This post has been edited. Originally I wrote:

"The Cham in Vietnam number but a few 100,000, and are not named amongst Vietnam's 54 recognised indigenous groups"

Hồ Thuỷ Tiên ABANDONED WATER PARK
Because the abandoned waterpark is so cryptic, backpackers pass directions around on scrunched-up napkins, drop pins on Google Maps and show each other photos to get to the right place.  When looking for an abandoned water park, I can tell you those dropped...

NO PICTURES
Kim Long is a black slither running
parallel to the Perfume River, stretching from White Tiger Bridge to Thiên Mụ

waned, so that the cluster of lanterns outside a non-descript b...
