Burnt Car in Thien Mu Pagoda
Favorite thing: In 1963, in a defying act against the Diem regime, Thich Quang Duc (monk) burned himself in downtown Saigon. Today, the car that took him to Saigon is stored in the rear of Thien Mu Pagoda
Family Boat on the Perfume River
Fondest memory: I love watching these boats ply the Perfume River. It amazes me that entire families can fit inside of these things.
Tu Duc sepulchre
Favorite thing: Tu Duc's tomb is a simple bloc at the end of several patios and after many open door gates.
Its son's tomb has the same structure but in a smaller size.
