Pho in Ho Chi Minh City - The best you can get!

I'm not a Pho connoisseur. I really don't understand when people say this place or that is the best pho. I guess it depends on the broth and the meat but the subtle differences between locations is lost on me.

Airport Lounging and Showering

Airport Lounging and Showering

I have a thing about showering in lounges. Even if I don't need a shower it is always fun, just because I can. Why not give the little bathroom lady something to do? If no one used the shower and took a poop in the private bathroom then she would be out of a job. I'm helping unemployment. I'm going to shower for the betterment of others.
