Ho Chi Minh City - Saigon River Dinner Cruise

After walking for so long, we looked forward to our dinner on the ship.

We had suckling pig as part of the dinner. The dinner is nothing fantastic but really enjoyed the performance on the ship.



The girl dancing with rings of fire was so brave and good. Fantastic.

Ho Chi Minh City - City Tour

We went on a city tour and admired all these beautiful old historical buildings.

This the Notre Dame Cathedral in HCM City. It was constructed in the 1800s. There were two bell towers and a statue of Mary. You can get more information about the cathedral from wikipedia.



Just next to the cathedral is the Old Saigon Post Office. In the post office, you can send postcards back home and also change some local currencies. The exchange rate is quite good in here.

Vietnam - Ho Chi Minh City - Water Puppet

At last, I am back from Ho Chi Minh City. The weather there was terrible. It was so hot at 37 degrees and really make me sick and tired. Having a very bad sore throat now.

If not for the hot weather, I think I would enjoy more. Most of the time, I cant focus taking good photos because of the heat...lol.

We went to a Vietnamese water puppet show. I enjoy the water puppet the best.

Oh I love this shot of the beautiful vietnamnese girl.

I wondered how they made the puppet move all over the place. Althought I dont understand what they are singing about, I do enjoyed watching the show.

The finale, where the performers came out from behind the curtains.
