The night market on the Friday night was fine, not too busy. On Saturday it was packed! After 20 mins pushing through people we gave up and retired to the hostel to watch a movie.

This bustling night market was a real eye opener. We got to try some local delicacies, like Popiah which is basically the tasiest fresh spring roll ever.

 

Famous Jonker street

Fri 4th November 2011

This is the famous Jonker street and where we got lost on our first day in Malacca. There are so many antique shops to explore and countless side streets littered with craft workshops.

I really loved Jonker Street, it really reminded me of the Lanes in Brighton.

I’m a tourist, get me out of here!

Due to the heat, most of the Vietnamise don’t emerge till dusk. This was hugely apparent when we exited the theatre – just look at these crowds!

Where did all these people come from? I thought the day time was busy, but this night market was packed at 10pm. I think everyone in Hanoi was there as it took us ages to get back to our hotel.

Once out of the theatre, we were plunged into the heaving crowds of downtown Hanoi. It was certainy and experience trying to make it back to our hotel!

 

Market on the Delta

Wed 17th August 2011

I happened to capture this shot of one of the locals passing through the market. It isn’t for the faint hearted. The smell was overpowering to say the least.

This was a very large market quite close to the river. It was mainly full of fish and fruit. The fish were a Vietnamese delicacy, as fresh as they can be as most were still alive.
