Chua Phuong

Set to the south of town, near the bus station, Chua Phuong sits in a large stand of forest and is worth visiting not so much for the new pagoda but for the ruined old pagoda which sits in the eastern part of the forest enclosure.

No pic at the moment -- Sorry!

It's little more than an overgrown pile of rubble, but it tickled our fancy. Rather amusingly, when we arrived the monks were hanging out with a bunch of spagetti-strap wearing girls -- who all scuttled off into the forest when we appeared!
