XIN CHAO: WELCOME TO VIETNAM
We crossed the mekong delta coming from Cambodia and here we are in Vietnam! An interesting journey being the only 2 people as passangers on a large boat…quite a private tour!
Chao Doc in the far south of Vietnam was our first stop, then Can Tho where we spent 7 hrs on the mekong river visitng floating villages and markets.
The next stop brought us to Ho Chi Minh City also known as former Saigon, the economic pulsing heart of the country. It’s a big city with over 3 mio. motorbikes making every street crossing a real adventure. It has its charm and as everywhere in Vietnam the street food was diverse and excellent. After a couple of days we decided to move north and spent one day in Muy Ne, a beach town created for tourists. We didn’t like it there.
A really relaxing place, a UNESCO world heritage site, is Hoi An, a town full of lanterns and lights, sooooooo romantic during the night! Apart from its ancient houses and temples, Hoi An is famous for tailor made clothes and shoes! We now are continuing our travel to the north, left Hoi An two days ago and had our first Thyphoon experience (strong winds and heavy rain) during our trip.
Below the first impressions of Vietnam, enjoy!
