Crossing a large intersection in Ho Chi Minh City was practice for dealing with the roads and traffic throughout Vietnam.
It was time to begin our train adventures. Our destination – an overnight train from Ho Chi Minh City to Da Nang and then a 40-minute drive to Hoi An.
With a list of recommendations in hand, we roamed the city to find the best of Saigon’s vegetarian cuisine in the short time we were there.
We had a couple of days in Ho Chi Minh City aka Saigon. It was hot and humid but we still managed to see a few sites. Here’s a list of the places we visited.
We bartered down the price for a day tour and travelled to Cai Be to spend our Sunday on the Mekong.
Everything seemed to be going well, until we reached the Vietnamese border and I was denied entry.
