Arrived safe and sound in Ho Chi Mingh City after 3 flights and about 23 hours in the air. We enjoyed business class seats for most of the journey which certainly eased the pain of being in the air for so long.
Ho Chi Mingh city is a thriving metropolis with a great deal of new hotel and commercial developments underway. These new developments are nestled within much poorer neighborhoods creating a city of great contrasts.
There are motor bikes everywhere. In between cars, on the side walks, on the streets. Car and bike horns can be heard day and night.
We visited the Notre Dame cathedral, Palace, Opera House, all of which are beautiful. We also spent time in war museum, a very sobering experience.
Next stop Cambodia.
