What people are saying:

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!
