Tour name: China tour 🍥🍜
Time: 2 p.m, April 4th
Pick up at: Majestic hotel⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Guides: Nhat Linh and Mai Trúc Quỳnh👭
Guests: Joanna and Helen from Australia 🐨
We picked them up at the hotel and moved to the temples by Grab. At first, Joanna wanted to change the Grab driver because the car didn’t have any seat belts. Fortunately, the driver found the seat belts 😂. Only then we could move to the temples. Joanna said that Vietnamese people didn’t use seat belts, so there were many accidents occurred and Joanna was very scared of the traffic in Viet Nam. She wondered why the cars, motorbikes always “bip bip”, and suddenly, a car passed by at high speed😵. Because of that, when we booked Grab to come back the hotel later, we made sure that there were seat belts in car.
During the tour
First, we visited Thien Hau temple. We talked about some stories of Thien Hau godness, architecture, pictures in the roof incenses,….
Then, we moved to Ong temple, we talked about triple gate, stairs, Asian unicorns, dragons, phoenixes… and Quan Cong. There were some questions about Quan Cong’s red skin and his very long beard (most of it based on folk lore).
Joanna and her friend were extremely interested in Asian culture, architecture, and the folks of it.
The China tour usually ends very soon because of transportation, and there are only two pagoda. Joanna really wanted to visit more pagoda but we couldn’t 😅, so we suggested to visit a nearby market. But the market was too small and dirty😶. So, as that the way the ball bounces, we had to come back.
They were closed friends for a long time, they left their jobs, their husbands and children at home to travel together.😂The tour finished after we have walked around the nearby market. On the way back the hotel, we chatted together about a lot of things such as out schedule, the hobby, family….. 💟💟
