    Ho Chi Minh City

    July 18, 2017 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 31 °C

    First stop in Vietnam!

    Day 18- Arrived in the evening and the City was really busy, it comes alive at night here!! We dropped our bags off, showered after a long few days of travelling and went for an explore of what's close to where we were staying- we were right in the middle of everything :)

    Day 19- We walked so far today! Got a map from the hostel and headed out for the day. Stopped at a local bakery for croissants and chocolate muffins for breakfast which were amazing! Then carried on to Ben Thanh Markets which were massive and like a maze but sold everything. We carried on to find the War Remnants Museum, something we are glad we saw as learned a lot about the history of the country but have to say it was very hard hitting and emotional.
    Finished off with our first proper date night at a local bar for food and drinks :)
