Con Son Pagoda Complex
Con Son was home to Nguyen Trai (1380–1442), the famed Vietnamese poet, writer and general. Nguyen Trai assisted Emperor Le Loi in his successful battle against the Chinese Ming dynasty in the 15th century. Con Son pagoda complex has a temple honouring Nguyen Trai atop a nearby mountain. It’s a 600-step climb to reach it – a serious workout.
