A sign on one of the walls inside this gate clearly dates from the communist era because it describes this arch in the following disapproving way: "At the northeastern end of the LaneXang Ave arises a huge structure resembling the Arc de Triomphe. It is the Patuxay or Victory Gate of Vientiane, built in 1962 (B.E 2505), but never complete due to the country's turbulent history. From a closer distance, it appears even less impressive, like a monster of concrete.
Wood hut in the grounds of the Museum of Ethnology. Many tribes from different parts of Vietnam were invited to build authentic examples of their hut building style for the museum.
Students touch turtle heads in the Temple of Literature for good luck in their exams.
(Wouldn't it be better if they spent more time revising?)
