The history of pho is not ancient: although there is little written history. It is believed that this delicious noodle soup came in to existance after French colonisation - it is the French who popularised the consumption of red meat. The word pho is also believed to be a variant of the French "feu" (meaning "fire", which has identical pronunciation to pho).The French also have a traditional beef stew called "Pot au Feu", made from slowly cooking cartilaginous pieces of beef for many hours under low heat. The rice noodles and mixed herbs used in the dish are of Chinese influence. from the Dragons Host.

Drinks & Nightlife

We sampled the amazing beers of Heart of Darkness. My favourite was the Primeval Forest Pilsner, but the Pitiless Folly Pale Ale, Sacred Fire Golden Ale and Kurtz Insane IPA were amazing in their variety and complexity. Vietnam is a huge beer consuming society; the bar has been substantially raised. Sailor1003 from the Dragons host.

Jade Emperor Pagoda was built in the period 1892-1900 and covers an area of 2,300 m2 following Chinese architectural design. In 1984, the pagoda was renamed Phuoc Hai Tu (Luck Sea Temple), but locals still preferred the old name ‘Ngoc Hoang’ (Jade Emperor) since the sanctum is to worship the supreme Taoist god. The pagoda is filled with parallel sentences, triptych, altars and statues of phantasmal divinities and grotesque heroes depicting characters from both Buddhist and Taoist Lores. This is the only pagoda in Vietnam possessing the ancient paper statue which represents the meetings of the Jade Emperor and other Gods. Ngoc Hoang Pagoda was visited by U.S President Barack Obama
