Good trip

My guide picked me up ,on time where we proceed to the boat which was about a 2 hour bus journey We then got on a small rowing boat which was roses by a small Vietnamese woman !! During the 1 hour boat ride you get to pass Loads of great scenery and a lot of good photo opportunities The major downside is the seats in the boat are really small , and there isn’t much room to move about When we reached are destination we were first shown a citified small pagodas Then we wet given a choice either a cable car or hike , myself and a father and daughter decided to hike up ( and I on my one decided. to hike back down ) On the way up there are loads of Great photo opportunities ( again ) Are guide was very good by the way

Good trip but could be better

The trip to Perfume Pagoda was very good value for money, covered all the main areas around the locality with excellent knowledge and information provided by the tour guide... Nice river ride for approx with marvelous scenery . 1 hour followed by the cable car up the mountain to view the cave pagodas. Don't be fooled by the thought of wonderful views by walking it!! . There have many small food store. It's very noise and crowded and this is a small negative espect so you should use the cable cars or you may regret what you see. On the return down the mountain by cable car , you have more time to enjoy the areas on the lower sectors
