During his visit, he and his delegation listened to the introduction of the history and development periods of Van Mieu-Quoc Tu Giam-the most outstanding Landmark in Hanoi and the country as well. He showed a deep admiration for Vietnamese traditional fondness for learning; the way to recruit talented students and the tradition of respect for the talented. Particularly, he spent most of his time viewing the Doctor Steles which are stone masterpieces which illustrate highly developed periods of Confucian education in Vietnam during monarchical time.
