Pagoda Sean Long (Long Son), Nha Trang

Пагода Лонг Шон, Нячанг, Вьетнам Pagoda Long Sean

Pagoda Sean long (long son, Long Son Pagoda) and the sitting Buddha is one of the most beautiful and revered pagodas in the province. Almost every tourist who arrived in Nha Trang, mandatory visits, along with a sightseeing tour or independently, and the place is really worth a visit.

It was built in 1886 on the mount Trai Thuy. During a severe storm in 1900, the pagoda was seriously damaged, and after the restoration of the temple, he was moved to the foot of the mountain, where stands to this day. According to some reports, in 1963, there was a mass suicide of monks who protested against the U.S. policy that supported the regime of the first President of South Vietnam NGO Dinh Diem (Ngo Dinh Diem).

The complex is very beautiful, and if you hurry, you can spend an hour walking slowly and resting in the shade of the trees. From the pagoda up the stone steps you can climb the mountain where there is a platform with a 14-metre white statue of Buddha sitting in a Lotus flower. The hotel offers panoramic views of the city, in turn, the pagoda is visible from almost all parts of the city.

Due to its popularity it is always crowded: many monks and locals ready to chat and make friends. There are, however, among the companions, and rogues who "caught" the newcomers, tourists, and quietly and unobtrusively carried out with unsuspecting tourists tours of the pagoda as if they are local officials. Then for their services they begin to demand donations of a few dollars, of course, folding the money in your pocket and not in the donation box. Beware also dressed nuns who "sell" to tourists in the form of tickets, cards, despite the fact that the entrance to the pagoda and climb the mountain to the Buddha made free.

Hours: daily from 8:00 to 20:00

Entrance fee: Inspection of the pagoda is completely FREE.

How to get there: long son Pagoda on the map. To get here from the tourist area is a 30-minute walk.

1 in Nachange before the new year, I loved it! Lived in a hotel Moritime. The hotel is nice clean, the rooms are cleaned every day. I don't like hotel on the outskirts and far from the city center, on foot you can walk 30 or 40, always used a taxi. Nearby there is a beach 100 meters away, but for some reason there is no one bathed, and we went closer to the center, where there are more people. Excursions like, for Souvenirs it is better to go to the evening markets where everything is cheaper and you can haggle! Tours can come in handy money, might drop a fortune to buy a good thing then you will need to run or ride. The fruit is better to buy the day before the departure at the Central market, very convenient. ...

1 > we were in Nha Trang at the end of September 2014, the weather was comfortable and in order to sunbathe and swim, and to go on tour, the rains were a few days that lasted literally for an hour. Lived in a wonderful hotel, Best Western Premier Havana Nhatrang, the view is breathtaking! This hotel is near the beach and has an underground walkway from the hotel to the beach (which is very convenient for the newly arrived tourists, which in the early days of the road crossing, full of scooters, very unnerving), in addition, the hotel is situated near the building of the Lotus (the main landmark in Nha Trang), night market and shopping centre. Not going to say much about the hotel, I can only say that everything in it is great: Breakfast, pool, Spa, views, rooms, restaurants. On the first day, after settling we ran to explore the surrounding area and sample local cuisine. Main dishes consist of rice, seafood, you can taste ostrich meat, crocodile, turtle soup, and, of course, soup, Pho. In many places there is menu in Russian language, which, at times, can amuse the tourist such dishes as "pork cheapskate" and "shrimp with radioactive equipment" (translation to Russian). Also on the first line there is a nice restaurant, where home-cooked meals: 250 000 VND (about 600 rubles), visitors have the opportunity to choose any raw foods, which are presented in the restaurant (a large number of fish, meat, seafood, sausages, etc.) and cook them on the grill located on each of the tables. You can also eat in the café located a little further from the city center, literally for 40 000 VND (100). I advise you to go ...
