    You are right, that store photo of the mannequins is fabulous. And I could really go for some of that SE Asian street food about now.

    I spent part of the last 2 winters at Mui Ne beach, 4 hour drive from Saigon, nothing special for travelling as it´s mainly a beach full of resorts for Russians, but an amazing destination for wind sports such as kite surf or wind surf. Asian prices are amazing, I stayed at a beautiful 3 star resort for les than 30 usd a day by the beach and with a beautiful garden and swimming pool.

    Cheers and great website!
