Trapped in Ha Tien – Vietnam.

All things close for Lunar New Year. This means the ferries taking me to my next destination, the island of Phu Quoc, will not be running on that day.

Ha Tien

Ha Tien has some geological formations – in the form of limestone caves and outcrops playing host to Buddhist temples and sacred sites.

These are not free to visit.

There are two.

Da Dung mountain

The more impressive of the two, spread out over 3 square KM. A winding path snakes  around the mountain, which is pitted with various caves, which play host to Buddhist statues or flashing lights, or both.

Thatch Dong

Looks better but less to do.

Thatch Dong houses a set of Buddhist relics and a working monastery.

New Café

Got dragged to the New Café in Ha Tien by some locals.

It’s the only place in Ha Tien open after midnight.

It was kicking.
