Where I stayed
Back from the Mekong River Delta area for a 2 day trip. Saw a floating market that was really a locals market done from boats with NOT A THING that a tourist would consider buying as a souvenier! Shocking.
We cruised some canals and areas between islands and felt a little like being on the Disneyland Jungle Cruise...but in a good way...a narrow canal surrounded by jungle with interesting stuff to look at (but don't worry, no rhinos get shot in the end and no guide doing corny puns).
Did I mention it's hot and humid? Sheesh, it's really humid!
Anyway, ate in a spectacular restaurant here in HCMC...Xu. If you're ever in the neighborhood, look it up. If it were in NYC it would cost twice as much and you wouldn't be able to get in.
MOre later...Joe has to work...on the otherhand, it's billable hours and it'll pay for a few days of vacation!
