Day 5: Return to India – Finally the journey comes to an end. The most impressive city I have ever visited.

ANA offers an overnight flight from SGN to Tokyo Narita Airport (NRT), Japan, for connections to USA the next morning/afternoon. As with the last trip on this flight, I chose the shrimp porridge japanese breakfast set. Very delicious, ANA food never disappoints! *TRAVEL TIP: I stayed up during the whole of this flight to get myself jetlagged to USA time, so that I'd be tired enough for the next overnight (but very short night) flight and wake up as I arrive in USA the next morning* NRT is a fantastic airport to be in, modern facilities, ANA's star alliance lounge is very very very good!
