VIETNAM ATTRACTIONS - HUONG PAGODA

The Huong Pagoda  - Hanoi
It is the most famous pagoda in the area of Hanoi and is a complex of pagodas set amidst mountains, forests, lakes and caves, surrounded by vast green rice-growing plains, about 75 km from Southwest of Hanoi.

A boat ride on the Yen Vi Stream through the green paddies to the mountain where the pagodas is located is interesting. The main pagoda is situated on the top of a mountain.
Many people believe that this is a place where the deities purify souls, cure sufferings, and grant offspring to childless families.
Going to the Perfume Pagoda must be a good chance of boating, hiking and relaxation. Especially, every year the Huong Pagoda Festival taking place in spring attracts tens of thousands of tourists and pilgrims coming to implore the spirits for good luck, wealth, and happiness, and also to admire the beaMia Pagoda - www.luxuryprivatetravel.comutiful landscapes of the area. The festival takes place for two months from 15th of the first lunar month to the 15th of the 3rd lunar month. Visitors will also find the remains of the citadel and many vestiges here.

Mia Pagoda - Duong lam Village - Hanoi
Mía Pagoda, originally called Sùng Nghiêm T
Pagoda, is said to have been built in 1632 by the Lady Nguyn Th Rong, wife of Lord Trnh Tráng (1623-1657), although an earlier pagoda is believed to have existed at the site. The bell tower and its great red bell of 1743 are of particular interest, while the main temple itself houses 287 statues of all sizes, a bronze gong cast in 1846 and the Lady Mía stele, dHo Chi Minh Trail Museum - www.luxuryprivatetravel.comating from 1632.

Ho Chi Minh Trail Museum
Hours
: Daily 8-11:30am and 1:30-4pm
Location: 14km (8 3/4 miles) southwest of Hanoi along Rte. 6 (heading toward Hoa Binh)

Ho Chi Minh Trail Museum was established on 13th of July 1995.  A museum dedicated to the war of inches and supplies along the borders of Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia.


The objects on display convey the process of building, fighting and growing of the army and people along Ho Chi Minh Trail as well as stories of the heroic Truong Son soldiers in the war of resistance and during the national renovation, the solidarity of three Indochinese countries on the legendary: “Ho Chi Minh Trail”.

The museum is far out of town but worth the trip for war buffs. Three floors are crowded with exhibits of photography as well as lots of war machinery. The trucks, complete with leafy camouflage, that traveled parts of the Ho Chi Minh Trail are parked in a shaded area in the courtyard out front. The revolutionary rhetoric is heavy at this museum, and the focus is on the sacrifice of the many who shoveled, dug, fought, and scraped by to get supplies of rice and ammunition to North Vietnam's frontline forces. There is an important stress on the efforts of women to keep the supply lines open. The collection of weaponry and heavy machinery used throughout the war is enough to make it worth the visit, but again it's just for war buffs, as it is a long drive along traffic-choked roads south of town to get here.

General contents of exhibition:

-          Ho Chi Minh Trail (also called Truong Son Trail, after the range of mountain that ran down the western spine of North Vietnam into Laos and South) in early days.
