Day3, Vietnam

Off to Vietnam for a quick these awesome UNESCO sites

Wow, Marc showed me the inside of the Bridge Pagoda in Hoi An.

Hoi An Ancient Town is an exceptionally well-preserved example of a South-East Asian trading port dating from the 15th to the 19th century. Its buildings and its street plan reflect the influences, both indigenous and foreign, that have combined to produce this unique heritage site.

Between the 4th and 13th centuries a unique culture which owed its spiritual origins to Indian Hinduism developed on the coast of contemporary Viet Nam. This is graphically illustrated by the remains of a series of impressive tower-temples located in a dramatic site, My Son Sanctuary, that was the religious and political capital of the Champa Kingdom for most of its existence.
