The altar that worshipped the Spirit of the land (Thổ Địa) is a must for
Vietnamese business places as people believe the spirit can influence the
prosperity of their land and their business. Likewise, in the case of this resort which was built on the land that once was a massive rainforest, I wonder if the spirits of those trees who had fallen down to give space for the resort are still here? And should those tree spirits be worshipped by people who benefit from the resort?
