Vietnam - Vung Tau - Jesus Monument Mountain

After breakfast, we started touring round Vung Tau. First stop is Jesus Monument Mountain.

On top of the mountain is the Statue of Jesus. It is 32 metres (105 ft) high, standing on a 4 metres (13 ft) high platform, for a 36 metres (118 ft) total monument height with two outstretched arms spanning 18.3 metres (60 ft). There is a 133-step staircase inside the statue. (source: wikipedia )

Did you spot people standing on the top of the shoulders of the statue? I did not make it to the top, too high and strenous for me.

I could only climbed only about 100 steps to this rest place where there are many status of Jesus and Angels.

Dong Ho, you are very right. I only spend five days in South Vietnam, did not go to Hanoi, the North part of Vietnam.
