    Ho Chi Minh

    April 2, 2017 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    With one country down, today was the day I headed to my next destination, Vietnam. Having heard so many good things about this beautiful country, I was excited to be moving on, despite the sad departure from Cambodia.

    After patchy sleep and being exhausted I made it to my 8.30am bus to Ho Chi Minh. I was sat to a very nice Cambodian, who attempted to make conversation with a very tired me. I felt awful that I couldn't be more of a joy to sit next to but I think my previous week had taken its toll.

    Having slept most the journey and experienced my first border crossing of my trip, I arrived in Ho Chi Minh at 4pm and wow it's a hectic city. First time crossing the road took at least 5 minutes and I'm hoping I make it out the city alive. However, I made it to my Hostel and checked in for the night. Having money to sort out, I made that a priority before I could enjoy myself and snoop around the shops.

    My hostel being located in the centre of town was perfect, being near various shops and the main market. My dinner was street food, adding up to a huge total of $1 as well as treating myself to ice cream which was freshly made (also $1). Eating for this little money has already made me fond of Vietnam.

    However, the market certainly sells questionable food, I saw crocodile being cooked in front of my eyes,
    something I haven't braved to try yet.

    After a very long day and being extremely tired, tonight is a rest night and the rooftop above my hotel is the ideal spot for this. Despite not having met anyone yet, it's quite nice to observe the city from my point of view and really take in the sights I'm seeing.

    Mekong Delta

    November 22, 2019 in Vietnam ⋅ ☀️ 26 °C

    So we have had breakfast and now have 6 new people join the group, now on the bus on the way to the river to get on a boat and try a lot of fruit from the tropical fruit garden

    So we saw how the different tropical fruits were grown, and then had a taste. After this we went to the bee farm, checked out the bees, tasted some honey from the hive followed by some honey tea.

    We then got back on the boat to go to the coconut farm/factory and saw how the coconut was farmed and opened and stripped.

    Also watched the woman making the candy (very nimble fingers).

    We then went on to taste the coconut wine, banana wine and rice wine which just happened to have cobras and scorpions in the bottle's
