Exploring Ho Chi Minh


This post is basically a post for me to dump pictures.


Remember when I mentioned that motorcycle is the main transportation? Yep, no kidding.


I followed a one-day tour to somewhere out of the town~



One of the interesting things I saw:


Close up!


I wonder if they're real.


I mean, how do you squeeze the animals into the bottle??



Look up Mekong River! So proud to be cruising this river XD;;



And then, back to Ho Chi Minh. 
By the way, Saigon is the former name of the capital.


If you remember the Central Post Office I mentioned, next to it is the Mc Donald's. And the alley next to it, is the book street.


The alley is so beautiful. Books are everywhere.


Of course, cafes too, for people who want to relax. 



I also ate the infamous Vietnamese spring roll~



There is one more place you have to see for yourself. The picture below is the 'square' in front of this place I'm talking about.


The Apartment's Cafe.


Everything you see is cafe. Except the ground floor. That's a bookstore.


And this was captured at one of the cafes I dined in~ Watched the sunset before my eyes. Phenomenal.

Xin Chào~


Oh, dear! I've neglected this blog (again)!
So, in the previous school break (Merdeka holiday), I flew to Vietnam~ I was in Ho Chi Minh city. Well, since it's the capital of Vietnam, it is a very hectic city. Motorcycle is basically the main transportation there, you can possibly imagine motorcycles coming from all directions.

Onto the pictures!


The Notre Dame Basilica of Saigon!
It's so pretty even from the side! I wish I could enter the church to capture the beautiful stained glass windows, but no admittance allowed. :( Bummer!



Next to the church is the iconic Cental Post Office.
I couldn't get a nice picture from outside, so the interior is what I could capture nicely lol. It's a very old building and it is still operating. There were souvenirs sold inside I managed to send several postcards back to friends in Malaysia. The only thing I dislike here is the unfriendly staff.



I came across this on the last night of the trip. This is the Town Council, if I'm not mistaken.


I shall upload more pictures soon~

Japanese Toilets


I must admit that the Japanese toilets is one thing I love about Japan. Perhaps you will only understand this if you have been and stayed in Japan.

Nanzoin Temple


This is where the world's largest reclining Buddha statue is at. One of the reason I like this temple is, it is located on a hill.




Once you've reached the square, look at the greenery behind you.
There are charm stalls too.



You can choose whether to walk through a tunnel, up the hill or walk further up to see the statue.




I went further up to see the statue.



There are more things to see up there, such as this zen little garden.



As I headed down again, I chose to walk the hills.



This path led me to a small garden with some small shrines. It was mesmerizing~



When I got to the square, I walked through the tunnel. At the middle of it, there's this thing.



At the end of the tunnel, walk straight for another amazing experience.



Cute statue~



I noticed that there are many mini statues like these. If I'm not wrong, donors who donated a certain amount of money will have their name carved on the statue.



Words cannot express enough what it was like to be at Nanzoin temple. Therefore, I recorded some footage and created a video.



There is a parking space at the foothill with limited slots. If there is no more parking space, you may park your vehicle at the parking lot of the nearby restaurants.

Exploring IIzuka


One day, I had decided to wander again! I went downtown by foot and came across interesting stuff!




I wonder about these little statues and offerings. They're placed by the roadside.



I don't think I have seen such flower back home.



Adventures usually bring us to a new world. 
or place.

Well, I came across a shrine~
Here's a sneak peek~



I noticed that roses are everywhere in Japan.


Some anime-esque scene.



Here's a video of my adventure~



For more information, 
please check the video out~
