Very wonderful inside the pagoda along with several old huge trees. A place that is good for spiritual retreat. Located right in Westlake and there's an ice-cream shop opposite and that is extremely popular named "Kem Ho Tay", tasty!! and cheap!

We were enthralled seeing the many individuals using the temples. We felt uneasy being vacationers with cameras, in this part that had apparent religious significance for a lot of individuals. It was, however an excellent experience.

We had very nice visit to Tran Quoc Pagoda, it's located in the small island in West lake. The pagoda is so nice.
