Fodor's Expert Review Long Son Pagoda
Climb the 150 steps, breaking halfway to view the 262-foot-long white statue of sleeping Buddha. At the top of the hill, visit the Long Son Pagoda and sitting Buddha. This site is free to the public—watch out for the hecklers and scammers asking for miscellaneous fees, and the pushy women selling fans. The panoramic views of rice fields and the city below are absolutely breathtaking.
