Saigon Vietnam Date:1969, February Duration:1 min 37 sec Sound:NO SOUND
Heavily crowded street scenes during Tet (New Year) festival with celebrants dressed up for the occasion. This temple known as Lang Ong, is located about 5 kilometers north-east of Saigon center. Vehicular traffic includes cars, two-wheelers and cycle-rickshaws. Large number Vietnamese enter a Buddhist temple. People light incense sticks. (Usually after that they would shake a long canister to shuffle the sticks inside, then pull out one to read the message already written to reveal the future.) People gather in a circle to witness the traditional lion dance performed by two artists.
