I have heard many things about Vietnam, the food the beautiful rice fields but no one mentioned how hot and humid is.
Such a vibrant and busy city, motorcycles everywhere at all hours, hundred.. thousands, no stopping for red light or pedestrian signs.
The lotus flower and the portrait of the ex-president Ho Chi Minh are everywhere.
The building to the right is a museum dedicated to “Uncle Ho”. The space is full memorabilia of his life and the steps he took to be who he is.
Below is the image of Uncle Ho with the People’s Committee Building behind.
The neighborhood around the People’s Committee building is one of the best or the most expensive area in all the city, luxury stores are everywhere.
I have to say that the best steak that I ever had, has been in Vietnam, in a Argentinian restaurant and the steak was from Australia.
Vinh Trang Pagoda
Buddhist temple near Mỹ Tho in the Mekong Delta region of southern Vietnam.
The Pagoda’s style is an elegant blend of East and West; Renaissance-style patterns and Romanesque arches blend seamlessly with Japanese tile and traditional Vietnamese architectural styles.
he religious site was seriously damaged by French colonists in 1861 and a severe storm in 1904. On both occasions, practitioners restored the pagoda to its original splendor.
The Mekong Delta in southern Vietnam is a vast maze of rivers, swamps and islands, home to floating markets, Khmer pagodas and villages surrounded by rice paddies.
During the tour we visit a coconut and bee farm.
The building was constructed when Vietnam was part of French Indochina in the late 19th century. It counts with Gothic, Renaissance and French influences.
