  • We went for a morning walk up the hilss with two locals we befriended whilst there. Best way to see the monkeys as cars make too much noise. You can stop on the road and see them in the trees...  more »
  • Don't forget to search for the beautiful monkeys, at the top of the mountain there is a pretty statue of Confucius playing chess, at the other side there is a beautiful view of the South China sea  more »

  • Quite extraordinary temple with pagoda, and 100 foot tall Female Buddha statue in shimmering white. Fantastic view over the bay towards Na Trang city.
  • We arrived at 17:40 and it was already close, so it may close at 17... We felt disappointed :(
