The Huong Pagoda Festival is one of the biggest spring festivals in Vietnam. It lasts for nearly three months from the 6th of the first lunar month.

The peak of the festival is from the full moon in January to the 18th of the second lunar month. Tens of thousands of people come every day, causing huge crowds and pushing the cost of services up.

Along with Huong and Yen Tu pagodas, Bai Dinh Pagoda in Ninh Binh Province is one of the three most famous spiritual places in the country.

The Bai Dinh Pagoda Complex has an area of 1,700ha including the old and new pagoda areas and others such as a cultural park and Buddhist academy.

It has Asia's largest gold-plated bronze Buddha statue and the longest Arhat corridor.

The pagoda has been renovated and upgraded on the foundation of an ancient pagoda.
