  1. Those statuses and poles/columns were made from real woods. They are probably hundreds of years old. I have not visited this temple yet and will add it to my bucket list for the next trip in 2 years. Thank you for sharing.

  2. Like the Vatican and Jesus
    Buddha would not approve of all the gold
    too materialistic a departure from
     the 4 noble truths
     the 8 fold path

  3. Hey Gabriel, not sure if you've discussed this yet in any of your videos, but have you seen this?

  4. the religious area in Vietnam looks like 170 times cleaner than India and Bangladesh , may be Hindu people like to live like 2000 years ago ????

  5. Interesting, kinda reminiscent of Lumbini, Nepal with the multiple temples and sprawling footprint….Buddhist Disneyland!

  6. Gabe: I am watching your videos looking for signs of any personal chemistry with that girl you are traveling with. So far I have not seen any. You seem to be strangers and ill at ease. Tell me if I am wrong?

  7. Your channel content is great, if you plan to go to Sapa, please visit my channel for reference because I have recently traveled there. please.

  8. That's Chinese script on the buildings right? And that architecture definitely looks Chinese. Maybe China invaded Vietnam at some point in the past and built these temples?

  9. always no , full of no hollywood magic , amazing videos seem vietnam have lot to see , uload 4897289 videos in 3 days , 🙂 , and you dont loose the magic , really enjoy this channel , you pick the perfect music 🙂 , dont loose the touch ! , pick perfect camera , perfect music , so….. eyyyy i watch an gabriel video so gonna take an plane or taxi , or bus , or train , or boat and go away 🙂

  10. Nice video Gabe… The GoPro seems to be working ok again.. Quality was great.. and sound as well was good.. The more i'm seeing of Vietnam the more interested I am. To be honest I didn't know much about the place b4 your videos.. Safe Travels to both of you 🙂

  11. It's sad to see some of these temples turned into tourist attractions. It should be a tranquil place for prayers and worship. I don't see throng of tourists dragging shorts, tank tops and flip flops through a church or mosque

  12. I am sure someone has probably ,mentioned to you the city of HUE is not pronounced Who-Ah but pronounced Way. I was there in 1968 and also returned in 2016. I am enjoying your travels around Vietnam. I was stationed in Hue and Dong Ha and also Quang Tri.
