The Perfume Pagoda, Hanoi

See the Hanoi Guide ›
Vietnam's insider take:

The Perfume Pagoda, said to be named after the spring blossoms that scent the air around it, is one of the most important Buddhist sites in Vietnam. Every spring after the Vietnamese New Year, thousands of pilgrims come here to pray for health and prosperity. Part of a complex of temples built on limestone cliffs, the Pagoda is a two-hour drive from Hanoi, followed by a one-and-a-half-hour boat ride and a one- to two-hour walk up the mountain. Various operators offer day tours, covering transportation and entry fees (ask at the tourist office or your hotel).
