The Vietnam Museum of Ethnology  is a museum in Hanoi, Vietnam, which focuses on the 54 officially recognized ethnic groups in Vietnam. It is located about 8 km from the city center.

It is considered to be the finest modern museum in Vietnam and a tourist attraction in Hanoi.

The Museum is divided into two parts: an indoor and an outdoor exhibition. The indoor part is composed of the exhibition building, office, research center, library, auditorium. The outdoor exhibition is to highlight different types of houses in all parts of Vietnam.

I strongly recommended the visit of this museum, it’s a unique experience and a great opportunity to have a better understanding of Vietnam history, culture and people.

In this gallery there are some of the pictures i took during my visit at the Hanoi Ethnology museum

Vung Tàu is a city in southern Vietnam. It is the capital of Ba Ria-Vung Tau Province, and is the crude oil extraction center of Vietnam. It is also known as one of the most beautiful cities of tourism in Vietnam. Locating near Ho Chi Minh city and Binh Duong province, Vungtau associates with these two places to create a triangle of power economy all over the country.

We spent some days in this beautiful city, we were hosted in the lovely Lan Rung Resort, perfect place for relaxing, for the good food and to enjoy the sea :)

In this Gallery there are some pictures taken in Vung Tau.

The Ho Chí Minh Mausoleum  is a large memorial to the Vietnamese leader in Hanoi, Vietnam. It is located in the center of Ba Ðình Square, which is the place where Ho read the Declaration of Independence on September 2, 1945, establishing the Democratic Republic of Vietnam.

I have been visited this wonderful memorial few years ago, but i don’t have any pictures of it from the  inside as photography is strictly prohibited.

During my last trip to Vietnam,one night , we were walking in that area so i had a good opportunity to get some night shoot from the oustide.

In this gallery there are few pictures taken that night.
