  • We booked a night tour to see the pagoda at night and it was far beyond expectation. We were the only ones in the pagoda and it was magical to see all the beautiful Buddha statues and towers

  • Absolutely huge pagoda complex. The enormity and amount of sites are just mind boggling. It will take at least 6 hours to walk through. Took us 3 hours to see the main attractions. My favorite are the thousands of statues each depicting a monk with uniquely crafted characteristics. I hope you are fit if you want to explore this place. There are also electric cars going around to make it easier. I would recommend visiting in the morning when you still have energy and then doing the Trang An boat tour the afternoon. We explored this complex in the afternoon, so we were already tired when we got here and couldn't fully enjoy this beautiful place. You need loads of energy to see this magnificent area.
  • A very interesting and huge place to visit. Make sure you get the electric car ticket that allows you rides to all the different sites within the area. The views from the top of the Pagoda are the best in the region and allow for great photo opportunities.
