The salt fields at Phan Thiet City, Binh Thuan Province, South-Central Vietnam air travel, have long been an infinite source of inspiration for poetry, music, arts and cinematography. My story of flocks of storks reflected on the salt fields of Phan Thiet began in 1999.

It all started in March of that year, when I began the practice of taking pictures of wild animals. I lived in Phan Thiet, and had to take my child to school at five a.m. every day. We went along the salt fields, and I noticed one of the storks’ strange habits.



From five to six a.m., just before sunrise, hundreds of storks gathered on the salt fields. But at about seven, when the sun was up, there were only a few of them left. Where did they go, and why? Every day, more and more of them gathered there. I decided to bring my camera each morning.

At six, when my kid was in class, I came back to the salt fields. The first day, when I came within about 200 metres from them, they flew away. The next day, I came to the same spot and stopped. I stood there till seven, when the siren announced working time.

They flew away one by one, and I went to work. The third day I came closer, about 180 metres from them, and they paid no attention to me. I continued advancing day after day until I was standing about 50 metres from the storks, free to photograph them while they went on chit-chatting carelessly.



Once, while I was deep into photography, the birds suddenly panicked, because a man came within about 100 metres from them. So they were afraid of the man, not of me. Why? It rained one night in May. The next morning, I came with my usual enthusiasm to carry on with my photography.

But strangely, on that day and many days after that, on the salt fields there were only a few lone storks, and they didn’t gather together. I was able to understand why only many months later. Why were the birds not afraid of me, but of someone else who was over 100 metres from them? Because during the two months I followed them, I always wore the same green uniform, repeating the same movements that caused no danger.

They found me harmless and got used to me. Why did they gather only from five to six a.m. and flew away when the sun was up? It’s because there are two kinds of salt fields. One holds sea water, the other makes salt. March, April and May are the hottest, dryest months of the year. The water holders dry out quickly. The fish surface more often to get air and the water is shallow.

That is a festive time for the birds, for the eating is good. When the sun is up, the field’s surface is like a mirror. The reflection makes the water hot, forcing the birds to go looking for food elsewhere. So, to take pictures of the stork flocks on salt fields, photographers have to come there during March, April and May, work before sunrise, and know how to make friends with them, just as I did. If one misses the opportunity, after just one rain, the water level will go up, and the birds won’t return until the next year.

Tran Quoc is a spiritual anchor for the nation and its kings

Tran Quoc is the name of Hanoi’s oldest and most sacred pagoda. Nearly 1500 years old, it used to receive kings in Buddhist memorial days and host famous Buddhist monks who came here to practice their religion.

Occupying a promontory at the northwest corner of the West Lake in Yen Phu ward, West Lake district of Hanoi, Tran Quoc has been officially recognised as a national relic of history and culture since 1989. According to the Vietnam air travel Cultural Heritage Dictionary, ‘Originally named Khai Quoc (meaning ‘Nation Founding’) Tran Quoc was built during King Ly Nam De’s (544–548) reign in Yen Hoa Village.

In 1615, it was moved to what used to be the foundation of Thuy Hoa back hall and Han Nguyen Palace near Yen Phu dyke, the previous Kings’ favourite place for fishing and relaxation. From 1624 to 1639, Khai Quoc was continually expanded and later King Le Hy Tong renamed it Tran Quoc.

The beginning of the Nguyen Dynasty (1802- 1945) the pagoda was renovated and acquired a bigger bell and Buddha statues. In 1821, King Minh Mang visited it and gave 20 silver taels for its renovation. In 1842, King Thieu Trị also visited Tran Quoc and contributed one big gold coin and 200 quan (the currency of the time).’ Tran Quoc was like a spiritual anchor for the nation and its kings.

Historical texts also recorded that Tran Quoc had hosted famous Buddhist monks such as His Venerable Khuong Viet Chan Luu and High Zen Priests Van Phong, Thao Duong, Thong Bien, Giac Quan and Quang Te. Having been renovated multiple times, Tran Quoc architecture shows ‘harmonious continuity between historical eras,’ as noted by cultural experts.

The main architectural units of Tran Quoc pagoda includes the Front Hall, Incense Ward, Upper Edifice, Bell Tower, Ancestral Shrine and House of Steles. The experts don’t mention much about the carvings and artwork at Tran Quoc.

They simply remark that ‘some details are painstakingly well done.’ About the overall architectural and scenic values of the pagoda, the general opinion is that the antic solemn structures in sternly strict arrangement according to the ancient Buddhist rules and the dreaminess of the West Lake highlight each other well.

Perhaps that’s why the British Daily Mail ranks Tran Quoc among the world’s 15 most beautiful Buddhist pagodas. Having witnessed so many historical ups and downs, the pagoda preserves valuable artefacts, such as the statues in the Upper Edifice, especially the one of Shakyamuni Buddha entering Nirvana, unique and meticulously made in a distinct fashion.

The 14 steles with engraved texts about the foundation and history of the pagoda, including the steles of famous scholars Nguyen Xuan Chinh (1587-1693) and Pham Quy Thich (1760-1825), are also considered highly valuable. Behind the pagoda’s entrance is a ‘garden of towers’ with many old and new towers.

Most attention is drawn to the 11-storey, 15m-tall Six Heaven Tower that houses many Amitabha statues made of precious stones, with 9 layers of stone carved lotuses at the top. Amid the 500ha of West Lake, the pagoda’s 3000 m2 garden stands prominently under the shade of many tree species such as mountain pomegranates, longans, willows, etc.

Buddhists revere the banyan tree planted by President Rajendra Prasad of India when he visited Tran Quoc in 1959.

Quan Chuong is one of the Eastern gates of the earthen fortification that surrounded the Thang Long Citadel. Built in the 10th year of Le Canh Hung reign (1749) and renovated in the 3rd year of Gia Long reign (1817), it remains intact until today. This is one of the 21 gates of the old Thang Long Citadel, a national relic, ranked in 1995.

Today, almost all the other gates are only remembered by names borne by some geographical entity that stands on their place, or by historical records. For example, Cho Dua Gate is now the name of a bazaar, and Cau Giay Gate was known as the name of a brick bridge that crossed To Lich River, without having anything that reminded one of the ancient structures.

Fortunately, Hanoi still has an almost intact gate; Quan Chuong. Located at an end of O Quan Chuong Street, Quan Chuong Gate opens to Red River dykes and Hang Chieu Street behind it. It has cupola form, with a watch tower at the top.

The palate form gate used to have double thick wooden doors which closed at night and opened early in the morning for people to go into and out of town. Through ups and downs of history, Quan Chuong Gate still stands solemnly, preserving for Hanoi a simple but precious structure that witnessed times of peace and war.

On the left side, it has a stele carved in 1882 with instructions from the City Governor Hoang Dieu ordering the gatekeepers not to extort funeral processions that passed the gate. Besides the large passage, the gate also has two small doors on the sides. Above the big door is written ‘Thanh Ha Gate’. Vietnam air travel

That was the gate’s original name, because it opened to Thanh Ha Village on the bank of To Lich River, where it poured into Red River. The village covers the area of Hang Chieu, Thanh Ha and Dao Duy Tu Streets today. The gate took the form we see today in 1817 during a major reconstruction. At the time, it was still called Thanh Ha Gate.

Quan Chuong was the rank of an officer in charge of the city guards. On Nov 20, 1873, the French attacked Hanoi for the first time. Warships coming upstream from the sea brought fire power and strong troops, who immediately stormed the gate. Quan Chuong and over 100 city guards fought fiercely until the last one fell. Since then, Thanh Ha Gate has been named Quan Chuong Gate.

Having taken Hanoi, the French ordered the destruction of old structures to expand the city. Almost everything around was leveled. But the Quan Chuong canton chief Dao Dang Chieu had led the local people’s campaign against the destruction of the gate. They resolutely refused signing the agreement which would have made the destruction legitimate.

It’s because of their strong will that the city retained an invaluable relic of architecture. In 2009, the United States donated $74,500 to Vietnam for the preservation of Quan Chuong Gate. US Ambassador to Vietnam Michael W. Michalak said, ‘Quan Chuong Gate is an astoundingly beautiful architectural relic being eroded by time. It is not simply a landmark gate of the ancient Thang Long citadel, but also a symbol of the spirit and resiliency of the people of Hanoi.
