We were introduced to each other. They are a very friendly family. They said they are on their 1 month holiday. Before that they went to Hanoi,Hội An,Đà Lạt…and Saigon is last place where they visit.
During the tour
we booked the grab to where we planned to take them to eat but unfortunately it was closed. So we walked to a nearby restaurant. Then we ordered the food. They are rice rolls(bánh cuốn), rice with oysters(cơm hến), grilled meat with lemongrass, “bánh bèo”. They are very like the food there. the dish were very strange with them because they have not eaten before. While eating they told us about their travels and they said they loved Ha Long bay most.
After eating we walked to the turtle lake. On our way we talked together a lot. Scotty also like Sapa. He told me about his travels there and he was involved in folk games such as “ném còn”.He expressed and I guess maybe this game😆and they asked us about the festival in Sapa that people drink wine in a large jar and with long straws together. Hoàng explained that it is the culture of ethnic minorities and it’s called “rượu cần”. They drank it with their nose. They were surprised to hear. When we came to turtle lake, their sons very like one .and we ordered vietnamese pizza (bánh tráng nướng)and “fried meatball”. Their sons liked to go to the top of the lake,so we were up there. there was a very cool atmosphere. Scotty’s wife got joking that she could sleep there😂.
Finally we booked grab to return to the hotel.when we arrived we were bye bye each other .We are happy to know their family.☺☺
