After the puppet show, we had our dinner at Nha Hang Ngon, said to be the number 1 authentic Vietnamese restaurant in Ho Chi Minh. We paid a total of about VND320000 or Php625. Wow!
Before we went back to our hotel, we did a quick shopping at the Ben Thanh Market where I bought several bags -- Krumpler camera bag, Kipling bag, Vietnam souvenir bags and kapis-shell shoulder bag. I less cared whether the Krumpler and Kipling is original or otherwise, I was simply happy with my loots for the day.
I thought we will call the day off early but of course, we can't afford to miss the nightlife and the Saigon beer. Since establishments are pretty small, the alleys at night serves as an extension of the club. Foreigners and locals alike party all night as a way to end the day.
