Ahhh - another gorgeous morning waking up to the sounds of nature. This place is simply magical and beautiful. It would be perfect if not for the bugs. sigh.
For breakfast I had yummy banana pancakes and A had black rice pudding (very sweet and desserty).
V wanted to check out a high-end jewelry wholesaler called John Hardy. It was appt only and she had been going through all sorts of hoops and hurdles to secure an appointment. It was allegedly quite far so I opted to go with her with no intention to buy anything (famous last words...). The hotel driver was supposed to take us to a taxi since the place was out of their normal range but he was kind and offered to take us if we covered his gas money.
Afterwards our driver took us to Cafe Lotus - a beautiful cafe overlooking a lotus pond. Probably more for tourists - I thought my seafood fried rice was just so-so; but V enjoyed her nasi goreng a lot.
J, C, V and A returned from the spa - based on their lukewarm responses I suspect the treatments were mediocre at best. We packed up, stopped by a McDonald's (J has to visit one everywhere he travels) and then headed to the airport to return to Singapore. So sad to be leaving this beautiful place.
Tomorrow - Ho Chi Minh City!
