Xin chào Vietnam! Pt.2

Ho Chi Minh City (or Saigon) was the 2nd city we went to. While Hanoi is where the seat of government is, Saigon is Vietnam’s commercial hub.

The Mekong is the 7th longest river in Asia and is a major trading route between South East Asia and the rest of Asia. We were brought to My Tho, a city that lies along the Mekong Delta.

Saigon itself retains many remains of the Vietnam War but is now a bustling city oozing with capitalism.

For example, the War Remnants Museum pretty much showcases all the atrocities the US inflicted during the Vietnam War and yet ironically, there’s also a souvenir shop located in the main atrium.

Alas, our time in Vietnam was up. It was a hot but enjoyable trip. There’s something very ‘old world’ about Vietnam that I can’t adequately put into words and I plan on making another trip to the other major cities that I didn’t manage to go to like Da Nang and Hoi An.
