This is a recently built temple complex, located about 25 KM from Tam Coc. If you have day to spare, it’s worth visiting there. I did a solo motorcycle tour just to enjoy the ride and site seeing. Motorcycle parking costs 15.000 and the two...More

This place is spectacular! It’s hard to believe there’s no entrance fee. The only things that cost are the optional electric car (30K, do it) that takes you to the southern end of the pagoda, and entering the stupa (100K), which has an elevator that...More

Well worth a two hour visit. I have never seen so many Budda statues in one place There are thousands. The pagoda is amazing with an elevator to the 12th floor. Spectacular views. Inexpensive visit for two at 220VND. Nov 18

The location on tripadvisor is incorrect, but the route is correct most of the way. About 2km before the location you will see a sign “left to Bai Dinh Hotel” or “straight for Bai Dinh parking”. Go straight! Once you park walk past the toilets...More
