So a few weeks back, we had a short trip ’round the city and we ended up over Thu Thiem Tunnel.
These days we have perfectly cool morning weather that you don’t realize you’re frying already under the hot sun.
From across, you have an unencumbered view of Nguyen Tat Thanh and Ton Duc Thang streets.
The floating restaurant, Elisa is a beautiful ship!
And of course, the Bitexco Financial Tower —
The only thing that marred the view is the building to the left of Bitexco. I just wish they’d finish it already. It has been YEARS!
This spot on Thu Thiem is a park as well. And people can mill around freely. There are no establishments around so this is a terrific place to chill.
I would love to come back in the evening to see the lights. Am sure the Lunar New Year fireworks from this view will be picture perfect!
I’m a frequent follower of your blog. And I really like your blog as it’s imformative about restaurants (hey I live 10-min drive to PMH!, so you know why:). Not many Vietnamese write reviews about restaurants in PMH. And the big reason I really like your blog is that you write about the nice sides of Vietnam rather than some expats blogs delving on our ugly sides and ridiculous sides. I know they have reasons to complain or make fun but sometimes, I feel ‘overwhelmed’.
Thanks Lyn for the kind words! I love HCMC! No country is without its flaws but we have to be fair, HCMC has a lot of beautiful things to offer. 🙂
Right:) Sometimes a noisy and crowded HCMC tires me down, but then I love its charms again and even more. The food is the biggest plus point to me btw:)
