Ok, so what's now?
Oct 2019
The most interesting about this statue is that just now I saw the name again, found the information and learned about the man in the Internet. Yes, he was a great figure for Vietnam.
As for the aesthetics of the statue, it points on a foreign tourist, who is frustrated and has no idea how to cross the street. Its glance is not encouraging, but condemning.

A statue
Aug 2019 • Family
An interesting statue in a well kept garden area. It’s not a must see, unless you have a particular interest in it. It’s worth checking out if you are passing by, like we did.

Monument
Jun 2019 • Friends
Large statue on a roundabout next to the river set in nice, well-kept gardens. As always in Vietnam, crossing the road is a bit of a daunting prospect, especially as it’s a roundabout and traffic is coming from all different directions at you.

Once you’re safely across, you’re greeted with a well-kept green space and the Tran Hung Dao Statue set at the edge of a pond with a fountain. Although the fountain wasn’t on during my visit.

The area itself is nice and only a short walk across the road to the Harbour Garden which is the footpath next to the river.

Legendary 13th century military leader
Dec 2018 • Couples
During our visits to new destinations we have become lovers of all things statues/sculptures/monuments as they can tell you so much about the place and its history. This proud monument is dedicated to a great leader who is famous for repelling mongol invasions during the rein of Kublai Khan, in our books that is pretty impressive. Probably not regarded as a stand alone attraction, however, worth incorporating a visit during a walk.

General Tran Hung Dao, 13th-century warrior
Nov 2018 • Friends
Nice monument dedicated to a famous Vietnamese 13th-century military leader. He lived from 1228 to 1300 and was also known as Grand Prince Hưng Đạo. The monument can be a challenge getting to it, as this is surrounded by one of the busiest turnabouts in the city.

Large statue on a round about. Don't put it on your must see list
Sep 2018 • Friends
It's just a statue that you can see while crossing this area in a car/bike or while enjoying breeze and Saigon river. The river front was so beautiful that i almost missed seeing the statue.

Dont break a sweat to see it!

If you happen to find yourself at this intersection then it wont be hard to spot this venerable statue. How on earth you actually navigate the multiple traffic choked streets to get close up to it is beyond me, I was not brave enough!

Nothing spectacular
Jan 2018 • Couples
This location is not worth a special visit but if you are in the vicinity check it out. The area it is located on is sadly not well kept, seems to have been neglected and not like it was during my visit to HCMC in 2014 when the pool was filled and a water fountain which lit up at night was working. It is however a significant bronze statue overlooking the park near the Saigon River amongst tall modern buildings. Sadly another monument in a park that is not well cared for.

Large statue at a traffic roundabout
Dec 2017 • Solo
Nothing too much to get excited about with this large statue located near the Renaissance Hotel and the river amongst a sea of traffic. A quick visit will be sufficient for most people.

Not impressive

I do not understand what this statue is all about. the abnormal road traffic prevents anyway, that one can look at this "place of interest" in peace. The time you can confidently save. Do not go there.
