VIETNAM - HALF FRENCH, HALF CHINESE
Vietnam was a very short trip. Took a few pictures with my fancy new phone generation 2012!
MY MAGIC MOMENT
New Year's eve on Halong Bay
Ho Chi Min, i.e. Saigon, is very French. Plenty of restaurants, cafes, boutiques and the Mekong floating market interesting. Not as beautiful as the one in Thailand. If I were to go to that area again I would go overnight on a boat in the Mekong Delta to see first hand the early morning floating market. I believe it’s the real thing.
Halong Bay is far from the city of Hanoi. Apparently spending a night on one of the laguna’s island can turn into a nightmare as motorcyclists race at night, all night! Quieter on the boat.
