UPDATE August 2014: Due to construction works there is an alternative question at stage 2!
This is a short multi in the center òf tơwn. Enjoy!
We will start our little walk at a famous market …
Bến Thành Market is a large marketplace in the downtown area in District 1. The market is one of the earliest surviving structures in Saigon, popular with tourists seeking local handicrafts, textiles and souvenirs, as well as local cuisine. The market developed from informal markets created by early 17th century street vendors gathering together near the Saigon River. The market was formally established by the French colonial powers after taking over the Gia Định citadel in 1859.
We start our stroll at one òf the gates to the market.
Stage 1: N 10 46.326 E 106 41.904
How many cows (big and small) can you discover above the entrance(s) in front of you? Some cacher had minor problems here: If you are unsure whether one small animal is a cow, assume that it is ;-)
A = Number òf cows
Then please walk to the Opera building – just follow Le Loi street. N 10 46.585 E 106 42.155
I think the surrounding buildings and exclusive shops are mỏre interesting, though ;-)
Stage 2: You will find the next stage at N 10 46.(A+2)61 E 106 42.09A
The big sugar-style building in front òf you ís the old French townhall. Today it ís the People’s Council and People’s Committee. ----- UPDATE August 2014: Due to construction works, you may not able to get close enough to the statue ... Alternative question: When was the Hotel de Ville built ? ( Cross sum of the year the building was completed minus 2 = "new" G) ------ Original question: Please note the year that is written on the statue. Cross sum = G.
Do you recognize the guy with the child? You should
Do you also know the history òf the Rex Hotel next door?
To find the final, you have to walk in the direction òf the Saigon River.
Final: N 10 46.(A-1)(G/2)9 E 106 42.A7(G-14)
Remember that Green Monsters like big, old trees! Please place the cointainer at the exact position and hide it with a few leaves.
Please refrain from placing a geocoin or TB. The muggle risk is far too big.
