Under their guidance and in just six hours, we explored street foods, visited a night market, had drinks at the top of the tallest building with the best city views, drank in the flavours and local lifestyle, had dessert before dinner, drank sweet caphe sua da and met some of the vendors selling goods late into the night. Here are some atmosphere filled pics of this happy time shared.
Sweet Sticky Rice (Xoi Dua) in various fruity flavors, which we bought and ate in the park, emerging ninjas practicing their katas for company. Below coconut water served straight out of the shell, chilled and delicious, which became a staple drink whilst there.
We headed into the vibrant Backpackers District after dinner, a must see and linger to experience more of the pulsing heart of Saigon. Side street cafes and bars, food carts, scooters and street facing tables. Not to mention the ability to sleep on your bike. And wires, lots and lots of live wires.
The area attracts a crowd, it pulsates with an intoxicating energy that you want to be a part of.
Vendors selling postcards, fans, trinkets late into the night as they try to make a living. Many accompanied by gloriously irresistible children. I came home with more than my fair quota of fans.
Specially selected Vegetarian Restaurant HUM. Amazing treat!
Ishay made some Vines which I share here. Pudding in the park with the ninjas. At HUM. And glowing in the heat of the Backpacker’s District. Thank you my special friends for an incredible night on the town. Can’t think of anybody better to have shared it with x.
