I’m still not sure whether to call the city Saigon or Ho Chi Minh City! All I know for sure is that it must be the motorbike capital of the world. And possibly the coffee shop sub capital. Every. Where. There is certainly no shortage of coffee availability in Vietnam! The motorbikes were awesome but I feel like they have the right of way, so we ended up playing real life frogger quite a bit while crossing streets and roundabouts with no lights.
Our time in HCM was not very structured. We spent most of the time hanging out or walking around eating different places and seeing different things. On our first day there, our AirBnB host hired a friend of his to take us to do whatever you need…so Sonny took us to breakfast, to get a Sim Card for charlie, and to exchange money. They don’t take USD here like they do in Cambodia!
Here are some pictures of different things we saw. The architecture is beautiful…I believe French inspired from the times of French Indochina.
