We have reached the historic and atmospheric city Hoi An.
The five ‘mountains’ are named after the five elements; Kim (metal), Thuy (water), Moc (wood), Hoa (fire) and Tho (earth). In the mountains are several Buddhist and Hindu sanctuaries inside caves and tunnels featuring statuary and relief depictions of religious scenes carved out of the marble.
In Danang on the Son Tra Peninsula you find the marble statue of Bodhisattva of Mercy, also known as Lady Buddha.
