  • Statue of Tran Hung Dao by Ton Duc Thang road. A prominent Vietnam warrior of the past. Nearby are modern highrise. Saigon River is just right in front. There is a few kilometres of esplanade along Saigon River. There is a small garden around it with fountains. The water is smelly. Walking distance to Lucky Plaza.
  • I am not a big fan of statues. I suppose i could tell you that it remains undamaged, and the locals love to hang-out here, but nothing special.
  • 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.
  • Ok
