The Last Leg Of My Trip In Vietnam, At Ho Chi Minh, With Connie

In this post, I take you through my last few days in Vietnam, spent at Ho Chi Minh city, with Connie Yan.

For the first 2-part post, check this link here.

We had just wound up our trip to Hanoi and Ninh Binh and came to Ho Chi Minh for some of that urban life. We had a nice little Airbnb booked at District 1 (which is the area you should consider staying in when you visit Saigon) that had all places of our interest accessible on foot.

We did a lot of cafes, food, a fair bit of shopping, etc. Connie had to leave for Australia a day prior to me. That was obviously a factor of my airline canceling my return flights. Shout out to Sahil for booking me on follow-up flight the next morning, that took me through Bangkok.

As always, a vlog from my YouTube channel to kick-start this post:

And now, I will take you through our days in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam through images I shot on my phone as we went along.

This basic yet functional AirBnB made our stay in Ho Chi Minh super easy and nice

First meal on our return to Ho Chi Minh was this fancy place called the Secret House
Sapporo Beer
Beer so expensive, we had to split a can. If I am honest though, it is because it was beyond my means.

Perhaps the only image of mine from my trip to Vietnam. I know it isn’t scenic like it were taken at sunrise over a mountain. But I will work with what I can get.
5theway Vietnam
5theway has gained quite the cult following over the years in Vietnam. Almost as much as Supreme, dare I say?

Get you someone who looks at you the way Connie looks at expensive ham and cheese.

Where to get the best Pho in Saigon
Now, this is more like a meal I can pay for. 3 USD. All in. Lol

Lol, another meal I can afford. Beef Stew and Banh Mi bread
What to eat in Vietnam
Connie has always been obsessed with free lime/lemon
Connie Yan
Excited to absorb Vietnamese food and culture. Which is something Connie values a lot more than Indian, as I eventually learned.
Miyama Cafe, Takashimaya
Almond Milk Butterscotch Frappe. I did not know Almonds have titties.

Yet again, fancy dessert at Miyama Cafe, which is beyond my means. All paid for by Connie

I don’t think I have ever loved someone as unconditionally as I have loved this fucking pain in the ass!

I can’t do selfies, even if it meant more representation on social media. Which is why I seldom make it.

Perhaps the last time I see Connie
Snob Coffee Vietnam
Stepped out of the AirBnB late at night to get me some coffee since I was all alone and feeling hella lonely
