The boats to the Perfume pagoda on the Yen river arrive at a temple called Den Trinh (Shrine for First Presenting), where Vietnamese worshippers usually will burn the first joysticks, to inform the local deities about their arrival and to pray for good luck for the coming year. The temple is nice and worthwile spending some time. From the Den Trinh temple you either continue by foot along a path or take the cable car to the Perfume pagoda.
