Saigon Vietnam

Sidney and I went to Saigon in Vietnam in January 2010. This was our first trip to Vietnam. Saigon is a thriving and busy city, and the traffic is unbelievable. Mostly motorbikes, but they do not stop for you! To cross the road you have to step out into the traffic and expect that they will go around you!

Signs in the streets

It's easy to forget that Vietnam is a communist country
