  • 這座孤獨的雕像,靠近我住的酒店。它是在西貢河邊,是為了紀念13世紀,越南人打敗蒙古人。雕像是當時最高指揮官,是一位聰明和勇敢的將軍。令我印象深刻的是,蒙古人能打敗中國,一直衝到越南這裡。當然,蒙古人失敗的真正原因,是因為供應線的過度膨脹。你在這拍攝一些照片,就可以趕緊離開,因為周邊沒什麼可看的。公園是相當大,但沒有維護得很好。 
  • The statue of Heroes long ago, Chinese troops to repel. Speaking of Viet Nam's Ho Chi Minh City's respect I had this. However, crossing heavy traffic road and just just a statue, keep with no signal it is a must. I think a good way as.

  • 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
