One week before Hari Raya, Wendy suggested on going on a trip somewhere to kill the free time on the Raya week. So, I went and searched around for cheap tickets on places around. Too bad, in the end of planning, Wendy needed to stay put at home to take care of her parents. I’m sure we can go on trip again in the near future when her father gets better!
Anyhow, I went on with my parents in the end. It was a 5 days 4 nights trip to the world second largest rice exporter country. The country with over 3 thousands kilometers of coastline. Insane.
We traveled using MAS’s as it offers hassle-free transit and it’s actually slightly cheaper than Air Asia. Furthermore, we don’t need to pay a single cent for the meal served on board.
Flying for 3 hours plus without (FREE) food and drinks can be starving and thirsty.
We had our fist lunch at quan an ngon in the Old Quarters after arrival. It’s a well known place among the locals and tourists. Many have recommended this place so we gave it a try.
What you see on the left is what Vietnamese love to eat. Often, they like to wrap their food around like this. It’s something similar to Japanese’s temaki.
Well, I must say that we are not really “into” the local foods over there. Nevertheless, it is a very good experience!
Just enjoy the photos I took during the trip and I’ll tell you more in the next post.
Staying alive is a key to another great trip, you will know why in the next post.
Till then, take care.
