  • We'd an easy cruise holding a dragon boat along the Perfume River. A fast stop to go to Hon Chen temple. Probably the most sacred 1 under the Nguyen dynasty. Really great visit with our neighborhood.....  more »
  • Very disappointed. Nothing of much relevance to see - only spent about 10 minutes there! The trip up the perfume river was much more enjoyable.  more »
  • Unless you have an tour guide or a book that can explain the history and religion of the place I would give it a miss. Is a small, average looking temple and you can see everything within 5 minutes. The cost of entry, relative to other attractions in Vietnam, is every high. Have been to much more impressive and larger temples that charge no entry fee. If your boat tour stops here you can get some nice landscape pictures of the river and mountains from the steps without paying anything.
  • Beautiful scenery. You can have a wide bird eye view of the river from the harbor as well. However the road leading to the place is quite narrow and quite dangerous as well. Better go by motorcycle or boat for safety.
