The beauty of water lily season on Hanoi’s outskirts
Riding a boat through Canary stream is the only way for visitors to access the sightseeing. Sitting on a wooden boat that is rowed by hand and watching the scenery can be the most peaceful moment during your journey to Perfume Pagoda.
Visitors to Huong Son Scenic Area (Perfume Pagoda), Chuong My District, Hanoi in early winter will have chance to admire the beauty of thousands of water lilies blooming in Canary stream.
Located 60 kilometers southwest of Hanoi, Perfume Pagoda is the famous Buddhist temple and spectacular place for sight-seeing in northern Vietnam, comprising a complex of pagodas and Buddhist shrines which are built into the limestone cliffs of Huong Son or Perfume Mount, along the mountain up to the peak.
Although tourists prefer to come here in spring, the Scenic Area still attracts tourists in other seasons thanks to its wonderful natural scenery.
