It was our last hurrah in Vietnam so we want to make it count hehe…. We strolled around the city. We went inside Ben Thanh Market. We ‘happily’ got lost there. They were so many cool and nice things we found there. I fell in love with this backpack trolley but I decided it was too expensive (for my budget, hehe). But my mama was too sweet. She went back there in the afternoon and bought it for me without me knowing it, hehe… Thanks Ma! Mwah!
Once we finally go out of the market, we went to Bach Dang ice cream shop. We played a game of “who-will-order-the-yummiest-ice-cream?”.
|I picked a Coffee Ice cream|
|Papa picked the Bach Dang Special, Bro picked the Banana Split and Mom picked the Coconut Ice cream|
|Sis picked this heart-shaped ice cream|
And the winner of this little game is……. Mama!
It is located in Vo Van Tan, District 3. Admission fee cost 15.000 VND. They have miltary equipments like big helicopter, patton tanks and bomber in thier yard. The museum contain exhibits of the American phase of the Vietnam war. The first floor of the museum were just walls and posters explaning the Vietnam war but when we got into the 2nd floor, it got interesting. There were photos of how the war went how the Vietnamese suffered under the hands of Americans. It will break your heart to see it and read their stories. I was looking around if they were Americans there but it seems like most of the foriegners visiting there speak a non-English language. I would even see this elderly foreigner lady crying while seeing those photos. I couldn’t resist taking a picture of this one……
In the evening, we went to the night market outside Ben Thanh Market. To be honest, we go there before heading back to the hotel because it’s just few blocks away from the hotel. We find very cheap and cool goodies there… We could just go crazy shopping, hehe….
Here are some pasalubong that I brought home:
|This cig is for souvenir only.. Not promoting smoking, k..|
|I am officially a fan of Vietnamese coffee…. Love!|
Vietnam has been a relaxing, fun, educational and a lovely trip for the family…. Maybe I’ll visit you again next time, Vietnam but I guess I’ll be going to the North…. to Hanoi! Hmmmmm……….
