What we say: 3 stars

A short trip outside downtown Saigon, Quoc Tu Pagoda is one of the largest Buddhist temples in the city and is a relatively new one, built in the early 1960s.

The main complex of the pagoda spans seven storeys, with the first two open to the public. Visitors are given access to view the beautiful Buddha statue that is the centrepiece of the pagoda and allowed to walk the grounds.

Although the outside area is usually dominated by street peddlers, as the temple is situated next to a children's amusement park, the interior is quite clean and the surrounding gardens and lakes make this one of the better pagodas in the city for those looking for a relaxing stroll.
