Ho Chi Minh City - Day 3 (enhanced version)
On the last day, I did my shopping to buy some souvenirs and stuff for my kids and friends back home. I went to An Dong and Ben Tanh market. The markets are more or less similar to the markets in Indonesia and China. Aktiviti hari ni memang dinanti2kan oleh cik akak2 dan cik adik2 kita ni sumer...for me, yg bukan kaki belik brg ni, just went there to see the place, bought whatever i wanted and ran away to other places.. Bahaya tempat2 cengini... Boleh menipiskn purseee....:) Tp telekung kat sini memang berkualiti dan murah. So, if u ever come to HCM, p lah belik telekung... my friend went to a shop selling telekung, tp x pasti plak di mana...
Mcm2 lah jual kat sini..Kain, leather goods, antiques..lebih kurang mcm Ben Tanh juga... Lepas An Dong, kami p Ben Tanh pula...
After checking out of the hotel , just to kill our time, we went to snap some photos at the ever famous post office and the cathedral. My husband also sent a postcard to my son back in Malaysia.
It was time to go home. I was a bit sad as I did not have the chance to try the Mekong Trip. "Well, I can always come back in the future." All in all, I could say that my trip to HCM City was a memorable one. It allowed me to get to know our neighbouring country and its diverse history and culture. It also taught me to be thankful to God and be grateful of what we have. In addition, I get to know my friends better. There's so much to share and they are good people who share the same passion as me, 'TRAVELLING'. I guess, we should give the credit to Air Asia too as it helps us to reach farther destination in the grasp of our hands.
