The pagoda and the reclining Buddha statue are the highlights of Ta Cu mountain. A good climb and relax atmosphere once you reach the top. Also must visit the pagoda/temple dedicated to the founder monk who established the area in 17th century.

Such an unspoilt uncovered place to visit. Trip highlight for me for sure. Cable car to get up there too - what more could you want?!

I really enjoyed the red dunes. We arrived early in the morning and had an excellent time sliding down the side of the dunes. The red dunes are quieter then the white dunes and also don't have all the noise of the quad bikes.

I am glad I did this and the mountainside was very foggy and damp. Being a westerner and not used to the climate I was soaking wet with perspiration upon climbing the last steps to see the reclining Buddha. Worth going once.

Really worthwhile to visit, but be warned there is a lot of stairs, so wear comfortable shoes and take a water bottle with you. Absolutely worthwhile to go right to the top.

TripAdvisor needs to consolidate these 3 listings because they are all the same thing. It makes planning more difficult than it needs to be. That said, this is an attraction that you just HAVE to see in person as pictures do not do it justice....More
