This fortress is settled along the Nam River, where a battle took place with the Japanese. There are many great photo ops, and the history is incredible. I would recommend visiting during the annual Lantern Festival in early October.

Pretty cool overall. Good open space, very cool architecture. Would probably be better in the spring or summer!
