  • Unfortunately, during the visit, I did not know to whom it is dedicated. Located at the end of the Wallking Street by the waterfront. Statue of Chiang Hung Tao is dedicated to v'etskomu, the Commander-in-Chief who successfully defend the country during the third Mongol invasion of Dajv'et in 1287-1288.

  • This area of Saigon is very lively 24/7. The statue of Tran Hung Dao Is very prominently displayed in Vietnam many places for good reason.I photograph this one in Vun Tau.I hope no one takes offence to my copy and placing it here.With his hand out stretched and his finger pointing as a warning to all invaders,beware.I call it the Vietnam, finger. The location here has a lot of nice shops to see,walk around here is fun.These ships caught me eye and I had to have a pic as back home I have a soft spot to looking at ships of any kind.
  • nhiều pkm :D
