Perhaps the most renowned pilgrimage site in the country's northern section, Perfume Pagoda features a series of temples and shrines set into a rocky cliff face. Thousands of devotees come to this Buddhist complex, boasting cave temples, classic wooden pagodas, and towering stone gates.

  • It is one of the most famous worship place for Vietnamese. Recommended to wasting your time if you have nothing to do to reach the place by boat. It will take about one and half hour. Staying in the boat and enjoy the nature and nice view along the river which is an old style to come to this place. But if hurry, there is the road way also reaches to this place.
  • Amazing! Very beautiful to visit. You can go hiking up the mountain. As said there are lots of shops, however most of them were closed when I visited the mountain. Taking cable car back gives you a beautiful view over the mountains. Perfume Pagoda itself is amazing!
