My kid asked vietnamese friend about what is his favourite place of interest in Vietnam and he said "chin-tu". Forgot to ask what is it :) Now googling and can't find anything like this! Found that "chin" may be mean "nine" I found "Nine Holy Cannons", but the name of this object looks different in vietnamese.

Any ideas what it could be?


Friend said, it was A HOLIDAY.

Can you hint what holiday it can be?

  • Welcome to TSE. What other information besides the name do you have? We don't know if it's an artifact, a building, a beach, a garden, a neighborhood, a type of business, etc. so guessing correctly at something that might be someone's favorite something does not seem answerable in our Q&A format.

  • You said object. What are you referring to? Are you looking for a place, a site, a monument? What type of thing is it?

    @choster I don't ask someone's favourite something, I am asking is there something well known and popular with this name, something like Tour Eiffel in Paris.

    No idea then. I did go through the entire length of Vietnam this year, visiting nearly at points of interest in National Geographics and Fodor's books and that does not sound like anything I remember.

    Seems like you need to get your child to find out more, rather than asking a hopelessly vague question here. Nov 15 '17 at 11:45

Cần Thơ almost same "chin-tu" phonetically.

none are bigger, or more popular than the Can Tho’s Cai Rang Floating Market.

Tuần Châu island

Covered by pine forests, Tuần Châu island has an area of 2.2 km² and to the east and south are two man-made beaches endowed with very white, fine sand. Nowadays, Tuần Châu Island is one of the most touristic destinations in Hạ Long.

I hope it is correct ;)

  • What about HOLIDAY? Is there any holiday of festival in Vietnam with this name?

  • Cần Thơ definitely isn't any close to chin-tu
