Indochinese Buddhism in Vietnamese Travel Writings During The Early Half of The Twentieth Century

Abstract

            Through studying Vietnamese travel writings in the early half of the twentieth century, this article provides an overview of Buddhism in Indochinese countries located on the lower Mekong Delta. Travel writings by Vietnamese authors provide vivid description of nature and living in Cambodia, Laos, and Vietnam where they visited. The texts also present the authors’ personal thinking and feeling about the places and their trips. This article examines Indochinese Buddhism during the early twentieth century in three parts: traces of traditional Buddhism, sceneries of pagodas, and comments by authors.
