Danang to Saigon

We eventually had to leave paradise (AKA Hoi An and China Beach), bound for Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon).

I booked our flight through LastMinuteTravel.com using vouchers they provided for me to try out their service. Everything was a breeze, even though I initially was wary because most LastMinuteTravel.com deals are related to US travel. But as it turned out, they do have something for everyone.

In the Danang airport I bought some local snacks. I don’t know what they were but we enjoyed eating them!

Deeds gets excited about buses and airplanes and trains these days.


We rode a shuttle to get to our airplane.


Deeds was in awe!


When we got on the plane one of the other passengers had on a motorcycle helmet. Safety first, you know!


When we got to Ho Chi Minh City, we hired a taxi and the driver carried Deeds in his arms all the way to the minivan.


Our hotel, the Saigon Mini Hotel, was in district 9 of HCMC so it was a bit of a ride. We checked in at about 3pm and then had “lunch” at our new favorite- Tokyo Deli!


It is our new fave because it is delicious and CHEAP Japanese food! Miso soup was like 50 cents! Sushi rolls were around $2.

We ended up eating there 3 or 4 times in 4 days. Woot! And the boys put away some serious edamame.

    I wish we had even an expensive Japanese restaurant in our town (closest is about 25 minutes away). My sushi-making skills are lacking–never can get them to look nice.

    I love how Deeds is excited about vehicles. Soren is like that right now, especially when he sees a helicopter or firetruck.
