Planning a trip during 2011 new year with Laila wasn't easy to find a place we like with budget. We just wanted somewhere nice to relax. We thought about the beach in Thailand but for limited time that Laila can't take leave ( we had 4 days holiday but I wanted one week on the beach as 4 days are not enough) ... So our choices was 'fly to any place that's near Thailand or in Thailand).
But... maybe we concerned about time and money too much so our trip turned to be 'Vietnam' in almost a last minute when we found a flight to Hochimihn was only 3,000baht. (cheaper than go to Phuket, Chiangmai, Surat Thani at that time) After decided, Aoz, our old friend, asked us to join. No problem.
We were busy at work before a long holiday so we didn't have much time to learn about Hochimihn city. Some friends told us later that there's nothing to see much in Hochimihn, it's the city. On websites people share about Dalat, it's a Switzerland in Asia. we thought about that them booked another domestic flight from Hochimihn to Dalat with hope that this would be an awesome trip! Traveled on the hill!!!
Plan: Land in Hochimihn then take a plane to Dalat in the evening. Stay in Dalat Two days then back to Hochimihn to fly back home.
We hoped to had a good plan but .... sometimes a good plan couldn't help if we aren't in a right place.
