  • The statue is located on the riverfront, just beyond the Majestic hotel. Is dedicated to Tran Hung Dao, Vietnamese General who defeated the Mongols in an epic battle.

  • Standing in the middle of the roundabout traffic is not overwhelming. It was hard to pass. Mongols Japan around the same time, in the 13th century, Cantonese people of the occupied territories to guard Viet Nam by sea sallied out against will, but this person is away in guerrilla tactics, the end giving it a devastating blow in Halong Bay. This is the same end as the former. People who grew up in the grass again, impossible battle. Statue located in Viet Nam all over a statue of Tran Hung DAO, but feel the leadership is quite good.

  • This statue is near majestic hotel starburst Harbor Park. Seems that Tran Hung DAO defended the Viet Nam from a former 13th-century hero. Is a small artificial pond in the middle of the Park, there are benches. Overlooking the Saigon River and traffic vehicle as a resting spot for exploring the Ho Chi Minh City suggested it is. So many cars and motorbikes around the Park is, at the roundabout, but please note section.

  • A historical statue of a hero. Unfortinately it was not well maintained.
  • 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.
  • This is a good place to get some views of the river, boat restaurants, barges, bridges, and more. The park has benches and shade during the heat. It is more popular at night.
  • Interesting figure, but nothing to explain about him and in order to reach the statue you have to suffer crossing!
  • 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.
