After breakfast, with Araki's car we went out to hunting for plants, but nothing much we can find. Then, we decided to go to Son Be, another district of Ho Chi Minh City, about 30 minutes from City Area, to visit the show room of Minh Long Ceramic. For those who like to collect figurines, small items, bowl, plates, cup, etc.. you can come here and get it cheaper. But.. please remember your baggage allowance..

We joint one of the local tour agent, Saigon Tourist to My Tho (read as "Mee Toh"). This town is about 2 hours drive from Ho Chi Minh City.
The town of My Tho is lies on the left side of Mekong River. We enjoyed a cruise on Mekong River, then ride on a hand-rowed sampan under a green canopy of water-coconut trees. Stopped at few places to enjoy the seasonal fruits, honey tea, and lunch of country delicacies. For adult, the price is USD40.00 for full day tour (08.00 - 17.00).
I took airport taxi to downtown (cost U$5.00 plus toll VND5,000-equal to S$0.50 at the time I exchanged money).
We stayed at Inge Araki's house (Lan's sister) at Vietnam Golf & Country Club, about 30 minutes from HCM City.
2. Notre Dame Cathedral
