Lovely place! It’s on the mountain you can enjoy the view overlooking small city of Châu Doc. We went there at sunset so the view was even better. Pagoda is beautiful. Worth to climb up to the top.

Beautiful place. The chimes that sound in the wind made the perfect soundtrack to this beautiful place. Cool tunnels to explore.

This was the highlight of Sam Mountain, which gave amazing views which equaled the extravagance of the pagoda. Lots of Buddhas to check out, as well tunnels.

Amazing place to discover, typically Vietnamese. We suggest to climb by your own to discover all the small sanctuaries, shops, houses, on the road. Of course, no major masterpieces, but a special atmosphere. If you are tired, you may ask for a moto to come...More
