This was in fact taken in Vietnam, although that’s Chinese writing.  There’s a fairly large Chinese population in the country, mostly concentrated in the south around Saigon (Ho-Chih-Minh City).  This was inside a really cool ornate temple that unfortunately was mostly too dark to photograph well.  I’m not sure what the characters here mean, but it was inside a pot of incense that was being burned for good luck and safe travel, I believe.
