SaiGoN III | 探索市区 Exploring the Downtown
还好今天友人有空闲,不至于我一人到处逛。
I was lucky that my friend is free today, otherwise I will be alone.



第一站我们到了位于 Museum of Women 附近的餐厅享用午餐。卖相的确不错,可是入口时,只觉得“超级咸”,我怀疑他的盐是不用钱买的。而且还超级贵!一小嚄的饭、一盘猪肉、一碟菜、两杯果汁,供二人份,要价 VND134,000。
We had our lunch in a restaurant nearby Museum of Women. It looks good but very salted, I wonder if the salt was given to them for free. On top of that, VERY EXPENSIVE! For a table of two, we ordered Pork, vegetables and 2 glasses of fruit juice, total cost is VND134,000.

听起来很有趣,像是在分析越南的女人。其实博物院里展示的都是那些勇敢的妇女,他们都是为了保护自己、家人、家园、找生计及共同抗敌的一分子,对国家的贡献不容忽略。很多越南人都不懂也不曾参观此博物院。
It sounds fun, as it's like analyzing women of Vietnam. This museum is showcasting and appreciation of contribution-to-the-nation to women that are tough, fight for life, protecting themselves and family, fight against enemies during the war. I find that many Vietnamese doesn't know and never visited this museum.


.:: Vinh Nghiem Pagoda 永严寺 ::.



从女人博物院到永严寺只需到对面的巴士站乘搭四号巴士,车资VND3,000。永严寺的特点就是楼高N层的塔。殿堂内有多尊佛像,是善男信女必到的寺庙。
We took bus no. 4 on the opposite of street for our journey from Museum of Women to Vinh Nghiem Pagoda, cost only VND3,000. The most interesting of this Pagoda is the high rise building of Pagoda and the Hall with many Buddha statues, it is one of the MUST VISIT destinations.


.:: The Reunification Palace ::.




前称独立皇宫 (Independence Palace),建于1868年,1873年竣工,拥有136年历史,见证越南的风风雨雨。这也是当年总统居住的皇宫,也用来招待外国政要。楼高四层,入门票是VND15,000。
Formerly known as Independence Palace, it was under construction in 1868, completed in 1873, right now it has 136 years of history and had witnessed the dramatic changed of Vietnam. Besides being a house for former President, it was used to welcome foreign diplomatic. Total of 4 levels, entrance fee cost VND15,000.


.:: Tao Dan Park ::.

但最令我意外的就是城市里的公园 Tao Dan Park,原来闹市里还有一片充满新鲜氧气的绿肺。
What surprising me most is the Tao Dan Park in the city, hardly you can see the greeny park and take a deep yet fresh breath in the in city.


.:: Saigon Notre-Dame Basilica ::.


全胡志民市最古老的教堂。建于863至1880年,法国统治时期。
This will be the oldest church in Saigon. It was built between 863 to 1880, during French Colonial.


.:: Saigon Central Post Office ::.


建于前二十世纪,邮政局前的两座雕像象征着温和。
Built in 20th century, both statues at both sides representing harmony.


.:: Diamond Plaza ::.
位于邮政局及教堂隔邻,是一间高级购物中心。当然在当地的衣物价格明显比大马贵,所以并不值得买。
High-end shopping mall just right beside Saigon Central Post Office and Saigon Notre-Dame Basilica. The clothing over there is apparently more expensive than Malaysia, not a good buy.


.:: Saigon Tourist Centre ::.

可说是另外一个外国游客积聚的地点。外国名牌如LV 等包罗万象,还有Parkson 百盛。每逢华人农历新年,这儿的街道都会被美化及布置,人人誉为花街。
This is a place where you could see more foreign tourists. Branded like LV and etc, could be found here, even Parkson. During Chinese New Year, streets here will be rejuvenates, and it known as Flower Street.


.:: Saigon Opera House ::.

建于1897年,由法国建筑师 Ferret Eugene 所设计建造。
Built in 1897, designed by French Architect Ferret Eugene.


.:: Ho Chi Minh City Hall ::.


这就是胡志民市市政厅的办公楼,也是我们常常看到的照片。它,比我想像中美多了,因为它是位于市中心内。
The administration hall of Ho Chi Minh City Council, we always seen it in the pictures. It looks better than I thought as it is situated right in the heart of the town.


.:: Ben Thanh Market ::.

一个犹如曼谷 Chatuchak Market,样品琳琅满目,要什么应该都会有什么,连蔬菜、海鲜等等都有。早市的营业时间是到五或六时,夜市则在六时半开始营业。为了方便,我们到一间名为 Pho 24 面家享用晚餐。朋友告知 Pho 24 是一间很著名的越南面家,连美国也有连锁店。
It looks similiar with Chatuchak Market in Bangkok, there are variety of goods, you can get whatever you want, even if it's vegetables, seafoods and etc. The operating hours during daytime is until 5 or 6pm, night market would start after 6.30pm. We had our dinner in a noodle house named Pho 24. According to my buddy, Pho 24 is a famous Vietnamese noodle house that able to have chain stores in USA.



吃过晚餐后就到夜市逛一逛,看到了越南多样化的手工艺品,也就是我想买给友人的。我遇到的女售货员,服务态度很好,而且会多国语言。但是我懂杀价是有必要的,所以我也杀到了最低20%至最高40%。
Right after the dinner, I went to the night market and see if I could get any local handmade products for my buddies. The salesgirl that I met is very polite and talented, she speaks different languages. However, I know ask for discount is a must, I'm only able to decrased the price to lowest 20% and highest 40%.

    教堂建於863至1880年? 用了1千年來建? 不大可能吧?
