Jade Emperor Pagoda–Ho Chi Minh City

We decided to visit the Jade Emperor Pagoda. We caught a taxi from the hotel and it cost 50,000 VND, on the way back we caught another taxi and he tried to charge us 146,000 VND. I gave him 50,000 and got out of the taxi. He was trying to say no – 146,000 but Pam & I just walked off up the stairs to the hotel.

His meter was obviously rigged as it was jumping up super fast…

Lots of turtles in a pond – there must have been more than 300.
