Take in some temples

Cao Dai temple is Central Vietnam's largest, notes Lonely Planet, serving about 50,000 followers. “A sign reading van giao nhat ly (all religions have the same reason) hangs before the main altar,” and behind the gilded letters are “the founders of five of the world’s great religions: Mohammed, Laotse (wearing Eastern Orthodox–style robes), Jesus, a Southeast Asian–looking Buddha and Confucius.”

Phap Lam Pagoda is a two storey temple located near the city centre, writes Vietnam Pocket Guide. “The pagoda, built in 1934 and formerly known as Tinh Hoi Pagoda, is surrounded by large trees … the peaceful courtyard contains manicured gardens lined with Buddhist sculptures.”
