During the Nui Ba annual celebration, thousands of Buddhists and tourists flock to the Ba Mountain to worship and sightsee. The festival is celebrated during spring till the 30th day of the 1st lunar month and reaches its peak on the day of the full moon of the first month. People from the Ho Chi Minh City and the provinces of the south gather in crowds at the mountain to celebrate on the day of the peak. Pilgrims start at the bottom of the mountain and climb one half of the mountain to Saint Linh Son's communal house, then; they follow a path that leads to a pagoda where they feast on the vegetarian meals offered at the pagoda. Tourists can enjoy the meal for free and donations to the pagoda can be made depending on budget and ability.
