This was a beautiful place to visit. I wish I wore more modest clothes (as in long pants and sleeved shirt), so I could go inside the worship areas. But there was heaps to see outside too and plenty of amazing statues and shrines.

Same as Lady Buddha pagoda in Danang, this is a nice pagoda for Tourists to visit and take photos. Recommend to wear sport shoes as you need to walk up to the white statue.

Long Son Pagoda has two sites to see; the sleeping Buddah and the sitting Buddah. They were both beautiful and pristinely kept. It's free to enter the grounds, which is always nice. There are restaurants on the bottom and the very top of the property, both are vegetarian friendly. You can also buy fresh coconut to quench your thirst after... More

The temple grounds, building, setting and statue are all impressive. If one has mobility issues getting up the 70+ stairs to the statue is very difficult, the stairs are uneven and in the heat its tough. If one gets to the top there is a great reward in getting some great pictures. The temple downstairs contains great pieces of art... More

We found this place super crowdy and if you have time you may visit this place. The statue of white Buddha is undoubtedly beautiful rest nothing special about the place.

We visited Long Son Pagoda and the sleeping Buddha. We actually first saw the Buddha from our hotel roof top and decided to venture. The giant Buddha is great to see and a must if in Nha Trang.
