Vietnam . Hanoi . Central Sector of the Imperial Citadel of Thang Long . Hoàng Diệu, Quán Thánh, Ba Đình
The Imperial Citadel of Thang Long (Vietnamese: Hoàng thành Thăng Long) is the cultural complex comprising the royal enclosure first built during the Lý Dynasty and subsequently expanded by the Trần, Lê and finally the Nguyễn Dynasty. The ruins roughly coincide with the Hanoi Citadel today.
The royal palaces and most of the structures in Thang Long were in varying states of disrepair by the late 19th century with the upheaval of the French conquest of Hanoi. By the 20th century many of the remaining structures were torn down. Only in the 21st century are the ruin foundations of Thang Long Imperial City systematically excavated.
The central sector of the imperial citadel was listed in UNESCO's World Heritage Site on July 31, 2010 at its session in Brazil.

Korea . Busan . BeoMeoSa Temple
The mountain where Beomeosa is found is said to have huge rock at the summit where there is a golden well which never, ever dries up. The water of this well is believed to have very special magical properties as one day a golden fish came from heaven and has lived there ever since.
Beom(범;梵) = nirvana - eo(어;魚) = fish - sa(사;寺) = temple. Thus the name of the temple came to be ＂Heavenly Fish.＂ It is also claimed that the fish came from Nirvana, the Buddhist state of non-suffering. Therefore, the temple also became known as ＂The temple where fish from Nirvana Play.＂
On December 26, 2011, the Los Angeles Times printed a story of the fighting monks at this temple. South Korean Buddhist monk Ando demonstrates Sunmudo martial arts techniques. Monks from Beomeosa Temple are famed for defeating Japanese invaders during the late 16th century and again during the Japanese occupation of Korea in the early 20th century.

Located about 250km south of Seoul in North Jeolla Province, Jeonju is known for its signature cuisine, including dishes like bibimbap (mixed rice and vegetables) and bean sprouts and boiled rice soup (kongnamulgukbap). But there is a lot more to the city than delicious food.
In Jeonju, nearly 800 traditional Korean houses form a large village, keeping alive some of Korea’s best surviving pre-modern architecture and folk culture. It is also home to a number of tourist sites, including a Hanok experience center and a traditional liquor museum.
Located near the entrance of the village is the vividly painted Gyeonggijeon pavilion where the portrait of Lee Seong-gye (1335-1408), or Taejo, the founder of the Joseon Dynasty, is located. Many trees, including a 400-year old ginkgo tree and a stand of bamboo trees, create a charming walking course around the pavilion.
Located across from the pavilion is Jeondong Catholic Church. The beautiful architecture of this church featured in the film, “The Letter” (1997).
