Ben Thanh Market

Picked up a bit of a head cold in Hoi An (I think) which peaked yesterday. I hit it hard with medications and slept in this morning (and took a good nap in the afternoon) and am feeling much better this evening. Sitting here in the Hotel Majestic lobby bar planning my evening.

I did get out this afternoon and walked to the Ben Thanh market about a mile from here. It is a famous “traditional” market here in the District 1 (the central business district of SaiGon) and it has to be experienced first hand. Blocks wide on each side packed as tight as can be with merchants of all sorts. Not exactly my favorite shopping experience, but a Saigon scene that must be seen!
