This is our entry in Cee’s Which Way Photo Challenge – July 28, 2017.
We saw this sign each time we walked between our hotel and downtown when we visited Sa Pa, Vietnam. Vietnam is a long, skinny, S-shaped country in Southeast Asia running north-south beside the South China Sea to the east (or “East Sea,” as it is known in Vietnam). By land, Vietnam is bordered by China to the north, by Laos to the northwest, and by Cambodia to the southwest. North-to-south, it measures about 1650 kilometers (just over 1000 miles) and is about 50 kilometers (just over 30 miles) wide at the widest point. In area, it is approximately the size of Germany. Sa Pa is in the northwest, and the cities listed in the first four lines of the bus sign are in the North with Sa Pa. Of the cities in the last line, Hue is about halfway down Vietnam and Ho Chi Minh City (“Saigon”) is in the South.
