Daytime average temperature averages about 32 degrees F while it falls to a more comfortable 25 F at night. So you would think it's pretty much similar to Singapore.

The cooling effect of winds were also missing unlike here we get sea breezes blown inland.
After that nice untypical Vietnamese lunch, we proceeded to a quiet mud-caked pathway where about 10 horse-drawn buggies were waiting for us.
Each buggie could sit a maximum of 4 persons and pulled by a single horse.
Once all were boarded, the signal was given and the horses moved off along the same path.
There were potholes here and there and the buggie driver tried his best to go round them..not so successful at times. The wheel of my buggie hit one and we were bumped upwards...and down again. The screams and yells I heard from other buggies confirmed the others were also enjoying
this bumper-ti-bump ride very much!
The drivers seemed to enjoy listening to all these thrilling screams probably equating it to a job well done.
The horse buggies, all loaded and moving off.

In this buggie..D2 and Minister Lim Hwee Hua.

We arrived at a village hub which has a cottage industry.
