This archipelago has more than ten islands. We do not know exactly when Vietnamese settled the first village in Con Dao. Perhaps the earliest one was built in three hundred years, or nearly four hundred years, when the group of Vietnamese migration from the north, central to the south for various reasons.

But Con Dao is still alive; it has many legends in the hearts of the residents here and in the ground, in the visible objects, can get their hands on. In war time, this used to be known as a scariest hell in Vietnam.

When being chased by Tay Son army, Nguyen Anh runs to Con Dao. Along the way, he wanted to ask help from the French, Phi Yen tried to persuade him not asking French for help. Nguyen Anh was angry and locked her in the cave until she died. Cai prince cried and asked to stay with her. Nguyen Anh threw him to the sea without hesitate.

Since the French intervention in Vietnam, where they founded a prison. The first is that officers detained the Can Vuong was arrested in the South, followed by patriotic scholars across all three regions. Many big names such as Phan Chu Trinh, Nguyen An Ninh, Ton Duc Thang, Pham Van Dong, Nguyen Binh, Tran Huy Lieu, Ngo Gia Tu, Le Hong Phong, Nguyen Van Cu, Le Duan ... did "living "here. Among the prisoners in Con Dao, there is the genuine communist. There is the Kuomintang. There are regular prisoners. Then there are all prisoners. There was a sentence in prison and juvenile prison sentence ...

Compared with the French, the Americans simply building more prisons, smaller and lower, but the horror is not inferior. At the Peak period, Con Dao had more than ten thousand prisoners of all kinds. More than twenty thousand Vietnam remains patriotic people still scattered all over the place, most Hang Duong cemetery, Hang Keo.

Hue people with Bun bo Hue

My aunt – a woman is 84 years old, overseas Vietnamese in France - explained: "Do you know what I miss? ... Missing the homeland."
For travelers:

Cook a delicious noodle pot way of Hue is a contemplative process, exploration of "the ancients". Bun is soft and tough fibers must, wet, sweet. The famous restaurant in Hue noodles themselves do not have to buy their noodles in the village of Van Cu, Bao Vinh - two villages specializing in Hue noodle from 2-10 km. In addition to noodles, secrecy is in turmoil pot cooking techniques.
Noodles in water, only to find the sweet taste of water flesh tunnel - achieve two requirements that are difficult, but with a nod to the customers enjoying their food, the cook must have a spicy secrets, namely that art wedge procession, the characteristics of the bun bo Hue.

How do the dishes still in the water, but not with strong smell procession. O LET - 64 years old - selling noodle stall at number 6 Ba Trieu - who has over 20 years in selling noodles, "Unveiled": "It is the procession of Thuan An, mixed with the water in a separate saucepan, bring to the boil, remove Clean foam, so it's cool, just take the top layer of water to cook. Thus be avoided foul procession ". The selection of meats to cook as well as an important factor: the meat must be fresh. Thus in Hue noodle sellers got up from 3 am to slaughterhouses for their meat.

But not "every day as a day", with a pot noodle Hue, the seasonal cooking to the quarterfinals. Summer is lighter than the salt, there is always next disk for raw vegetables, banana porcelain, basil, cilantro looks just eat the loss that the noise level.

Hue winter dresses for special rain, bitter cold skin, cook the noodles to taste darker note; besides, add some water to the pot boring lemongrass noodles, just stop to smell the aroma of lemongrass see more outdoor warm despite the pouring rain. Even more cups of sauce to use with bun bo Hue also is noted: the kind of fish sauce, thinly sliced red pepper slices cooked sauce beams. Want to eat spicy, use more peppers sliced thin, not "hear" the pungent smell of spicy chili, but only with the warm, dark strange!

Hue, go any which way you can also catch a bun or a few selling points, there are shops selling point of the house, but mostly you will see the burden bun sidewalk or street vendors. The main burden of the bun was very crowded, so delicious, just convenient, but affordable prices "parts shop" but a gourmet's Hue: 2.000d/ bowl to trishaw riders, his wagon; 3.000d/ bowl  for sale you go early or employees; 4000 - 5.000d/ bowl for customers to more and 6.000d - for visitors to 9.000d/ bowl more. Although visitors to or poor, all attentive service. So, until about 9 am, many noodle shops were gone of Bun bo Hue.

Place the rings on the shoulder ball pole, a pair of aligned clouds (clouds aligned ethos is not aligned in rows of steel as she Saigon), the noodle restaurant in Hue her sleep late and get up early though, sun oil ranges but when she rows to rain, you still get the beautiful smile and the word "labor", no-pounding holy as the daughter of that charming "internal wind flow direction" of Thuy An village.
The majority of prostitutes are bun bo Hue countryside burden in Thuy An (a regional agricultural production and small business, near the city center 3 km). Here, has formed a semi-bun village, every family has one or two bear bun. Especially the mother, daughters, daughters are sold bun. It is because of this that the burden of noodles to feed her family; children have mothers into the school year; have her sister, mother and father both died young adopted children to school due to a shoulder just noodles!

Where not only is the food, the food is associated with culture and history. Then where is the specification of Hue beef noodle bowl again, but this time you're faced her mind noodle restaurant on River Huong Giang, about what was hidden inside humans Hue.

There are 12 homes beam are extremely rare, have a lifespan of 150-200 years, time shiny black wooden columns, trusses, regular, rectangular, horizontal board, the department, door carving intricate puzzle... not lost less the wooden structures in the palace dynasty.

Typical of the old house as his house beam Ho Dinh Lan, old worked as district chief. From a front entrance, shallow pools designed by the town style. More than 100 years old which store the column was polished wooden meetings. Between the horizontal images of the king was Duy Tan (1909 - 1916) are credited with integrity. Or as specific house was 200 years old Truong Cong Tien, three architectural styles left two spaces, deep roof tile paralysis has brown, mossy brick wall. The department store black dark. Large yard, front immense Bat Trang brick...

Most houses in Phuoc Tich beam are associated with extensive gardens until 1000 - 1.500m2, the tea house separated by a row boat straight undercut, creating a green space close to that neck strange glass.

In ancient beam house that we like to see as deposition time on items from hundreds of years ago. That's where the jar vase lime was high under thick layers of time, then drink tray, wooden food tray, assorted jars, sauce jars, salt, water jars by the village's pottery manufacturing ago was several hundred years and still maintain a daily basis, people still travel with as sediments of the time, recalls the heyday of the pottery village.

That is why almost Phuoc Tich from past to present, virtually none of illiteracy, a rare thing for an ancient village of Phuoc Tich like sucking pig.

Today, the pottery village of only a legacy of the past, no longer economic life past its heyday, but the foundation of the village was studious wings flies away. This explains why, in the village now mostly elderly, young children but who also thorough history of the village as the first lesson in life. It is this has surprised researchers and tourists witnessed behaviors very culture of the people of Phuoc Tich on his father’s legacy.

Vestiges of ancient pottery remains are kept; the villagers also dedicated a land called alcohol Treng to store old pottery shards as a museum of traditional villages.
