Long Son Pagoda Tours

Founded in the 19th century, the Long Son Pagoda has been attracting travelers thanks to its stunning façade, traditional peaked roofs and ornately decorated mosaic dragons. Its peaceful interior pays homage to seven monks who lit themselves on fire during the 1960s in an act of protest. Travelers will find hand-carved busts of these men surrounding a massive white seated Buddha, who’s perched in a lotus blossom looking out at these martyrs.
 
Visitors can explore the grounds and make their way to the top of the hill and platform surrounding the massive Buddha, where incredible views of nearby towns and the Vietnamese countryside do not disappoint.

Practical Info

The pagoda is open daily from 7:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. and then from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m. Visitors should be aware of a popular scam that’s run by children outside the pagoda, in which they offer to show tourists around for free and then demand money at the end. Locals recommend turning them away.
