Saigon – Final Vietnam Stop

Our final stop in Vietnam was to Ho Chi Minh. Actually, though it was recently changed to Ho Chi Minh, everyone still refers to it as Saigon. After talking to fellow backpackers we were expecting the city to be as crazy as Hanoi. However, it was significantly better. Ho Chi Minh is the equivalent of Thailand’s Bangkok. It is a city in which people live and work, and in which tourists and expatriates play. The food is international, and we actually spent two of our two dinners at a little Italian place. (This is a big deal, because I never like to visit the same restaurant abroad twice). We spent our days wandering the streets and visiting markets. It was pleasant to not be targeted for sellers’ assaults.
