Where in SEA?

El Filibusterismo

The answer to last week's Where in SEA?

Mỹ Sơn was an imperial city during the Cham kingdom, between the 4th and 12th century.  It was the religious and political capital of the Champa Kingdom for most of its existence. The site is located in the mountainous border Duy Xuyen District of Quang Nam Province, in central Viet Nam. Today, it is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

This week’s Where in SEA?

I am in a port city which was the real life site of the first Filipino revolt against Spanish colonial rule and which also featured prominently in a plot twist in José Rizal’s novel, El Filibusterismo. Where in Southeast Asia am I?
