The Long Son Pagoda is a beautiful edifice decorated with mosaic dragons and adorned with traditional Buddhist motifs. The most striking feature is the enormous Buddha statue sitting on a lotus flower. The surroundings offer spell bindings views of the hills and nearby rural areas. The most moving part of the visit is sure to be the dedications to the monks who immolated themselves in protest of the Ngo Dinh Diem regime.

Pagoda was very cool to see, so big and well constructed. Good place that sells food right inside for really cheap. Check out there around lunch and get cheap eats. Free to get in.
The place is small yet worhh paying a visit. But please be aware of the incense distributing in the temple as it is not for free. The woman giving out this actually charged you a fortune. It costed me about 73myr for 2 of that. I'm not saying that I shouldn't be contributing to the temple, but the fees is just too unreasonable. I rarely comment on anything else. But this is ridiculous.
Good views on the top but full locals that take advantage of tourist. Dont pay for parking because its free they will ask you for 10k dong but pay only 5k. Also never accept incense from anyone near the budda. You thought its for free but no they will chase you after few minutes and ask 100k dong! They even ask 400k from a tourist for the incense. Discusting!
becareful of a girl giving out incense to tourist. dont take! its a scam. we thought its free because she hand the incense to us.. told us to take and go up to pay your respect to the Buddha. we thought she is part of the temple staff. but after going up she asked us to pay 100,000 vnd per incense stick. i hope she get arrested. ill hearted girl using Buddha to scam people. many tourist was scammed too.
Do not buy incense to the locals, they will scam you. We just witnessed a scene between locals and a chinese woman, the local was forcing the chinese to give her a money worth 500kvnd for 2-3pcs of incense! they tried to get back their money but the local is saying NO NO NO!! i felt sorry for the chinese. And also, i saw bunch of garbage, coconut etc on the other side. no one is cleaning the place. Its good that its free.
