Long Son Pagoda is definitely the star attraction of Vietnam! The temple is so dreamy with its gorgeous colors, dragon statues, and bright flowers. Behind it towers a giant Buddha which you can climb up to the top of for views of the city. A great experience not to be missed!

If you go for a walk up Yersin, through central Nha Trang you'll eventually find yourself at the Long Son Pagoda. Long Son is a Buddhist temple that suffered quite a bit of damage in the Vietnam war, but has since been brought back to its former glory. The temple itself can be found near the road, but for those wanting to experience some fantastic views of Nha Trang and its surrounds, take the stairs to the right (152, to be precise!) and you’ll find yourself at the foot of a massive statue of the Buddha. Keep an eye out for the young touts at the temple, as they will probably try and take you on a ‘free’ guided tour. While you’re not obliged to pay up, they WILL put the pressure on at the conclusion of the tour!

The Long Son Pagoda is a really beautiful temple. It's a very spiritual place so it's a place to show respect. You will notice that not just the munks but also most of the Asian tourists pray and worship when they're visiting.
If there's a negative thing to point out its all the litter and garbage around. Especially on the top around the big white Buddah statue. It's a small kiosk up there but people never clean up their mess and it's literally floating with garbage. It's really sad to see.
