Ho Chi Minh City, also known as Saigon was our first port of call in Vietnam.
It's an energetic, vibrant city that embraces its traditional and French Colonial past. There is now also a desire to modernise as the younger generations choose careers in education, tourism & finance.
We loved our time in Saigon.
We ate well, completed a cooking class, tried our first Vietnamese coffee, walked our legs off & learnt to cross the road Vietnamese style (more of that later).
