Phía trước và bên cạnh đều có không gian đẹp để dạo chơi, chụp hình.
Nhanh,tiện,ăn toàn
계단이 낮아 오르기에 힘들지는 않았습니다. 관리도 잘 되어 있고 조각상 위에서 보는 경치는 참 좋습니다. 평일 오전에 방문해서 괜찮았는데 사람이 많이 붐비는 시간에는 예수상안으로 올라가는 계단이 좁아 힘들것 같습니다.

A beautiful and peaceful place. You can climb up to the shoulder of the statue. Definitely worth a visit if in Vung Tau
Lên cao ngắm cảnh đẹp tuyệt vời
Pretty great view from inside the statue. Would suggest drinking enough water before arriving as they don't allow you to bring your water on the walk. It is 600 steps to the top, and it was hot. You can buy a drink or ice cream up there.

아름다운 바닷가에 예수님상이 특이했다. 방문날에도 정성으로 미사 드리는 모습이 너무 좋았다.

Leo bật thang tuy mệt nhưng vui
Good little hike, emphasis on little just when you think it's getting tough, you see the Statue. We only had a bit of a wait to climb the arms, because the stairs are so narrow people were coming down amd going up at the same time. Otherwise it's great! Lots of shops on the way up for drinks, ice cream and souvenirs.
Tổng cộng hơn 800 bậc thang, rất nắng, nên leo vào buổi sáng sớm. View thì rất đẹp nhé

Это очень красивое и душевное место с несколькими смотровыми площадками с обеих сторон. 800 ступеней ведут к статуе. Внутрь статуи можно зайти, подняться по узкой лесенке вверх к голове статуи. Вход в статую в закрытой одежде и без сумок. Вид впечатляет. Город, обе стороны пляжа. Обязательно к посещению! Вход бесплатный. Существует режим работы. На восход и закат там побыть не получится. С 7 до 16 и перерыв на обед.

Điểm du lịch không mất vé vào, chỉ mất phí gửi xe. Cần đi bộ từ chân núi lên, nếu vào ngày nắng thì sẽ hơi vất vả vì khá xa, nhưng đổi lại không khí thoáng đãng và cảnh đẹp. Đường đi sẽ có quán nước và quán kem nên có thể dừng lại nghỉ chân và ngắm cảnh. Đứng trên đỉnh núi sẽ nhìn thấy biển xanh, cát trắng, rất bõ công đi một đoạn đường núi dốc.

天辺まで登りきりましたが‼️ メッチャ風が強くチョット怖かった 体力不足にはキツイ811段 しかし、待っている景色は格別 ️ 半島の突端と言うこともあり‼️ ヤハリ砲台アリ。 像内へは、靴下脱いで登頂可能。 不要なものは下に置いてこよう。 持って上がる余裕はありません。 素直に警備の人の言う事聞こう。

Dont be scared of the 800 steps. the steps here are half the size of what you considered a normal "steps". and the wind will keep you cool all the way up, so just headup to jesus, he will reward you with beautiful scenery along the way, plenty of spaces to take a break mid way, there must be like 4 or 5 spots every 300 steps with water and ice shop. A prominent must go spot / location to check in Vung Tau. p/s: Jeus is so cool with 2 giants cannon next to his feet.

Amazing view but quite tiring to get up. If you plan to, make sure to be up to it and prepare some water. Steps to go to the top of the statue are narrow and you'll need to stay in a queue, so be mindful of that.
We get there a little late for entering and we couldn’t get up due to the time we got there. Hope that we could make it next time
Nhìn từ ngoài biển đẹp và hùng vĩ lắm ạ!

Đây là lần thứ 2 ghé Vũng Tàu, mặc dù là dân SG nhập cư hơn 10 năm nhưng rất ít đi Vũng Tàu vì Việt Nam có wá nhiều bãi biển đẹp hơn. Lựa chọn số 1 vẫn là Nha Trang/Đà Nẵng/ Phú Quốc/ Nam Du/ Hạ Long. Lần này mình lên cánh tay của bức tượng hơi chật chội phải xếp hàng nhưng cũng đáng để trải nghiệm.

After a winding uphill trail and a number of steps finally you reach a place of peace tranquility and calm. Take some water with you and google maps leads you on the wrong path. But follow your heart and reach this blissful place and marvel at this wonderful statue. It's worth it. Largest statue of Jesus Christ in Asia! Amen.

Good stuff and clean
Tượng chúa Giêsu nằm trên đỉnh núi nhỏ. Để đến đây thì bạn rẽ vào hẻm 222 đường Phan Chu Trinh rồi phi xe lên dốc. Cứ phi xe lên thẳng rồi sẽ có người chặn lại bảo vào gửi xe với giá 10.000đ. Từ đó đi lên tượng chúa còn xa, mình cũng thấy mấy bạn phi xe lên tận chỗ căng dây có anh bộ đội ngồi nhưng trên đó không có ai trông xe cả. Đi bộ một đoạn từ chỗ gửi xe lên tượng chúa sẽ đi qua đồi con heo có góc chụp rất đẹp. Con đường lên tượng chúa dốc, sỏi đá. Lên tới khu tượng chúa còn phải leo nhiều bậc dốc đá mới tới chân tượng chúa. Mình đi lúc 9h ngày 11/2 mà leo nó mệt gì đâu. Khi đi vào bên trong tượng chúa sẽ có những bậc thang rất hẹp, trong đó cũng đông người nên phải nép mình gọn lại để cho mọi người đi xuống. Khi nên đến đỉnh sẽ có lối nhìn ra 2 cánh tay, từ đây nhìn xuống dưới thấy biển và bao quát thành phố vũng tàu rất đẹp. Nhưng phải cẩn thận giữ chặt máy ảnh vì trên này gió rất to. Tượng chúa mở cửa từ 7h đến 17h hàng ngày nên mọi người có thể chọn thời gian đến phù hợp để tránh ánh nắng chói chang. Tượng Chúa Kito có chiều cao 32m, sải tay dài 18,3m đứng trên độ cao 170m, với hướng nhìn ra biển tuyệt đẹp, bên trong là 133 bậc thang lên tận 2 tay của tượng. Tượng Chúa Kitô có thể được coi như phiên bản, có nét tương đồng với Tượng Chúa Kitô cao hơn 2m tại thành phố Rio de Janeiro của Brasil – một trong những bức tượng lớn nhất Châu Á.
