Ho Chi Minh City formerly known as Saigon.
A bustling capitalist mega-town in a socialist country.
I was also there last year but this time aroud; man has the city changed! High rises everywhere (the latest addition was a 77 stories office building!!), bright neon signs, luxury European cars on every intersection (although the streets are still dominated motorcycles) - you can really feel that the country is exploding economically.
The food is just wonderful and the best part is that you can find excellent coffee on every street corner (something that is very rare in my travels around Asia).
For the 60th birthday of my father I promised him to bring him to Vietnam.
It was for him "the dream" destination because his father went to Vietnam during the war as solder.
We spent 8 days in Vietnam in different cities: Saigon, Hanoi, Halong Bay, and Sapa.
We met so many amazing people there.
Here is the movie about this amazing trip, I hope this movie will be able to make you travel like we did.
