Vietnam - Ho Chi Minh City

This motorbike traffic pretty much sums up Ho Chi Min City.

...and we really got amongst it. Andrea's brother, Joe, rented a bike and Andrea hitched a ride with a local. As terrifying as it was, it truly is the best way to get around and see the most of the city on your own. 

One of our stops was the Jade Emperor Temple.

Another stop, was the Ben Thanh Market. This indoor market was packed wall to wall with anything from clothing and shoes to pho noodle soup and curries.

Speaking of, this is the beef pho, definitely one of our favorite dishes.

At night we didn't have to go far for entertainment. The streets are lined with these plastic chairs facing the street to watch the nights madness in the backpacker district. 

...and the shopping comes right to you. ...next stop, Ben Tre, Vietnam.



  1. Let's try to make the Pho when you're back next week!

  2. Sounds good! I'll bring the chopsticks.
