By the silk lake (right next to the west lake) there is a small monument where senator John McCains plane was shot down during the Vietnam war.
John McCains plane landed in the Silk lake and he later spend a long time in vietnamese prison before being send back to America where he persued a political career.
The monument is, according to my vietnamese friends, more of a peace monument than a war monument actually and itīs a small humble thing sitting by the lake on the pavement.
