The welcoming rice bowl of Vietnam

Trà Ôn

Located just where the main flow of the Mekong branches East towards the First River through the Nicolai canal, Trà Ôn, in the province of Vĩnh Long, is a sleepy little town with at times its own charming floating market, and a pagoda that once was very important for Vietnam Buddhism: the Phước Hậu pagoda.

Tổ Định Phước Hậu is where the texts of Buddhism were translated from Chinese into Vietnamese at the turn of the XXth Century, making them available to the people without the agency of monks.
