I spent a few days in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City). It's a very active cosmopolitan city with lots of motor bikes all over. Took a boat ride and it was like I was in Disney World; I went from the hustle and bustle of the big city to total tranquility and lush greenery in an instant once the boat went under a bridge.

Had a great time in Saigon. Not much to see, but lots to do.
