This is 4 things things in one. With great views from the top of the hill, the main temple, a reclining Buddha and the Buddha on top of the hill, it's a great site and well worth the trip.

Quite an interesting place to see. Very easy to find, short taxi ride from Nha Trang Central. Its free! When you enter a small prayer room under the Buddha an old man will hand you an incense stick, so please make a donation. Behind is a cemetery and I find it quite interesting as well.

This is another must in Nha Trang. The temple is very beautiful from the very first part. Its entrance has some statues of Buddha, the first temple is amazing with golden images, climb the stairs, pass the bell till you reach the top and see the big Buddha. Enjoy also the view from there of the city.

Climbing the many steps is hard work, so go slowly. That's what we did. It also adds to the spiritual experience. Rather than running up the many steps (we could not, even if we had wanted to do so, which we did not), take your time. It's much more satisfactory/spiritual. Photos do not do justice. The Buddha is big, my... More

Very well worth the steps to view the Buddha and view from the top of the hill the Pagoda itself is lovely although be aware that shorts, skirts are not allowed, so coverup if you would like to view all of it.

This Pagoda does not allow Chinese people to go in. The Statue of Budha looks new and it would be nice if you can capture one picture with Budha between blue sky

Long Son Pagoda was your usual Pagoda. After visiting Myanmar, all pagodas look similar. Most interesting part in pagoda was monk giving blessing to little boy as he left offering. I do love viewing the Buddha images and love the incense. I walked up many steps to view the White Buddha image that was established in 1963 to honor monks... More

We decided to walk from Nha Trang Beach to Long Son Pagoda, it took around 40mins and was worth the walk. Walking around the Pagoda was very peaceful, there are some steep steps to get up to see the Buddha at on the hill but it was worth the climb. Once up there you can get a panoramic view of... More

Just another pagoda which very much pales in comparison to those in China and Thailand. The Pagoda looks very new and there are touts seeking donation around the Pagoda by offering incenses.

Big white Buddah sits overlooking the city with the beautiful mosaic dragons that decorate the roof. Views are great and there is ample photo opportunity. Worth the hike up but it can be reached by car up a very tight narrow road.
