This Temple is small, but surprisingly serene.The inside boasts some neat art and 2 giant horse sculptures. There is also a large replica of a Junk boat and some sweet lanterns! This Temple is also free if you go as the sun is setting (it was when we went anyway)

This temple is in one of the main streets, very pretty. You need to have purchased tickets to get in worth buying a set of tickets which get you into the main bits in town. In this temple be aware you quickly go through to museum so will cost second ticket. Very tranquil. Pretty flowers and caged birds. Some of the planter areas quite interesting. Worth a visit

This place struck me as very Chinese in style. As the festival of Tet was fast approaching, there were plenty of flowers and lanterns decorating the place. Tet is the Vietnamese word for Chinese New Year.The temple is over 200 years old and has been well preserved.

It's clean, bright and the carvings and workmanship is really beautiful. Well kept and maintain through the course of a few centuries or so, a definite must see especially for the cultural-religious enthusiasts.
