  Sun Bridge and Moon Tower
by bpacker

The red bridge at Ho An Kiem has a Vietnamese name that roughly translates to "where the sun light is absorbed" . The bridge leads to Dac Nguyet Lau or "Moon Light tower" which is Ngoc Son shrine. Hmm, the sun and moon meeting. Sounds like a song from Ms Saigon.

The Sun and Moon meets at the Lake of the Restored Sword.

Where:Ho An Kiem Lake, near Old Quarters
