We landed in Ho Chi Minh City, the largest city in Vietnam with little expectations. Singapore spoils you. When everything is orderly and systematic, it loses spontaneity. I also love naturalness in people, places and generally in life. Amidst the bustling streets, disorder and chaos, I rediscovered spontaneity. In Saigon.
Here’s how my Vietnam diary reads-
I usually draw a rough sketch of what we can do before any travel, thanks to fellow travel bloggers. However, I don’t quite follow it to the T. Isn’t it better to flow with the tide, many times?
Having heard (also read) rave reviews of Vietnamese cuisine, this was something I wanted to explore. Though not quite first. As we got off to a rather lazy start, we wanted to walk around the backpacker’s area at a stone’s throw away. Strolling through the streets, our senses were awakened. 2 wheelers whizzing through in all directions, bikers almost driving through you, loud honks, and sights of tables on the roads. Tables on roads? Yeah, right!
