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. I had no idea I’d love Vietnam so much – the food was amazing, gorgeous scenery, friendly locals and lovely culture. I certainly saw a ton of the country. From Sapa (where I did the trekking) to HCMC is about 1,200 miles!
I spent the last 2 days sightseeing and exploring. I love big cities to just wander and get lost. There are so many sights, people to watch, etc.
I took a fair amount of pictures, mostly of well known sights, and included them below. I didn’t take many street/city shots (a few below), as it’s relatively similarities to other cities.
Traffic is bad, but not any crazier than Hanoi. I figured out that you just need to be confident when crossing the street and go. The motorbikes will go around you – they’re used to it. It’s actually worse to stop and confuse them, as they already have figured out how to get by.
I’m off to the Mekong Delta tomorrow for a day trip, and will share a post after!
