Where in the World (230)

As a point of reference I have included a photograph of the Merlion, Singapore as so many people used the statue of the mythical creature in last week’s “Where in the World…” distorted photograph to identify the city.

The creature was the biggest clue to the identity of the city while at the same time the largest red herring (another mythical creature). Both spout water from their mouths and both creatures are depicted in an upright position. Comparing the two it is easy to see that the Merlion, an iconic Singapore landmark, has the head of a lion while the creature in the distorted photograph (below) has the head of a dragon.

So, if not Singapore what is the identity of the distorted city? The dragon statue spouts water in the city of Da Nang, Vietnam.

Two people only managed to identify the city as Da Nang. Congratulations to Jackie (@JackiesJourneys) and Tim (@timofnewbury).

This week the distorted photograph is not a skyline and there are no confusing mythical creatures spouting water to confuse you. Identify the building and you will be able to identify the city. Good Luck
