Man it felt nice to leave Bien Hoa and head past the Ho Tri An lake towards the mountains. Many places on the way inviting for stops such as a lovely church (as so many in Vietnam, not that old) in Dong Nai where we spotted a couple taking wedding pics. Of course, we also stopped for more Pho soup! In any case, the most enjoyable day riding wise so far… Bum pain decreasing! 😁
Laura’s comment: The waterfalls were a lot better than we had imagined. A lot of nature and an amazing view!
Mid afternoon we reached the small town of Bao Loc. How different to HCM! Clean, less traffic, organised. We quickly checked in to visit the unrivalled highlight of the day – the Dambri falls. Wow! Feels a bit like Rivendale in Lord of the Rings 😉
On the 15min ride from town you are surrounded by the coffee plantations and pass by some amazing temples (we didn’t stop for all of them though).
Something, however, wasn’t right with the bike – aka LA FURIOSA – as we named it. Didn’t take power that well anymore… Well, good enough for now.
Our main dish remains the Pho soup. A noodle soup to which they add either chicken (Ga), beef (Bo) or pork (Heo). Gets you by though it doesn’t fill your stomach for too long. Below a sample menu (1 EUR = 26,600 Vietnamese Dong).
