Realistically I probably could go, but it would be very rushed and I'd definitely like to check out Bangkok. … Continue reading Farewell Vietnam!
I can't believe I'm in my last city in Vietnam - Ho Chi Minh/Saigon. The locals still call it Saigon throughout Vietnam. My 30 day visa is almost up here - I fly to Bangkok on Sunday.
