Sepatutnya kami ber4 dengan En Zul, Kak Sabarina & Kak Aishah tapi disebabkan Kak Sabarina x sihat “demam campak” so kami pergi bertiga.. Kami menaiki flight Airasia bertolak pada pukul 09.15pagi.. I terpaksa bangun awal dan bertolak dari rumah pada pukul 06.00pagi then menggunakan ERL ke Salak Tinggi seterusnya shuttle bus ke LCCT.. perjalanan mengambil masa 50minit sahaja dan lebih cepat & pantas jika anda menaiki bus dari KL Sentral.



Arrived at Saigon Airport 10.15am waktu Saigon.. beza masa antara Malaysia dengan Vietnam ialah 1 hour,. kami disambut oleh tour Guide iaitu Mr Alex @ Harun. Mak Aik.!

Day 2, after breakfast at hotel, heading out of town, we travel by road to MYTHO a capital of Tien Giang Province, is an island port in the Mekong River Delta which is 2hours drive from Saigon city…fuhhh..!! tidow dalam van sepanjang perjalanan….haha…





embark on a cruise navigating along Tien River, wander through Thoi San Island, stop by to visit local coconut candy workshop, take a boat to orchard at Qui Islet and taste five seasonal fruits, listen to Don Ca Tai Tu Nam Bo one of Vietnamese folk music.

After that we transfer back to Ho Chi Minh City. Lunch at Saigon Seri Penang Restaurant. That day, kami sempat shooting for channel Vietnam Tv..wow.! daa cam artis..kebetulan masa tu, crew TV Vietnam buat shooting pasal Restaurant Seri Penang. . afternoon, continue tour visit Duong Ba Trac Muslim Village, then kami juga berkesempatan untuk mengunjungi kawasan kawasan tumpuan orang ramai untuk membeli belah seperti Russian Market, Saigon Square Center, An Dong Plaza, Ben Than Market dan Vincom Centre.




Walaupun Cuma melawat sekejap sahaja tapi kepuasan dapat kami rasa sebab dapat melihat dan menjelajah Bandar Ho Chi Minh. After finish semua tours, kami balik ke hotel untuk mandi dan berehat. Pukul 06.30ptg kami Dinner di Restaurant Four Season.  Pada malam tu jugak, I hangout dengan kawan kawan Alex (Tour Guide) dan dieyowg bawak I pergi club & lepak kat kedai makan.. hari tu I balek pukul 4.00 lebey pagi… memang best.!
