Do you remember the Doi Vien Handbook that mentions the historical event that took place in Nha Rong Harbor in 1911, where Uncle Ho – the beloved old father of the Vietnamese nation, decided to go to find a way to save the country to learn what he thought was “Quintessence and progress.” Currently, this place stores and displays many documents, artifacts, memories and photos related to the revolutionary career of the leader of Ho Chi Minh.

Nha Rong Pier is one of the places to go in Saigon that I want to suggest. Because this place has many profound meanings, learning is worth your time. You will gain a better knowledge of the Vietnamese people’s heroic past when you visit. Thereby, the more trust, love, remember and teach Uncle Ho’s great work. He always devoted himself to the country for the people. The people of Vietnam will forever remember Uncle Ho’s noble sacrifice.
