Holland Village

 photo 20131123_164409_zpsc1222b07.jpgIf you’re wondering what happened to 23/9 Park in D1 in front of Ben Thanh Market, it’s now turned into a little Holland Village.

We went last Saturday just a few minutes after the opening and there was many people milling around. There is no entrance fee. photo 20131123_164529_zpsd8238a42.jpg

It seemed huge from the outside, but the village seemed small with the number of booths and people, I guess. photo 20131123_164554_zpsd5b67863.jpgWas wishing there would be windmills. Hehe.
