Tran Hung Dao Statue, Ho Chi Minh City

Admire a military genius who repelled Mongol forces amidst heavy traffic at Tran Hung Dao Statue, a stern looking bronze elevated on tall red marble pedestal overlooking Saigon River. 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.

  • Tran Hong Viet Nam Tran dynasty days of the General DAO is the famous generals. The hotel of Transportation District 1 is located on the Riverside Rotary Center. Take a stroll down the River to commemorate a time photo would be great.

  • The city erected a high in the abdomen. It's like the gate of the King Sejong award. If there is a difference it is difficult to go near. Right away, I'm just looking for figures of Valor.

  • Nothing too much to get excited about with this large statue located near the Renaissance Hotel and the river amongst a sea of traffic. A quick visit will be sufficient for most people.  more »

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Interesting figure, but nothing to explain about him and in order to reach the statue you have to suffer crossing!
  • 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.
