I noticed that we have a free day at the end of our trip at Vietnam, so I have some plans for this day.
Central Post Office: The post office was built during 1886- 1891, based on the design of Gustave Eiffel- a well-known French architect together with his assistant Foulhoux. I really want to see the building and maybe use it. I’m an old-feshion person, so I wold like to send some post cards to my friends and family.
Notre Dame Cathedral: While the market stands at a modern and crowded corner of the business district, the ancient cathedral is located in a very peaceful picturesque corner in the downtown of Ho Chi Minh City. It is right across the post office. I think why wouldn’t I go to see this when I’m already there. Ha!
Pham Ngu Lao Street: This area is a little bit westernized with travelers and foreigners. However, there are a lot of local street food. I don’t know if they are typical Vietnamese street food, but I do want to try some because I’m a foodie.
I might change the places that I want to go to accommodate my traveling buddies’ plan. It will be much more fun to go to places with someone, and I want to be safe when I’m in another country. Last time I traveled alone in Philippine, I got drugged and lost my money. I feel so lucky that I wasn’t hurt and I got back to the hotel safe. Even though that brought my bad and scary moments, I’m still not afraid of traveling or adventure. I just need to be more careful.
