Really nice pagoda - worth visiting. You should reserve at least 3 or 4 hours for the tour (we had only 2 and we did not have time to visit all pagodas). Going up to the tower is not included in the entrance ticket and costs extra 50.000 VND but it is worth it. The view is very nice.

We saw many temples and pagodas prior to our visit to Bai Dinah and thought it might be redundant. Not so! Though it is new, it is very interesting because it is largely a local scene. The temple complex is visited by Vietnamese families--we saw absolutely no foreign tourists. Plan on two hours to visit all the levels of temples. Of all the Buddahs we saw in temples in Southeast Asia, these were the most glorious. The scenery from the complex is extraordinary--you look out over the karst limestone mountains and a large lake. If you have the energy, you can climb to the top of the tallest pagoda in Vietnam. Combine this visit with the Trang An boat ride and you have experienced Vietnam at its dreamiest.
