That disease is one of four incurable diseases, is a disease can spread so the patient must be isolated from the outside world to wait … the death. Loving her, Hoa arranged her a private room in his luxurious villa, be cared for separately, but not any stranger absolutely knows about this.

Soon after, his daughter died. She was buried in that private room. But one day the body was gone, the family did not find out. From that night rumors that a girl with white hair wandering in the garden, the sound echoes the neighborhood in the middle of the night …

Abandoned Ruins

This magnificent castle is now just a place for the sea breeze to enter. No one can enter because the roads are closed.

Stepping inside, there are still columns of Roman-style architecture, but the walls are broken in places that are temporarily filled with cement. The upper floors, the window without glass overlooking the Long Hai sea. In recollection, in the past, it must have been very poetic, but now it is only lonely.

At one foot of the stairs a red paint – unintentionally or deliberately – evokes the horror of a ghost house. Stepping onto the terrace, a corner of the courtyard, plastered skilfully, made the scene more desolate. In particular, the interior of the castle is no longer stored.

For almost half a century, the castle is now a mansion with mysterious rumors. No one can prove the source, but the rumor has taken this classic bold classical architecture into the wilderness. Nowadays, this villa becomes the best destination in Vietnam for visitors who would like the horror stories.
