We arrived in Saigon after a bus journey via Mui Ne, which looked like a nice little beachy town. We arrived quite late and went to the nearest (cheapest) hostel we could find, which actually turned out to be quite good. That night there was also a big thunder storm, which we didn't mind too much, as we just ate some more food!! It reminded us of Khao San Road (Bangkok), loads of people looking for cheap food and accomodation. The traffic here was also reminiscent of Hanoi, but worse!!! Apparently there is more than 1 scooter per person in Saigon!
The next day we woke up to a beautiful day and went to the local market which was huge! You could hardly move and people were tugging at us to buy whatever they had from all angles! Later that day, we caught some cyclos, and did a tour of the whole city. The best (and worst) thing we did was probably the War museum. It was shocking really, learn't about all sorts of terrible methods used in the war. We were also shown this Bonsai tree garden, where this bloke pointed out all the differences and intricacies of the little (and big) trees in the garden.
That night we went to a few different bars and met loads of people from all over, we ended the night with a bit of live music and dancing in a wild west / saloon style club, it was great fun and the band were actually brilliant!
The next day, our guide book took us to what can only be described as a rubbish Alton Towers!! There was a zoo there and all the animals looked to be mistreated, Jon got chased by a goat, hilarious! There was a ghost house that Jon thought was amazing and Daisy was less keen (for those of you that know the Pyramid of Terror in Terra Mittica, it wasn't far off!), it was a laugh though and we both got out unharmed.
That evening we caught a plane back to Bangkok.
