    Day 15 Ho Chi Minh City (Sai Gon)

    October 16, 2018 in Vietnam ⋅ ⛅ 32 °C

    In the middle of the night we got waked up by the bus driver because we had already arrived in Ho Chi Minh City which is the former Sai Gon. What to do at around 3 AM? We decided to go to the hostel and wait there until breakfast time and this plan worked out quite well. On our way we met Marta from Poland who was also on the bus. We chatted a while with her and then we tried to sleep on the floor. Later we had breakfast and went to the War Remnants Museum. This museum features some facts from the Vietnam War and mainly the cruelties from the USA. After seeing the Notre Dame cathedral, the opera and other sights we went back to the hostel because we got picked up. We made a tour to the Cu Chi Tunnels of the Vietcong about 60km away. Our guide told a lot about the war strategies during the Vietnam War and showed us the tunnels. We crawled 100m through them ourselves, very exhausting considering the tiny size and the high humidity. After coming back to the city we had dinner at a street food place nearby and then went to bed.Read more
