After the mad dash to reach Hanoi I spent one night there before heading to Halong Bay. However, we did return for nother couple of days to organise our trip to SaPa and our route into Laos. As a city its pretty generic. Big. Went to see Ho Chi Minh, ... Read more >

Dalat

So we turned up to Saigon pretty late in the evening. The central area we stayed in was pretty western looking - very french influenced. Stayed a couple of nights, the city itself is pretty much what you expect, but the Cu Chi tunnels outside were ... Read more >
