Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam 22Mar14

It has been Phu My port whenever we visited 
Ho Chi Minh city by cruise ship 
where takes about 2 hours by bus.
But, Seabourn Sojourn is small enough to cruise
all the way to the city centre and dock on bank of Saigon river.
That gives us extra convenience and time saving.
We could walk to the city hall and Ben Thanh market.


 Ben Thanh market is always fun

 Pho2000 is the restaurant just outside of the market 
where Bill Clinton had lunch once.
We had beautiful spring roll and Pho soup.

 Exotic tropical fruits displayed on the market

 Coffee made from Civet dropping is here, too. 
Smells divine but next time maybe.

 complimentary shuttle bus took us to the city centre 

Seabourn Special Event

 They made dance drama out of Daily lives of rural Vietnamese 
 Welcome and performance at the Opera House for 
Seabourn passengers only was extra special!
 How special is that!
 girls with Seabourn banner welcome us with smile

 And, wine and champagne along with canapé before the performance

 Beautiful Opera House Ho Chi Minh city

 on Saigon river
What a day!
Sure, we shall be back...
