We arrived in the bustling city of Saigon, or Ho Chi Minh. The sheer number of mopeds/motobikes here is incredible - we have been told that 1 in every 2 people has a moto, or 4.5 million out of the 9 million population!! Crossing the roads here is a bit of a nightmare to say the least - weaving is the way to go, and praying!

Saigon is actually really nice and we were surprised to find everyone so friendly after expecting it to be a bit of a China. People were selling books and come up to us in restaurants etc but unlike Phnom Penh, they accept it when you say no and walk on. We enjoyed some good food and a few San Miguels, not the beer we expected to find in Vietnam!
