Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam (Part I)

My family and I spent our 2013 Christmas in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam. You could easily see the influence of the French by the small details, food (especially the bread), and Architecture. They also have the best coconut juice I’ve ever tasted!

We got lost on our first day, but that is not a bad thing. Getting lost could sometimes lead you to interesting detours. Vietnam3 Vietnam4 Vietnam5 Vietnam6 Vietnam7 Vietnam8 Vietnam9 Vietnam10

One thing I forgot to do when we went to Central Post Office: send myself an amazing postcard. I guess I got distracted by the architecture and goods. I felt like I was in a different time.

The very reason why I wanted to visit Vietnam: Vermicelli noodle bowl. It didn’t disappoint me!

We ended our day by trying Vietnamese Massage. No photos, of course, but it was the best massage of my life! At first I thought it was torture because the lady danced on my back (I had a hard time breathing), but relief came after that. It was an amazing first day.

    1. Hi michelle! Unfortunately, we cannot remember where we got our massage, but I’m pretty sure it’s 2-3 streets away from Spring Hotel. I use Canon 6D. Thank you for your kind words 🙂
