Perfume pagoda tour – a tour of beauty landscape and peaceful mind. Looking forward to enjoying a day around Hanoi? Tour to perfume pagoda would be the selective choice for travelers. This is one of the wonderland for buddhists. The annual festival in Perfume Pagoda is essential for locals. People come here to pray for their lucky new year and the festival lasts at least 3 months. To the couple wishing to have baby, they come here to ask for, and people can not explain the reason why many of their wishes come true.
There exists the pagoda inside the cave, the cave not at the foot of mountain but on the top of mountain. To reach the Perfume pagoda we have to go there by cable car or walking up. Cable car is recommended in wet season.

1 day trip with lots of fun. We understand more about one of the holly land of local. Recommended this tour.


It was a few hours in a bus but I really enjoyed going here – the boat ride was lovely amongst the limestone karsts and the pagodas are so cool – a pagoda in a cave in the middle of nowhere is something that has to be seen to be believed. A weird experience but a great insight into Vietnamese culture. The weird little plastic babies that people put in there to get good luck for having a baby makes it even weirder/better. I suggest walking up and then getting the cable car down, it’s only 60,000vnd or something but it gives you great views of the mountains that the walk up doesn’t.


I did Sapa 3 days 2 nights tour with Aroka and having 1 day free. I chose Perfume pagoda and was happy with my choice. It is so so pretty area. The only thing that make me not happy was tip for the rower. I gave tip anyway but they should not ask for.


Terrific trip in Hanoi
