Viet Nam: Anything other than portraits

Challenge #4 in the around the world in 80 ways series. Hosted by santamonica812.
Challenge has finished
Viet Nam has everything: Spectacular mountainous landscapes, idyllic beaches, fascinating temples. This challenge is for everything related to Viet Nam other than portraits. Those will be DQ'd. But everything else is fair game. If you had only one image to express what VN means to a viewer, what would you show us? It is just fine to have one or more people in your photo. No person in the image should take up more than 5% of the frame. I'll try to monitor this challenge closely and will let entrants know if I think there is a problem--and I'll do this in a timely fashion, so that people will have plenty of time to re-submit new images if necessary. Please, no images that you've already used in prior challenges . . . let's see something fresh and new from you. (I will likely depend on help from other challenge participants in tracking down violators. So, images that are repeats could be DQ'd at any time . .. even after the challenge ends!) Thanks in advance for this. :-)
