Day 2 in Vietnam
Vung Tau Travel Blog› entry 2 of 3 › view all entries
The next day, we got up early and started our trip to Vung Tau. In the bus, we change the money with the guide, Mr. Wen. 100RMB=220000VED, we first got 660000VED, so rich!!!
On the way, we stopped and steped into a shop, we didn’t buy anything except the coconuts, for drinking. We paid VED10000 for one (which means about 5RMB).
When we arrived at Vung Tau, it was a nice 4 star hotel, which makes us feeling quite comfortable! Free drink is the peach juice, very nice!
A Vietnam lady came to give us some business cards of the hotel casino, then we found out, Vietnam lady is really slim and with nice waist! The men from our group were so happy, and took photos for her like she is a famous movie star! :-D
After check-in, the first destination for us is Villa Blanche, I started to feel the Chinese empire is much more rich, as the Vietnam king’s palace is very simple to be honest! But the view and wind there is wonderful!
2nd destination is Statue of Jesus in Vung Tau.
Here, just highlight the Vietnam lady, their outdoor dress is very special, it seems, they don’t want to get dark, so they always try to cover themselves as much as possible!
3rd destination is the Whale’s Temple.
The last destination is the Vung Tau beach, was very windy that day, we actually didn’t use the swimming dress at all, just enjoy the wind from there and taken some photos!
But instead of staying in the beach, we prefer a place where we could enjoy a coup of coffee, not let the wind blow us away, so we go into a cafe. Here, we first time taste the Vietnam coffee. Typically the coffee is prepared in single servings in single-cup filter/brewers. Generally the coffee is served tableside while it is still brewing.
Lauri said Vietnamese coffee is the best coffee he ever had, I guess should be good, but just we don’t know how to appreciate coffee too much, so not so much feeling about that.
In the evening, after dinner…
The casino actually is very nice for us, because May won USD90 from it, without paying anything, which gave us wonderful night, because we were that happy and exciting!! :-) Then we looked for a bar to drink something and celebrate the good luck!
