i had to be in VN this weekend on work and got a few hours off to explore the city. my second trip to Ho Chi Minh City..
one of the first things u notice when u walk on the streets. there must be millions of these 2 wheelers in the city.. jam packed from end to end.
that BG music you hear is the radio in the cab (not my slick editing to bring the oriental flavor ;))
HCM is quite like any city in the developing world of SEA or India. Cleaner than most that I have seen and with an explosion of food. it has a French hangover in its architecture and food. its definitely a foodie’s paradise (dont miss La Camargue for dinnner & Au pat for breakfast)
the Song Sai gon river flows thru the city.
