  • As far as statues go, this is a case of same same.But l saw it as a photo opportunity . It is situated near the river and is but a short walk from the centre of town. 
  • This image is a heroic statue of was built towards the Saigon River. He was in General, I think that I'm sure was the hero of the fatherland. Even during the invasion of the Mongols, Okoshi army led the Mongolian army defeated much, it was up to pursue the army to reverse. If you showed the images reside in Ho Chi Minh City, but with the tourists don't know this episode happens to be sitting next to the plane, knew firmly. Vehicles speeding around the statue are Rotary, the traffic is much too often. Please don't neglect to note. It is dangerous.

  • 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.
