Soaking It Up in Saigon, Hoi An, Hue, and Hanoi!

The second leg of our adventure saw us explore Vietnam from south to north. Here are a few photohighlights from this incredible country:

Sweating in Saigon...

A mess of a telephone pole.

I could not get enough of the cafe su da!

Fruit is plentiful in Saigon.

Cutting up fruit to sell.

Fresh baguettes for sale. Be careful not to purchase the one touching the ground.

Never a dull moment in Saigon. Do you see the boy sleeping?

One of many incredible dinners we enjoyed while in Saigon.

Jackfruit anyone?

Meandering through the Mekong Delta...

Donning the iconic Vietnamese hat while exploring the Mekong Delta.

Copious amounts of fruit at a plantation in the Mekong Delta. Sweet and juicy pomelo!

Murky water in the rice bowl of Asia.

History in Hoi An and Hue...

China Beach, where US troops came ashore in the 1970s.

A market in the old town of Hoi An.

Getting clothes measured and made in Hoi An at a fraction of the cost.

Jen whizzing about the streets in Hue.

Hectic Hanoi...

The usually hectic streets are quiet after a rainstorm in the Old Quarter of Hanoi.

A haircut on the streets of Hanoi.

Ducks on their way to the market.

Well at least we know they are fresh, right?

The best KFC ever! It is probably because the chicken is so local and fresh!

Sweet pineapple.

Hopping aboard a junk and exploring Halong Bay...

Our junk, the Santa Maria Cruiser.

Learning at a young age how to sell their wares to the tourists.

A handful of the more than 1900 islands that dot this World UNESCO Site.
