We reached it in full day trip from Hanoi. There is 2-ways boat ride in big river with nice views around. Parfume pagoda is on the hill. I recommend to go up with lift and go down by walk. Entire journey was good, so if you have to spend one day out of bustling Hanoi it is a good choice.

The Perfume Pagoda in the off season is great. Very few people and the weather was comfortable.

It is a long bus trip followed by a 50 min long boat trip in an uncovered boat, so bring a hat or an umbrella. On arrival there are quite a few steps up to the restaurant where we had a nice Vietnamese lunch. We took the cable car up and down to the Pagoda as it was very hot. We were lucky that it was not crowded at all and the Pagoda is quite amazing. Next to the restaurant is a very beautiful temple which is worth a visit. Boat ride back was very enjoyable as it was not so hot anymore and the countryside is nice. Tiring but worth it.

Saw lot of complains in reviews. Must try to experience it yourself. Weather in 2nd week oct was cooling average 22degrees Celsius. From old quarter pick up take 2 hours drive, follow by metal bumps boat which sit maximum 6-8 people. The metal sit was really hard and solid. That the best for your butt training. :). Follow by Manual paddle by a Vietnamese lady. Have lunch with the dishes which bring Vietnamese cooking style. Overall was ok come with Big bowl of rice. Then Visited “heaven kitchen temple Buddhist temple” and took a cable car followed by perfume pagoda which is kind of peaceful and serenity. Your mind feel at ease.
