I opted to take a picture from the low ground. Worth a look though.

We only expected to see the statue of Mary but were surprise that there much more statues on another hill next to it. with statues of Christ being sentenced to die on the cross, & various stages as he carried the cross up the hill. The hillside is well planted with trees & can be quite cool. Red frame of... More

It is a beautiful and peaceful place! we came here to pray and commemorate the passion of Jesus Christ. We stopped for praying in every scene, the scene is very touching and heartwarming for Catholic. There are several beautiful statue illustrating the 12 station of the cross. Location on a hill but still easy for walk into the top.
