We should not compare Hue Imperial Closure with the Chinese Kings’ palaces. Indeed, Vietnam is a small country vs. the giant neighbour but Vietnam has its own tradition. Every archiectures of Vietnam is small but charm, like Vietnamese people usually say “Vietnam, the hidden charm”. In contrast, China style is something “huge”, “imposing” and often “to show off”.
Should not compare My Son Holy Land with Siem Reap Angkor temples. Each site symbols for an independent empire. In Vietnam, it’s Champa vibrant kingdom dominating Central Vietnam from the 5th to the 17th century, while Angkor wonders is the ancient capital of Khmer people until the 15th century only. My Son is “the only evidence of a lost empire in South East Asia”, the reason why UNESCO recognises it as a World heritage.
Tra Que herb village, 4km on the outskirts of Hoi An, is a must for who loves this countryside old town. Because most tours bring tourists to the village in the morning, we arrange your sightseeings in the afternoon to avoid noise and touristic atmosphere.
