I intended to visit a beach near Ha Tien today. Instead, I mapped out my return route and overnight stops back to HCMC. Then I reserved three nights, starting tomorrow, at Rocks Beach Boutique Bungalows on Phu Quoc Island, an early birthday present to myself.
To start my return, I will take the 0830 ferry from Phu Quoc to Rach Gia on the 7th and then ride 60 km to Vi Thanh, Hau Giang. It will be a long day, but sets me up to ride to HCMC in six days of about 60 km per day. The exception will be the last day; about 23 km to Lan and Loi’s house in HCMC. I’ll start super early so I can enter the city ahead of some traffic, rested and alert.
