We took a dragon boat trip up the river to visit the pagoda which was enjoyable as it was very hot. 8 dollars for a two hour trip.

You can get a boat ride from the center to here, It is a typical temple but has an interesting display about one of the monks during the 70's. It is near the old car.

We really enjoyed our visit to the Things Mu Pagoda. It had a lovely atmosphere and was a really enjoyable experience. Time it to avoid the hottest part of the day and you will enjoy it even more. Would definitely recommend.

This is a lot different to anything I have seen in Vietnam so far. It is definitely worth a visit, it is truly beautiful. You can get beautiful pictures of the Perfume River from this destination too.

This is really worth a visit, peaceful Pagoda with ancient Bonsai trees and wonderful views along the river. We got a taxi here and then rented a dragon boat along the river to the market, fun day our for a family with young kids.

The pagoda is an interesting architectural feature and this spot on the river has spectacular views, but the best part is seeing the living environment of the monks and seeing the artifacts of history that played a powerful influence on the war in Vietnam.

This was one of the stops on our tour I don't know if we would have gone there by ourselves but it was a nice place to see. The river makes for a lovely view.

I would definitely give it a miss. It is not easy getting on and off the boats and not worth the risk of injury. There are some paved areas within the Pagoda gardens and other parts not. It can be difficult underfoot at... More
