Hello, welcome to Saigon!

Have you ever wondered what is going on at Vietnam? How it looks like? How busy are the streets? What do they do for a living? This is a brief story from my short trip to Vietnam with my family.

It was at the end of last year when my family and I planned for a holiday to Vietnam (after calculating the costs; quite cheap). When we just arrived there; we were in total shock! The streets are damn busy with motorcycles everywhere and it was almost impossible to go to the other side of the road. Even the tour guide recommended us to just close our eyes while crossing! How polite Vietnamese were towards foreigners. Places of interests? You can guess; war remnants! Cu Chi Tunnel was amazing, you can even duck underground and feel how the Communists lived in that freaking hot tunnel. The museums there were super awesome cool too with many jet fighters and helicopters everywhere. Do not forget to pay a visit to Mekong River too! Hitch a small boat and flee yourself just like Rambo; you can feel like you are being watched by the Communists. Partying? No problem, Ho Chi Minh City or also known as Saigon is the best city in Vietnam to party all night long!

So what are you waiting for? Asians are waiting (even Rambo!) for you. The food, the people, the history and the country are anticipating your arrival.

Do not forget not to open your eyes while crossing the roads!
