At the top, you may feel like you’re on some sort of bizarre Hollywood set where you’d expect Indiana Jones or Lara Croft to meet a spiritual Bruce Lee. Here spirituality lives in harmony with nature.

Perfume Pagoda is located approx 65 km (40 mi) south of Hanoi, up to a 2 hour bus ride. Be prepared: in such remote, captive locations it is common place to find an over-abundance of ‘enthusiastic’ hawkers; touts and a good tour guide will serve you well. Avoid visiting during religious holidays!
