Diyarbakır Fortress and Hevsel Gardens.
In the city of Diyarbakır in southeastern Turkey, ancient and modern are interwoven. Sitting on the banks of the Upper Tigris River, today’s Diyarbakır surrounds the sprawling site of the old city and fortress, with its preserved walls and watchtowers, ruins, and elevated views out over the river basin. The Hevsel Gardens form a green corridor that connects the city to the Tigris and once provided food and water for those living within the walls. Diyarbakır’s strategic location between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers places it in the Fertile Crescent, a region that’s regarded by historians as “the cradle of civilization.” This is one of the country’s newest World Heritage Sites — get there quick and beat the crowds!
Not a bad commute, when the views are like this! 🛵 Motorcyclists make their way across Hanoi’s Long Bien bridge, passing banana trees and farmland below. @phtrung0611 captured this unique shot of the bridge from above, giving us a new perspective on this urban landmark!
We love seeing your drone shots! Make sure to tag @vietnamtourismboard or #vietnamcharm for a chance to be featured!
St. Joseph’s Cathedral in Hanoi peeking out to say hello from behind the trees 👋 “Such a beautiful building!” is how @twomaldiviantravellers described the cathedral. We have to agree! ⠀
