Good to know
As soon as you arrive in Ho Chi Minh, it will feel like a tunnel into the past. The color red will be distinct as it decorates women wearing national dress, the Ao Dai, the flags, and the beautiful, tropical fruits you can buy at the Ben Thanh market. At Saigon City Hall, see the relics of French colonization. The Chi Chi tunnels in Saigon serve as memory to lives lost during the Vietnam war. Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) is often remembered for the wars and colonization that it endured, but what was birthed from the stormy history is beautiful sights and a city booming with Vietnam’s renewed life.

Van to Muine
The 2 seats we got together didnt have much leg room. However the ride was smooth, we made a bathroom stop (which had toilet paper and snacks for purchase), the AC worked well, and the seats were comfortable.

Driver came earlier than supposed. The seat was the last in the back, very little space for my legs.
