We arrived in Saigon on May 8 and it was HOT! The city is completely frenetic and we were pretty overwhelmed stepping off the plane after a 20 hour flight. Nevertheless, we forewent the transfer service offered by our hotel and hopped on the bus to District 1. With the help of some friendly folks on the bus, we got off at the right stop and started our three days in Saigon. During our time in the city we sweated through about three outfits a day, were drinking ice cold beer every day by 11 am (no choice, in that heat!), rode motorbikes, and ate all kinds of amazing food.
