Surrounded by modern skyscrapers, the monument is set in a well-maintained garden. The statue’s finger points downward at spectators as a sign of warning, representing Vietnam’s historic defiance and a firm vision of the future. Surrounded by a pool, the monument to the 13th century Supreme Commander of Vietnam also features a bronze urn dedicated to him.

  • 因為此雕像剛好是在大路的圓環中央,所以如果要安全拍照可以待在旁邊的人行道上即可。不要冒險穿過馬路,很危險。雕像對面是河岸步道,晚上可以沿著河岸散步,雖然旁邊大馬路的車流喇叭很吵,但河景還可以的。  more »

  • 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
