Qhi Nhon - Vietnam

530 miles south of Hanoi, in Vietnam's Central Champa Kingdom, lies the city of Qui Nhon. It reached its claim to fame in 1799 when a French missionary, M. Pigneau de Behaine, died here while closing in on the city under the rule of Tay Son. Earlier in 1792, and then again later in 1801, Tay Son's Navy vessels were destroyed near the harbor of Qui Nhon under the order of Nguyen Anh, the former leader of Vietnam. Today this city offer visitors a chance to see the Cham ruins, Quang Trung Museum and two important Hung Tanh Towers, believed to date from the 13th century.
