The Perfume Pagoda

I made it safely to Hanoi, Vietnam after a hellish night of customs checks, off and on loading the train with all my junk, and a pesky train worker who woke me up on the hour to see if I wanted more hot water.  Gotta love it :)

I am going to spend Chinese New Year here in Hanoi and photograph the fireworks, then heading to Halong Bay for a 3 day, 2 night cruise around the islands.  After that I may take a few days and trek around Sapa, where all the beautiful rice terraces are located.  Keep checking back!

Today I took went on a tour to visit the Perfume Pagoda, a series of Buddhist Temples built in to Limestone caves in the Huong Tich Mountains.  The central temple of this complex is the Perfume Temple (seen below).

Thanks for visiting!

    Adam, looks like you’re having a great time on your adventures. Haven’t stopped by in a while, and am going to do some looking around. This most recent picture is amazing. Do you have anymore photos of the cave? Looks like a magnificent place to see.
