My 1st out of the country tour: vietnam (part 1)

Hello! I'm not sure if I have viewers here in my personal blog. :)  I'm semi-active bloger and I only post my travels. This time, it's my 1st travel outside the Philippines. Vietnam-Cambodia leg last Nov 20-28. :)

Vietnam - Cambodia Itinerary available here.

My travel buddies.
Gibbo, me and my sister cams :)

My 1st stamp passport. Nostalgia. Yung feeling ng  5yr old kid na nilagyan ng stamp sa kamay o sa notebook. Na eexcite ka gusto mong ipagmalaki na meron ka ng stamp sa wakas! hehe

Our hotel in vietnam is Luan Vu hotel. Our room has 1 single bed and 1 double bed good for 3 pax and with complimentary breakfast. My first impression in vietnam is wow. superb! The street on where Luan vu located  is called western backpackers. The location has so many restaurant, bars, tour bookings, atms and 10 min walk to Ben tanh market. http://luanvuhotel.com/

We booked the tour mekong delta river and Ho Chi Minh tunnel in Sinh Tourist. Walking distance in our hotel. Here's the official site https://www.thesinhtourist.vn/. Beware of fraud site.

Its my 1st time to try Vietnamese food and I like it. We tried the street foods. Eat what locals eat rules! :)
