Ho Chi Minh Back-alleys day 2 and 3

A travel blog entry by cariannepotter


Our second day in Vietnam went by fast! Doug and I walked to markets and did some shopping and bargaining. We decided swimming on the rooftop hotels and having beers up there was what we liked most. We had lunch at Temple Club which was definitely more up scale and we were very underdressed ! We walked around some more and went to Ben Trah market which was set for tourists but nice for us because they had tall people clothes. XXXL tank ...

Towards the Mekong

Headed off to Ben Tre by bus, a town in the Mekong delta. There was another Aussie couple on the ...

It was interesting to see in the rice fields we passed grave stones scattered throughout the landscape.The Vietnamese clean the remains ...

Floating Pineapple Boats

A travel blog entry by jennystolborg


... fried yum! After 2 jam packed days, it was back on the bus for the journey back to HCMC. We have had a glimpse of the Vietnamese Mekong delta and I found it really quite mesmerizing and think it's brilliant that people are so resilient to just adapt to whatever circumstances they find themselves in and make the best of what they have; changing tides? Build a house on stilts, no meat to eat? Let's see what rats taste like, can't get to a market? Let's have a floating market. Just brilliant ...
