One of the things that enchants travelers to Asia is the depth and history to the culture – a culture which is so different from our own. I find there are two really great ways to get a good overview understanding of a culture; through food, and through religion.
On Saturday we wrote about the Vietnamese food and today we would like to take you on a journey through some of the countries religious structures. Here we feature ancient pagodas and unique religious practices. The brightly coloured worshipers in some of the photos below are from the unique religion of Cao Dai – found only in Vietnam. Intrigued? Come back next week to learn more about this unique religion, who even has my favourite author, Victor Hugo as a saint.
Did you know this photo used to have heaps of people in it? At one point a scooter even drove past the shot. We used a simple technique called photo stacking to remove all traces of the tour group that was blocking our shot. You can learn how here.
You can reach Vietnam from pretty much any international airport in the world. If you are leaving from the UK, you might want to check out the airport parking offers from our partner www.gatwickparking.com
