Walk down a sloping pathway to a gate/doorway and ring the doorbell. The door opened and we were encouraged in, we viewed the ancient little temple and then met Thay Vien Thuc in his studio/showroom, he showed us his work and explained what he does and also played some music for us. I purchased copies of his book which he... More

We visited this Pagoda as it was close to our Hotel but didn't spend more than 10mins there. There wasn't a great deal to see so I wouldn't recommend making the effort to visit if you are not in the area.

The main monk wasn't at the pagoda when we went. It is free to go in. Not a whole lot to see but we waited for a few minutes and rested before heading to the crazy house. The views are pretty and it's a good spot to feel the breeze although there really isn't anything special here.

Unlike the description, this is not a pagoda but just a small temple building. It's about 10-15 minutes walk from the "Crazy House" and is off the main road down a slope where the roundabout is. To our disappointment, the main attraction himself was not present. The brighter, newer coloured building to the left looked like living quarters. We were... More
