Decent enough, fairly interesting place to visit. Fairly small and rather busy. Good to see if you're going to Hue

We visited this pagoda after a full day tour of Hue. It was probably the least interesting 0f them all. Very little information signs in comparison to other pagodas in hue. The river taxi to the pagoda made the journey worthwhile

Looking out over the perfume river this pagoda is a beautiful place to stop for half an hour and appreciate the diversity of Hue’s monuments. I thought the ancient bell was beautiful.

The highlight of my time in Hue, hire an entire boat for $15 or join others and take a leisurely cruise up river (or is it down river), pass by basking water buffalo, little motorised canoes, low-slung Mekong delta-type commercial boats and arrive at the...More
