Final day in HCMC. While the ladies went for breakfast in the hotel cafe, I slept a bit longer. Holiday time always passes so quickly.
One last place to visit before we go home. War Remnants Museum. It primarily contains exhibits relating to the American phase of the Vietnam War.
It’s pretty cool to see some of these war machines.
Actually when we first arrived in Vietnam, my thoughts were all about the Vietnam War, probably from the books and documentaries I have read and watched. The country felt like a nation that is still recovering from that ill period in history. And the visit to this museum opened more knowledge of the type of sufferings the people went through, both Americans and Vietnamese.
This is a cage used to lock the prisoners, even Joey will feel cramped up in it, let alone an adult.
Some other equipment of destruction.
Last walk along the streets of HCMC before we fly home.
This entire street has shops selling all kinds of trophies and plaques.
Found a yogurt shop, Kless insisted we have to give it a try. No regrets.
It’s DIY yogurt, you are charged according to how much you take.
We had a cool time..
In case you have not realised, motorcycles are the favoured vehicle in Vietnam. Hearsay, there is about 12 million bikes…
The last time I saw a road side barber was in Malaysia, this is so nostalgic!
Saw some very old buildings too. It just brought out the uniqueness of HCMC.
Of course the people are unique too. Love their smiles and easy-going nature.
Me: We are going home, are you ready to go Joey?
Joey: Can we stay for 7 days?
I think she doesn’t understand we have nothing else to do liao..but the idea of going home to see Nai Nai and Jayne brought a smile to Joey’s face again.
Bye Bye Ho Chi Minh City
