  • I’d seen this before, but this afternoon is was largely deserted except for a young girl flying a kite. But there is something great about the history and seeing the huge Vietnam flag flying proudly.

  • A must take photo! Sunny afternoon is the best time for the photo. Many people exercising/running/kids playing in the evening
  • We saw it the first on a perfume River cruise to the Thien Mu Pogoda. Then again when we visited the Citadel. It is the largest flagpole in Viet Nam, 120 feet. Originally erected in 1807, destroyed by a typhoon in 1904 , rebuilt to be destroyed again in 1947 and finally rebuilt in 1948.
