Well, it took from 6:30pm EST on Tuesday until 12:30am (Vietnam time- which is 11 hours later than EST) on Friday, and included a uncomfortable few hours spent "sleeping" on the floor of the Logan Airport instead of a full night's rest at our ... Read more >

Ho Chi Minh City/Saigon

VIETNAM | Tue, 7 Oct 2008 | By katandstevie | Views [750]

We arrived in Saigon/Ho Chi Minh City at around 6am, it appears people aren't quite as early to start in this city as a few hotels we had researched were still closed! We decided to check out a small guesthouse which a guy in Nha Trang had recommended ... Read more >
