Phu Quoc to HCMC (November 24)

Our last full day in Vietnam, we had most of the day to relax in Phu Quoc. I walked downtown, but the town was sleepy, and there were no banana rice treats to be found.

I stopped in at an air-conditioned coffee shop and enjoyed some watermelon juice which I thought looked a bit like a turkey…but probably just because I had Thanksgiving on the brain.

I continued walking, and wound up near a pagoda and temple, with some nice views. Unfortunately, my phone camera decided to start acting up (not focusing properly) so I didn’t get any good pictures.

A hot walk back, I cut through the restaurant where we’d had dinner, and walked along the beach toward our hotel.

I ran into one of the Canadians, who was sitting on the beach, painting. We chatted for a bit, and then I took her recommendation and went back up the beach to a place where I got a beach-side aloe vera massage. Cooling, but sticky.

Then, back to the hotel, a lunch of banh mi and banana smoothie nearby, and relaxing/reading by the hotel pool until it was time to head to the airport.

Our flight to HCMC was mostly on time (a first for VietJet?) and our hotel was just a short, 10-minute obstacle course walk away.

Last supper at a local noodle shop (yum!)

Then it was early to bed ahead of our early morning flight home. All in all, a good trip!
