Vietnamese Myths

The vietnamese dragon: legend, history & geography.

Children of the Dragon and the Fairy

Dragon has long been the legendary animal of oriented countries. Since the end of the Second World War, with the emergence of the international scene of East Asia, the media have made more and more frequent use of the dragon image in reference to China and countries under the past influence of Chinese culture. But while all those countries have in common the immemorial myth of the dragon, none of them have gone so far as to claim, as the Vietnamese do, the Vietnamese dragon as their ancestor and to give its capital the name of this mythical animal.

The Vietnamese Dragon in Legend & Culture

The perennial character of the Vietnamese dragon is a fit illustration of the ideas put forward by the American mythologist Joseph Campbell in “The Power of Myth”. He argues that “the myth is not dead in modern life” and that “myths are clues to our deepest spiritual potential”. Several Vietnamese myths , born as early as the Bronze Age (1st millennium B.C.) in the Red River basin, marked the formation of the Viet cultural and national identity before the impact of Chinese culture: the ancestral Dragon, the demigod of Giong, victor over northern invaders, the Mountain God defending the people against the floods of the Red River. Over the last three millennia, those persisting myths have constantly inspired history.

Vietnamese dragon in culture and history

Vietnamese Dragon Legend: Con Rong Chau Tien

Why the Viet have always called themselves “con Rong chau Tien” (children of the Dragon and the Fairy). This legend will be the answer. Long, long ago there lived in Linh Nam (Country south of the Mountain Range on the Border – ancient Vietnam) a magician king called Kinh Duong Vuong, who could walk on water as well as on terra firma. One day in the course of a pleasure trip on a lake, he met Long Nu (the Dragon maiden), the daughter of the Long Vuong (the Dragon King of the sea), and married her. From their union was born a Herculean son who later mounted the throne with the name Lac Long Quan later becoming the Dragon King of Lac Viet – an ancient name of Vietnam)

The Victories of Lac Long Quan

With the power of Dragon from his mother and magic from his father, Lac Long Quan traveled all over Linh Nam to restore peace and order troubled by evil monsters. In the South Sea, he killed the gigantic Fish Demon, and then cut it into three parts. One of them, the tail, became the present-day island of Bach Long Vi (Tail of the White Dragon) in the southern part of Ha Long Bay. After that, Lac Long Quan killed the Nine-tailed demon which often appeared in human form and seized young women and carried them to its caves to rape and murder. The destruction of the demon and its cave was turned into the present-day West Lake in Hanoi. Another exploit of the Dragon King was the overpowering of the demoniac Evil Tree, which later had to fly to the southwest.

The Legend of a Sack of a Hundred Eggs

At the time a northern chieftain invaded the country. With him was his daughter named Au Co. Lac Long Quan drove him and his troops away and took her as his queen. Later his queen bore a sack containing a hundred eggs. These, after seven days, hatched a hundred babies. That is the reason why Vietnamese people often call each other ‘’dong bao” (born from the same sack). They eventually grew up into strong and handsome youngsters. At that moment, Lac Long Quan told his wife: “I am of the race of Dragons living in the sea. You are of the race of fairies living in the mountains. We have no choice but to separate. You bring fifty of our son to the mountain. I will rejoin the sea with the fifty others”.

The divine spouses thus went their separate ways and created two domains: one with a population living on the coast and the lowlands, the others with a population living in the highlands. The later learned from their mother the art of clearing the slopes to grow rice and to raise mulberry and silkworms. The eldest son, who was among those accompanying the father to the lowlands, eventually ascended the throne with the regal name of Hung Vuong who inaugurated a line of 18 sovereigns called the Hong Bang Dynasty beginning the period of the 4000-year history of Vietnam. Since then, Vietnamese people have always proudly called themselves “con Rong chau Tien”.A temple was built to their memory in the province of Phu Tho on the left bank of the Red River.

Legend of con Rong chau Tien and its effects

The myth of the Dragon and the Fairy was an effective reference in the struggle against foreign aggressors Chinese and French. Many Confucian scholars and modern militants used that reference to mobilize the masses. Thus, in the 6th century, under Chinese rule, the resistance hero Trieu Quang Phuc established a guerrilla base in the swampy area of the Lake that came-into-being-overnight (Dam Da Trach). This is the place where the demigod Chu Dong Tu took his flight to heaven. A Hung King was believed to come down from heaven, riding a dragon, and to present the national hero with a claw of the fabulous animal, a symbol of his invincibility and legitimacy.

demigod chu dong tu dragons in vietnamese culture

In the late 1920s, Viet Nam Quoc Dan Dang (the Vietnamese nationalist party) evoked the Dragon-Fairy stock in its appeal to the people: “We are children of the Southern Country of the Lac Viet race, of the Hong Bang Dynasty. How could we resign ourselves to being oppressed?”

In 1954, following the victory over French colonial troops, President Ho Chi Minh, before the temple dedicated to the Hung kings, addressed the troops about to liberate Hanoi in these terms: “The Hung kings had the merit of creating our country. We, their descendants, must defend it”. At the time, it was a myth he cited because the archaeological excavations identifying the Bronze Age (Dong Son culture) with the epoch of the Hung kings were to be conducted only starting from 1959.

ho chi minh at hung temple vietnamese dragon

The myth of the Dragon and the Fairy – with an ornithological tinge and a totemic connotation would find a scientific justification. It reflected the process of formation of the Vietnamese people, whose conquest of the Song Hong (the Red River) Delta was relatively slow to come: it was only possible when the population, who had first settled in the foothills, had grown numerous enough to launch into the building of river and coastal dikes. The myth also hints at the complementary character of the populations of the lowlands and highlands. The dragon is thus part of the cult of fertility for it brings the rains that produce bumper harvests.

The Vietnamese Dragon in History

The vietnam dragon in ly dynasty (1009-1226).

In 1010, King Ly Thai To left Hoa Lu (Ninh Binh province) and chose Thang Long (the rising dragon) as the capital of Dai Viet (Vietnam’s old name). Then the dragon became the noble symbol, the power of the royal family, and the religious (Buddhism). It is embodied in a sleek, sophisticated, artistic complex with a complete layout and unique style which can be seen in the décor of architecture.

The Vietnam Dragon in Tran Dynasty (1226-1400)

The Vietnamese dragon in this period had many differences from the previous one. The body of the dragon was bigger, stronger. Horns appeared on the dragon’s head and ears. The majestic shape of the Vietnam dragon brings new meaning to the dynasty encouraging the spirit of all the people to fight against 3 invasions of Mongolia.

The Vietnam Dragon in Nguyen Dynasty (1802-1945)

In the Nguyen Dynasty, the Vietnamese dragon still kept the beauty of tradition combining with modern art from Western countries. It was removed the verbose details of its head and body; replaced by the simple ones which make the dragon delicate and more luxurious. The dragon of the Nguyen dynasty remains relatively in temples, pagodas from Hue to the Red River Delta.

Customer

Lena, our guide in Moscow was excellent. She was very knowledgable and could answer any question we had for her. We liked that she could pick up on our interests and take us places we might not have thought of to go. When we realized that one of the places we had chosen to see would probably not be that interesting to us, she was able to arrange entry to the Diamond Fund and the Armoury for us. Riding the Metro with Lena was a real adventure and a lot of fun. In Saint Petersburg we found Anna well versed in the history of the Tsars and in the Hermitage collection. Arkady in Veliky Novgorod was a very good guide and answered all of our questions with ease. Novgorod was perhaps a long way to go for a day trip, but we did enjoy it. Vasily was a great driver to have and kept us safe with good humour and skill. We enjoyed ourselves so much, my daughter says she is already planning to return. We would both have no hesistation to recommend ExpresstoRussia to anyone we know.

Just wanted to let you know that My grandson Bruno and I couldn´t have been more pleased with our week in Moscow (6/15 - 6/21). We were absolutely enchanted with the whole experience, including getting lost a couple of times in the Metro during our free time. Although both our guides (both Eleanas) were excellent, I would particularly commend the first one (she took us to the Tatiakov, the KGB tour, and to that beautiful cemetery where so many great Russian artists, authors, composers, musicians, militarists, and politicians are buried). Her knowledge is encyclopedic; and her understanding of today´s Russia as a product of its past was, for us, truly enlightening. I will be taking another tour in Russia, with my wife, within the next two or three years. I will be in touch with you when the time comes. Meanwhile, I will refer you to other potential visitors to Russia as I meet them.

Moscow, a City Like No Other

Moscow is Russia’s largest city with a population of between 12 and 13 million. It is also Europe’s largest city and when you visit Moscow, you can feel it. The layout and architecture of the city is eclectic, ranging from crooked, ancient streets and alleyways to wide, bustling boulevards, from medieval churches to Stalin skyscrapers and to modern, glass buildings towering over everything and of course in the center of it all is the Kremlin and the magnificent Red Square. Moscow is also home to a fantastic, efficient and very beautiful metro system – each station having its own special design. In fact, Express to Russia’s Moscow metro tours and excursions are some of our most popular attractions that we offer. On our Moscow tours, you will see this and more.

Moscow Tours centering on Russian History

Moscow has a long and interesting history and has been the capital of Russia in many of its different iterations – capital of the Grand Duchy of Moscow , the Russian Empire and of course the Soviet Union (who could ever forget the Soviet Union?). Moscow, was founded in the 12th century by Prince Yuri Dolgaruki (Yuri of the long arms – he really did have long arms!). From that time on, it was home to the Russian Tsars until Peter the Great moved the capital to St. Petersburg in 1703. The city has survived invasions and sieges from the Mongols, the Tartars, the Poles, Lithuanians and Napoleon but has always persevered. Our Moscow tours will enlighten you on this great history and give you insights into Muscovites and their unique culture. Our Moscow tours show you what the city is like today but also brings to life the past. Moscow never seems to sleep and is bursting with energy. A Moscow tour with Express to Russia is truly the best way of getting to know Russia’s largest and most vibrant city.

Frequently Asked Questions From Our Travelers

What is the best time to visit moscow.

Any time of year is fine depending on what you plan to do. Summertime is pleasantly warm, ideal for exploring the city and its vibrant atmosphere, but Moscow will be much busier and accommodation is more expensive. Winter can be quite cold but beautiful nonetheless, and this is unproblematic if you intend to spend most of your trip in museums and galleries. There are also various festivals and events organised throughout the year. For more information about the best time to visit, read our guide

How many days are enough in Moscow?

If you plan your itinerary strategically and aren’t averse to a packed schedule, you can cover Moscow’s main sights over a long weekend. Most popular attractions are in the city centre, and the Moscow Metro allows you to cover much ground in a small amount of time. Ensure that your accommodation is fairly central and book tickets in advance, so that you can make the most of your days. For an informative and well-organised day out, check out our Moscow day tours with options to suit all interests.

Do they speak English in Moscow?

As Russia’s capital city, tourists are well accommodated in Moscow. There should be English-speaking staff in restaurants, bars, hotels, shops and attractions in tourist hotspots, and there are also English-speaking tourist police. Transport services have English translations on their maps and English announcements via intercom; alternatively, order taxis from the Yandex Taxi app (Russian Uber), though it’s unlikely that your taxi driver will speak English. If you get stuck and cannot communicate, it’s fine to use Google Translate.

Is it safe to travel to Moscow?

It is no less safe to travel to Moscow than to any European city if you exercise common sense and look after your belongings. As with every city some regions can be more unsavoury than others, but no tourist attractions are located there. The traffic in Moscow is notorious, so exercise caution when crossing roads. Do not take unlicensed taxis; book in advance or take public transport, which is widespread and perfectly safe. If you encounter any problems, look for the special tourist police who can help you.

Travel Itinerary For One Week in Moscow: The Best of Moscow!

I just got back from one week in Moscow. And, as you might have already guessed, it was a mind-boggling experience. It was not my first trip to the Russian capital. But I hardly ever got enough time to explore this sprawling city. Visiting places for business rarely leaves enough time for sightseeing. I think that if you’ve got one week in Russia, you can also consider splitting your time between its largest cities (i.e. Saint Petersburg ) to get the most out of your trip. Seven days will let you see the majority of the main sights and go beyond just scratching the surface. In this post, I’m going to share with you my idea of the perfect travel itinerary for one week in Moscow.

Moscow is perhaps both the business and cultural hub of Russia. There is a lot more to see here than just the Kremlin and Saint Basil’s Cathedral. Centuries-old churches with onion-shaped domes dotted around the city are in stark contrast with newly completed impressive skyscrapers of Moscow City dominating the skyline. I spent a lot of time thinking about my Moscow itinerary before I left. And this city lived up to all of my expectations.

7-day Moscow itinerary

Travel Itinerary For One Week in Moscow

Day 1 – red square and the kremlin.

Metro Station: Okhotny Ryad on Red Line.

No trip to Moscow would be complete without seeing its main attraction. The Red Square is just a stone’s throw away from several metro stations. It is home to some of the most impressive architectural masterpieces in the city. The first thing you’ll probably notice after entering it and passing vendors selling weird fur hats is the fairytale-like looking Saint Basil’s Cathedral. It was built to commemorate one of the major victories of Ivan the Terrible. I once spent 20 minutes gazing at it, trying to find the perfect angle to snap it. It was easier said than done because of the hordes of locals and tourists.

As you continue strolling around Red Square, there’s no way you can miss Gum. It was widely known as the main department store during the Soviet Era. Now this large (yet historic) shopping mall is filled with expensive boutiques, pricey eateries, etc. During my trip to Moscow, I was on a tight budget. So I only took a retro-style stroll in Gum to get a rare glimpse of a place where Soviet leaders used to grocery shop and buy their stuff. In case you want some modern shopping experience, head to the Okhotny Ryad Shopping Center with stores like New Yorker, Zara, and Adidas.

To continue this Moscow itinerary, next you may want to go inside the Kremlin walls. This is the center of Russian political power and the president’s official residence. If you’re planning to pay Kremlin a visit do your best to visit Ivan the Great Bell Tower as well. Go there as early as possible to avoid crowds and get an incredible bird’s-eye view. There are a couple of museums that are available during designated visiting hours. Make sure to book your ticket online and avoid lines.

Day 2 – Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, the Tretyakov Gallery, and the Arbat Street

Metro Station: Kropotkinskaya on Red Line

As soon as you start creating a Moscow itinerary for your second day, you’ll discover that there are plenty of metro stations that are much closer to certain sites. Depending on your route, take a closer look at the metro map to pick the closest.

The white marble walls of Christ the Saviour Cathedral are awe-inspiring. As you approach this tallest Orthodox Christian church, you may notice the bronze sculptures, magnificent arches, and cupolas that were created to commemorate Russia’s victory against Napoleon.

Unfortunately, the current Cathedral is a replica, since original was blown to bits in 1931 by the Soviet government. The new cathedral basically follows the original design, but they have added some new elements such as marble high reliefs.

Home to some precious collection of artworks, in Tretyakov Gallery you can find more than 150,000 of works spanning centuries of artistic endeavor. Originally a privately owned gallery, it now has become one of the largest museums in Russia. The Gallery is often considered essential to visit. But I have encountered a lot of locals who have never been there.

Famous for its souvenirs, musicians, and theaters, Arbat street is among the few in Moscow that were turned into pedestrian zones. Arbat street is usually very busy with tourists and locals alike. My local friend once called it the oldest street in Moscow dating back to 1493. It is a kilometer long walking street filled with fancy gift shops, small cozy restaurants, lots of cute cafes, and street artists. It is closed to any vehicular traffic, so you can easily stroll it with kids.

Day 3 – Moscow River Boat Ride, Poklonnaya Hill Victory Park, the Moscow City

Metro Station: Kievskaya and Park Pobedy on Dark Blue Line / Vystavochnaya on Light Blue Line

Voyaging along the Moscow River is definitely one of the best ways to catch a glimpse of the city and see the attractions from a bit different perspective. Depending on your Moscow itinerary, travel budget and the time of the year, there are various types of boats available. In the summer there is no shortage of boats, and you’ll be spoiled for choice.

exploring Moscow

Travel Itinerary for One Week in Beijing

If you find yourself in Moscow during the winter months, I’d recommend going with Radisson boat cruise. These are often more expensive (yet comfy). They offer refreshments like tea, coffee, hot chocolate, and, of course, alcoholic drinks. Prices may vary but mostly depend on your food and drink selection. Find their main pier near the opulent Ukraine hotel . The hotel is one of the “Seven Sisters”, so if you’re into the charm of Stalinist architecture don’t miss a chance to stay there.

The area near Poklonnaya Hill has the closest relation to the country’s recent past. The memorial complex was completed in the mid-1990s to commemorate the Victory and WW2 casualties. Also known as the Great Patriotic War Museum, activities here include indoor attractions while the grounds around host an open-air museum with old tanks and other vehicles used on the battlefield.

How I Planned My Trip to Vietnam

The hallmark of the memorial complex and the first thing you see as you exit metro is the statue of Nike mounted to its column. This is a very impressive Obelisk with a statue of Saint George slaying the dragon at its base.

Maybe not as impressive as Shanghai’s Oriental Pearl Tower , the skyscrapers of the Moscow City (otherwise known as Moscow International Business Center) are so drastically different from dull Soviet architecture. With 239 meters and 60 floors, the Empire Tower is the seventh highest building in the business district.

The observation deck occupies 56 floor from where you have some panoramic views of the city. I loved the view in the direction of Moscow State University and Luzhniki stadium as well to the other side with residential quarters. The entrance fee is pricey, but if you’re want to get a bird’s eye view, the skyscraper is one of the best places for doing just that.

Day 4 – VDNKh, Worker and Collective Farm Woman Monument, The Ostankino TV Tower

Metro Station: VDNKh on Orange Line

VDNKh is one of my favorite attractions in Moscow. The weird abbreviation actually stands for Russian vystavka dostizheniy narodnogo khozyaystva (Exhibition of Achievements of the National Economy). With more than 200 buildings and 30 pavilions on the grounds, VDNKh serves as an open-air museum. You can easily spend a full day here since the park occupies a very large area.

Moscow sights

Places to Visit in Barcelona That Aren’t Beaches

First, there are pavilions that used to showcase different cultures the USSR was made of. Additionally, there is a number of shopping pavilions, as well as Moskvarium (an Oceanarium) that features a variety of marine species. VDNKh is a popular venue for events and fairs. There is always something going on, so I’d recommend checking their website if you want to see some particular exhibition.

A stone’s throw away from VDNKh there is a very distinctive 25-meters high monument. Originally built in 1937 for the world fair in Paris, the hulking figures of men and women holding a hammer and a sickle represent the Soviet idea of united workers and farmers. It doesn’t take much time to see the monument, but visiting it gives some idea of the Soviet Union’s grandiose aspirations.

I have a thing for tall buildings. So to continue my travel itinerary for one week in Moscow I decided to climb the fourth highest TV tower in the world. This iconic 540m tower is a fixture of the skyline. You can see it virtually from everywhere in Moscow, and this is where you can get the best panoramic views (yep, even better than Empire skyscraper).

top things to do in Moscow

Parts of the floor are made of tempered glass, so it can be quite scary to exit the elevator. But trust me, as you start observing buildings and cars below, you won’t want to leave. There is only a limited number of tickets per day, so you may want to book online. Insider tip: the first tour is cheaper, you can save up to $10 if go there early.

Day 5 – A Tour To Moscow Manor Houses

Metro Station: Kolomenskoye, Tsaritsyno on Dark Green Line / Kuskovo on Purple Line

I love visiting the manor houses and palaces in Moscow. These opulent buildings were generally built to house Russian aristocratic families and monarchs. Houses tend to be rather grand affairs with impressive architecture. And, depending on the whims of the owners, some form of a landscaped garden.

During the early part of the 20th century though, many of Russia’s aristocratic families (including the family of the last emperor) ended up being killed or moving abroad . Their manor houses were nationalized. Some time later (after the fall of the USSR) these were open to the public. It means that today a great many of Moscow’s finest manor houses and palaces are open for touring.

20 Travel Tips I’ve Learned From Travelling The World

There are 20 manor houses scattered throughout the city and more than 25 in the area around. But not all of them easily accessible and exploring them often takes a lot of time. I’d recommend focusing on three most popular estates in Moscow that are some 30-minute metro ride away from Kremlin.

Sandwiched between the Moscow River and the Andropov Avenue, Kolomenskoye is a UNESCO site that became a public park in the 1920’s. Once a former royal estate, now it is one of the most tranquil parks in the city with gorgeous views. The Ascension Church, The White Column, and the grounds are a truly grand place to visit.

You could easily spend a full day here, exploring a traditional Russian village (that is, in fact, a market), picnicking by the river, enjoying the Eastern Orthodox church architecture, hiking the grounds as well as and wandering the park and gardens with wildflower meadows, apple orchards, and birch and maple groves. The estate museum showcases Russian nature at its finest year-round.

If my travel itinerary for one week in Moscow was a family tree, Tsaritsyno Park would probably be the crazy uncle that no-one talks about. It’s a large park in the south of the city of mind-boggling proportions, unbelievable in so many ways, and yet most travelers have never heard of it.

The palace was supposed to be a summer home for Empress Catherine the Great. But since the construction didn’t meet with her approval the palace was abandoned. Since the early 1990’s the palace, the pond, and the grounds have been undergoing renovations. The entire complex is now looking brighter and more elaborately decorated than at possibly any other time during its history. Like most parks in Moscow, you can visit Tsaritsyno free of charge, but there is a small fee if you want to visit the palace.

Moscow itinerary

How To Stop Procrastinating When Trip Planning

Last, but by no means least on my Moscow itinerary is Kuskovo Park . This is definitely an off-the-beaten-path place. While it is not easily accessible, you will be rewarded with a lack of crowds. This 18th-century summer country house of the Sheremetev family was one of the first summer country estates of the Russian nobility. And when you visit you’ll quickly realize why locals love this park.

Like many other estates, Kuskovo has just been renovated. So there are lovely French formal garden, a grotto, and the Dutch house to explore. Make sure to plan your itinerary well because the estate is some way from a metro station.

Day 6 – Explore the Golden Ring

Creating the Moscow itinerary may keep you busy for days with the seemingly endless amount of things to do. Visiting the so-called Golden Ring is like stepping back in time. Golden Ring is a “theme route” devised by promotion-minded journalist and writer Yuri Bychkov.

Having started in Moscow the route will take you through a number of historical cities. It now includes Suzdal, Vladimir, Kostroma, Yaroslavl and Sergiev Posad. All these awe-inspiring towns have their own smaller kremlins and feature dramatic churches with onion-shaped domes, tranquil residential areas, and other architectural landmarks.

Two Weeks In Thailand: The Perfect 14-Day Itinerary

I only visited two out of eight cities included on the route. It is a no-brainer that Sergiev Posad is the nearest and the easiest city to see on a day trip from Moscow. That being said, you can explore its main attractions in just one day. Located some 70 km north-east of the Russian capital, this tiny and overlooked town is home to Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius, UNESCO Site.

Sergiev Posad is often described as being at the heart of Russian spiritual life. So it is uncommon to see the crowds of Russian pilgrims showing a deep reverence for their religion. If you’re traveling independently and using public transport, you can reach Sergiev Posad by bus (departs from VDNKh) or by suburban commuter train from Yaroslavskaya Railway Station (Bahnhof). It takes about one and a half hours to reach the town.

Trinity Lavra of St. Sergius is a great place to get a glimpse of filling and warming Russian lunch, specifically at the “ Gostevaya Izba ” restaurant. Try the duck breast, hearty potato and vegetables, and the awesome Napoleon cake.

Day 7 – Gorky Park, Izmailovo Kremlin, Patriarch’s Ponds

Metro Station: Park Kultury or Oktyabrskaya on Circle Line / Partizanskaya on Dark Blue Line / Pushkinskaya on Dark Green Line

Gorky Park is in the heart of Moscow. It offers many different types of outdoor activities, such as dancing, cycling, skateboarding, walking, jogging, and anything else you can do in a park. Named after Maxim Gorky, this sprawling and lovely park is where locals go on a picnic, relax and enjoy free yoga classes. It’s a popular place to bike around, and there is a Muzeon Art Park not far from here. A dynamic location with a younger vibe. There is also a pier, so you can take a cruise along the river too.

How to Save Money While Traveling in Europe

The Kremlin in Izmailovo is by no means like the one you can find near the Red Square. Originally built for decorative purposes, it now features the Vernissage flea market and a number of frequent fairs, exhibitions, and conferences. Every weekend, there’s a giant flea market in Izmailovo, where dozens of stalls sell Soviet propaganda crap, Russian nesting dolls, vinyl records, jewelry and just about any object you can imagine. Go early in the morning if you want to beat the crowds.

All the Bulgakov’s fans should pay a visit to Patriarch’s Ponds (yup, that is plural). With a lovely small city park and the only one (!) pond in the middle, the location is where the opening scene of Bulgakov’s novel Master and Margarita was set. The novel is centered around a visit by Devil to the atheistic Soviet Union is considered by many critics to be one of the best novels of the 20th century. I spent great two hours strolling the nearby streets and having lunch in the hipster cafe.

Conclusion and Recommendations

To conclude, Moscow is a safe city to visit. I have never had a problem with getting around and most locals are really friendly once they know you’re a foreigner. Moscow has undergone some serious reconstruction over the last few years. So you can expect some places to be completely different. I hope my one week Moscow itinerary was helpful! If you have less time, say 4 days or 5 days, I would cut out day 6 and day 7. You could save the Golden Ring for a separate trip entirely as there’s lots to see!

Welcome to Chau Doc, Vietnam

rong a chau travel

Chau Doc, a transit point to Cambodia, is located in the northwest part of the Mekong Delta, about 250 km west of Ho Chi Minh City and about 120 km from Can Tho City. All tourists who want to visit Vietnam’s Mekong Delta and continue the trip to Phnom Penh without coming back to Saigon are highly recommended to stay at least one night in Chau Doc. Since the opening of the borders in 2000 there has been a real boom. Many visitors who travel from Vietnam to Cambodia pass through the nice city.  From here, there are daily speedboats from/to Chau Doc to/from Phnompenh Cambodia (approx. 5h). Chau Doc also has Tinh Bien international border (on the mainland, easy for intl tourists to cross) gate to Cambodia as well. Such proximity to Cambodia has nurtured an eclectic mix of Cham, Khmer, Chinese and Vietnamese cultures and historical richness. The local minority groups add colour and variety to the area, this is most apparent in the traditional fabrics and clothes being worn as well as the local architecture. For traveling to Chau Doc, consider the highlights of the National Cultural Relic of The Lady Temple, Vinh Te Canal, Tay An Pagoda, Sam Mountain, Tra Su forest and the floating villages.

Vinh Xuong border crossing (Tan Chau District); Tinh Bien border crossing (Tinh Bien district); Khanh Binh border crossing (An Phu district); Vinh Hoi Dong border crossing (An Phu district).

Mountain, Forest and Minority

With an area of about 280ha and moderate height of 241m, Sam mountain is a very popular tourist destination that anyone visiting Chau Doc has to visit. Tra Su forest is worth a visit because it is a surprisingly beautiful landscape around 25 kilometers from Chau Doc. Whether you are the person who is interested in watching the bird or just looking for a quiet time in a stunning natural setting. There are a handful of nature reserves and bird sanctuaries. Tra Su is home to a rich array of bird and other wildlife that lives among the canals and cajuput trees.

Ba Chuc Tomb – Ba Chuc Crypt

Ba Chuc’s memorial, 40 km south of Chau Doc, stands as a ghastly reminder of the horrors perpetrated by the Khmer Rouge. Between 18 April and 30 April 1978, the Khmer Rouge killed 3157 villagers here, leaving only two survivors. The memorial consists of two parts: the ossuary housing the skulls and bones of more than 1100 victims; and the memorial room next door, displaying wrenching post-massacre photos. Between 1975 and 1978 Khmer Rouge soldiers regularly crossed the border into Vietnam and slaughtered innocent civilians. Over the border, things were even worse, with nearly two million Cambodians killed during the period of Pol Pot’s Democratic Kampuchea regime. In the ossuary, designed to resemble a flowering lotus, the skulls and bones are divided by age group (including the minute skulls of toddlers and babies) and gender. This collection resembles Cambodia’s Choeung Ek killing fields, where thousands of skulls of Khmer Rouge victims are on display, but as it’s clean, sterile and well lit, with a spot to leave offerings in the centre, it appears almost cheerful compared to what confronts you next door. The memorial room showcases the weapons used by the Khmer Rouge (knives, bayonets and cudgels) and sticks used for torture, particularly of women. Many of the Ba Chuc victims were tortured to death. The photos are for strong stomachs only. The bottoms of walls at the Phi Lai Tu Temple behind the memorial room are still stained dark with the blood of the slain; more than 300 villagers were slaughtered inside. The Vietnamese government might have had other motives for invading Cambodia at the end of 1978, but certainly outrage at the Ba Chuc massacre was a major one. Ba Chuc is 4km south of the road running parallel to the Cambodian border between Ha Tien and Chau Doc. The site was extensively renovated to mark the 40-year commemoration of the massacre in 2018…  Read more info & pictures

If tourists visit Chau Doc in the period of Sene Dolta Day of Khmer People in Mekong Delta (from the 9th to the 10th day in Lunar Calendar), they can participate in the Cow Racing Festival. This festival has existed for a long time in the Seven Mountains Region of An Giang Province with the purpose of expressing gratitude toward ancestors. The unique and interesting point of cow racing is that two cows are tied by a special rake. After the signal whistle of the referee, the driver will hit into the cows’ asses with a tow. However, this driver must be very skillful in hitting two cows with the same energy to make them run with the same speed. According to the rule, a pair of cows running out of the racing course must get out of the competition. In addition, the driver must stand steadily on the rake because falling out of the rake will be considered a loser. The pair of cows trampling on the rake of the front pair will be the winner. During the race, pairs of cows and their drivers are always encouraged and urged by the inspiring and exciting atmosphere of simmering cheers and applause. Coming to the Cow Racing Festival, tourists will experience unique cultural festivals which can only be seen in Vietnam’s Mekong Delta…  Read more info & pictures

Free Wi-Fi can be found everywhere from hotels to coffee shops. If you are from the EU you should be able to use your own data plan too. Or contact the hotel for the sim card.

Tap water is supposed to be safe but I advise against drinking it. It’s just not worth the risk. My advice is to use bottled water and save yourself from unexpected stomach problems.

Learn a little Vietnamese:

Sure, you can get by with just speaking English, but trying to speak the local language opens you up to much more polite & meaningful interactions with people. Even if you are not perfect or you make a mistake, your effort is appreciated. At a bare minimum: Hello = xin chao (sin chow), yes = dạ vâng, no = không (khom), thank you = cám ơn (kahm uhn), I’m sorry = tôi xin lỗi (toy sin loy), no problem/you’re welcome = không có gì (khong koh zi), goodbye = tạm biệt (tarm byeet), I’m vegetarian = tôi ăn chay (toy an chayh), How much? = bao nhiêu? (baow nyew), spicy/hot (cay), Oh My God (ôi..choy…oi…).

Best time to visit Chau Doc floating market , Long Xuyen floating market is from 5:30am-6:30am. I hope you have an amazing sunrise on the Mekong Delta river.

You can stay in a homestay which is near the floating market, this will help you out the best option. Then you can hire a scooter, car or bike and explore it by yourself, but you still need to hire a boat for the floating market tour.

If you plan to extend your travel to Chau Doc homestay, do not forget to bring mosquito repellent cream.

Visit Chau Doc or do any customized tours, please choose reputable providers with boat trips equipped with lifebuoys, jackets, motorcycle and cycling tours with the helmets and. Safety is a priority! Choose Chau Doc responsible tours which help you give back while traveling. It’s a cliché, but it’s true.

Chau Doc food & drink guide ranges from street food, authentic, fancy to fusion foods. As a tropical land of many fresh vegetables and homegrown gardens, which always make Chau Doc cuisines fresh, close to nature and very traditional. If you are a food lover, don’t hesitate to put other bites onto your food lists such as Bun Ca Chau Doc (the soft noodle is cooked with fish), Banh bo cake of Chau Doc, Sugar palm fruit , Caramelized and Braised Catfish , Grilled Rice-field Rat with Salt and Chili , Long Xuyen Broken Rice , Nui Cam Pancake , O Thum’s Chicken Grilled with Lime Leaves , Sour Soup with Siamese Mud Carp Soup & Sesbania Flower , Stir-fried Shrimp with Sesbania Flower , Phu Huong Beef Noodle Soup , Basa Fish Hotpot , Mam (Fermented Fish) …

Bring your hat, sunglasses, and sunblock, scarf to wear when visiting temples, pagodas, and the cathedral.

Bring the raincoat if you’re planning a trip to Chau Doc in the rainy season, as Chau Doc always looks fantastic in the full rain and full sun.

Chau Doc tourist attractions are magnificent itself, but if you have enough time, don’t forget to put other places onto your bucket lists such as Tra Su Cajuput forest & Birdwatching , Chau Doc Floating Village, Fish Farm & Cham Minority Village, Chau Doc floating market & small canal , Sam mountain , Tuc Dup hill , Chau Doc river tour , Chau Doc cycling tour, Chau Doc photography tour, Ta Pa Rice Fields , Vinh Te Canal , Seven-Mountain Ox Racing Festival , Tay An Pagoda , Chau Doc Market , The Lady Temple – The Ba Chua Xu Temple , Phuoc Dien Pagoda – Hang Pagoda , Thoai Ngoc Hau Tomb ,

From neighboring provinces, you can go to Sapa by self-driving car or bus. With a travel time of about 6-7 hours. But we would like to recommend choosing a sleeper bus or night train and departing the night before to take advantage of a rest.

After reaching Sapa town, you continue to travel by motorbike or taxi along the 4D highway for about 30 minutes to arrive.

Rong May Glass Bridge Sapa : A Complete Travel Guide

Rong may glass bridge, the can't-be-missed attraction in sapa.

Rong May Glass Bridge, which is translated into English : Rong - Dragon, May - Cloud leading to its English name Cloud Dragon Glass Bridge

It was put into operation in November 2019 and is more than 2,000 meters above sea level. It is currently the highest glass bridge in Vietnam.

Although tourists have heard of Bach Long glass bridge in Moc Chau, Son La, the one in Sapa is even more magnificent and modern. The bridge spans the O Quy Ho Pass and hugs the Hoang Lien Son mountain range, extending outwards up to 60 meters with a total length of 300 meters in a circular shape with 4 walkways spreading out in 4 directions, ensuring the sturdiness and solidity of the bridge.

Glass Bridge Sapa

The tempered glass floor of the bridge is designed with 3 layers, with a total thickness of 7cm and bonded with materials that can withstand high weight. The walkway is spacious and the length of the bridge is up to 50 meters.

To visit the bridge, you can choose to walk or take the elevator. However, I suggest you take the elevator because it saves time and gives you the feeling of floating on air. In just over a minute, you can reach the top of the mountain wall while enjoying the scenery outside through the entire glass elevator.

Where is Rong May Glass Bridge located?

Rong May Glass Bridge is located in Tam Duong district, Lai Chau province. Due to its proximity to Sapa (about 18km from the town of Sapa), this destination is commonly known as Sapa Glass Bridge and attracts a large number of visitors.

Discovering the thrilling experiences on Sapa Glass Bridge

There are many exciting and interesting things to do at the Rong May Glass Bridge. You can participate in many adventurous activities as well as enjoy the majestic beauty of the Hoang Lien Son mountain range.

1. Walking on clouds

With the name of Cloud Dragon Glass Bridge, can you imagine what it's made of? The bridge is entirely made of transparent glass, with a height of over 2000m. Walking on this bridge, you will feel like you are floating in mid-air, surrounded by a vast and magnificent sky. Looking down, you will see a breathtaking valley. Sometimes, at that height, you can even see clouds passing beneath your feet through the glass floor. It's like a scene from a fairy tale, where celestial beings travel on clouds.

Glass Bridge Sapp- walking

2. Walking on the suspension bridge

If the glass bridge doesn't give you enough excitement, then you can try walking on the suspension bridge. The wooden planks are connected by sturdy ropes, with a length of about 200 meters and 171 wooden steps below in a steep valley. But don't worry, if you walk on the suspension bridge, you will be equipped with protective gear such as a helmet, a safety harness connected to sturdy cables at the head and two cables at the waist. So, relax and enjoy this thrilling experience!

There is also a high-altitude restaurant where you can easily move and enjoy a cup of coffee while admiring the mountains. This is also a place for those who suffer from fear of heights to take shelter and watch brave people conquer this bridge. If you do conquer this bridge, remember not to bring your phone to avoid the risk of losing it forever.

3.Bungee Jumping

Bungee jumping is one of the adventurous games at the Rong May Glass Bridge tourist site. This game has been popular for a long time, but only recently has it been available in Vietnam. Here, you will wear a protective harness and jump from the high glass bridge. After a while, you will be pulled up. With a height of over 300 meters, this is the highest bungee point in Southeast Asia, giving you a breathtaking feeling. Enjoy this thrilling moment, you will feel truly "yomost" and can also shout out loud in the vast sky.

4. Zipline on the glass bridge

This is also a thrilling game when you travel to Sapa, including a long cable connecting two points. With this game, you must wear protective gear and then slide down from the top of the mountain. From here, you will feel like crossing the forest and can see the whole picture of the Northwest mountains. In beautiful sunny weather, the image of the Northwest mountains seems to be within your reach.

On the way to the Love waterfall, you can also admire the beauty of "Suoi Vang" (Golden Stream). The reason for its name is that the stream is paved with stones, and when the sunlight shines down on the stream, it reflects on the stones, making the stream sparkle with a golden color, hence the name "Suoi Vang". To reach Thac Tinh Yeu, you have to cross this stream, just like you wash away all the dust to reach the beautiful Thac Tinh Yeu. You can easily see images of children playing in the stream, sometimes there are diligent boys helping their mothers to do laundry here.

How to get to Sapa Cloud Dragon Glass Bridge?

Best time to visit Sapa Glass Bridge?

The Rong May Glass Bridge is a captivating destination for tourists in all four seasons, offering a unique experience during each one

Generally, the months of September to November offer the most pleasant weather, with cool temperatures and low humidity. During these months, the sky is usually clear, providing excellent visibility and making it a great time to capture stunning views of the surrounding mountains and valleys from the bridge.

However, if you are interested in seeing the unique phenomenon of clouds rolling in and around the mountains, the months of December to March may be more suitable, as this is the foggy season in the area. During this time, the glass bridge and surrounding mountains are often covered in a thick blanket of mist, creating a mystical and dreamy atmosphere.

It's worth noting that the Sapa Glass Bridge can be quite crowded during peak tourist season from June to August, so if you prefer a quieter experience, it may be best to avoid these months. Ultimately, the best time to visit the Sapa Glass Bridge depends on your interests and preferences, but it's always recommended to check the weather forecast before your trip to ensure optimal conditions for your visit.

I hope you havent't forgot us.  If you have I have included a photo of us in attach file.I promised to e-mail you when we get back.  Sorry for the delay but we had so much shit to sort out when we've got back home.

Thanks very much for giving us a tour of Hanoi.  Without you two, we would of missed a hell of a lot of Hanoi which we never had the time to explore.

When we were in the south, we came across a lot of English and Irish backpackers that were heading to Hanoi and we've recomended you and the taxi driver Binh to them.  I hope they contact you two when they get to Hanoi and give you business.

So so much had changed since I left Vietnam.  Some changes are positive and a lot of negatives but people link yourself and Binh will keep up the traditions.

I hope that you will get this e-mail.  If you do please reply.

Since we've came home, I've had so many ideas about starting a business venture in Vietnam and and hoping that you might want to be  be part of the it.

Dear Ban, 

Sorry for being late.

I tried to write you a letter several times, but I couldn't finish the letter. I don't know why.

I am still in winter vacation, so I have been very lazy, frankly speaking. And I miss you and the other good people I met in Vietnam. You cannot imagine how much it is!! As for our meeting, let's put it aside for my next trip, possibly that would be the coming August. At that time, we can have time to talk a lot about Vietnamese school system and other interesting things. Don't you think??

And I am so happy to know that you think my voice is tender  in different songs... *^^*

By the way, how's it going with your new business? Is it going well? I'm sure you will be successful because you are quite ambitious and intelligent. You agree, Ban?? ^^

When my school starts, I cannot tell anything about Vietnam without talking about you to my students... I get impressed a lot, surely yu know that. Right?

I will attach the picture you took together in my next mail because my camera battery is out. Sorry about that!!

It's Saturday today. I wonder what you are doing at this moment in Vietnam when I am writing to you. Keep in touch often. OK?? ^^

Take care and be well & happy

Your friend,

Hwayoung Lee from Korea

Hello Mr Ban, What a surprise to hear from you and a good one. yes I do remember you quite well....as Black Dan? Is this right?  It has been 5 years since I was in your country. a long time, but I remember how bright and funny you were and also how polite!!! So, have you a family to look after now? A wife and some beautiful children?  I hope all is well with you and you have plenty of work to do. I am taking a break at my work as it is Christmas time here and everything stops and family get together. I know you have TET around the corner and I wish you much success and good fortune for the next year. Which animal will it be next year for TET, I wonder? And which year you born in?  I am still working with flowers. Iam known as a florist and my job keeps me pretty busy. I enjoy it very much as I love to make beautiful things from flowers and stones, dried things from Mother Nature and sometimes with man made stuff as well. It is quite funny that you emailed me at this time as I have been thinking of coming over to Vietnam alot lately and may do next year sometime. I missed out on a few places I would love to go ( Hoi Ann), and re visit some places I have been to last time. Are you still a guide? All the best.
