entering ho chi minh

just right after work, just dropped by the house to pick up my packed bag for another backpack trip. this time to one of my favorite Southeast Asian country, Vietnam. our goal was to taste the flavors of Saigon and look back at the remains of the Indochina War.we took the late night schedule from Manila to Vietnam's largest and historical city, Ho Chi Minh. from a planned trip of seven friends down to three determined travelers that includes Nadz, Melissa and i. landed at the country's largest and modern gateway Tan Son Nhat International Airport after about an estimated two and half hour flight. no hassle when checking out. thanks to the airport's efficient service.had our dollars partially converted at the airport for our taxi fee. it's easy to take a cab but warning... you must know how to pronounce your hotel correctly and show a map of the place or else you'll end up going to another place. our Saigon adventure begins here.

Oh waited so long for your HCM's photos..lol. I exchanged my currency at the Post Office. Their rate is good but the rate at an exchange currency shop near Benh Tahn Market is so much better. Looking forward to seeing your other photos of HCM.

You must have arrived @ HCMC's new airport terminal if I'm not mistaken. At nakakuha ka pa ng shot sa immigration ha - buti di ka sinita.
