Sihanoukville - Ho Chi Minch City, Vietnam

Written on: Saturday November 3rd, 2007

A journal entry from: London

Well I survived the 14hr bus trip and immergration authorities thus arrived safely in HCMC.  They don't lie this city is none stop 24hrs - it's not annoying though - quite funny watching people buzz about and it's a really fun city. I was actually informed that I would get hazzled 24/7 with people trying to sell me stuff - after Cambodia I was not in the mood for anything like that - but it's not all that bad.

The city itself is a lot bigger than I imagined so I hired a man with a bike for the morning - as you do - and ventured out to do some of the tourist stuff. I'm gonna stay here for a couple of nights but venture out on a tour tomorrow to the southern Islands at Mekong Delta - not gonna stay on any of them though as I need to venture up north pretty quickly if I want to see everything. Vietnam is a big country but the transport system here is really good so I should have no bother getting around - fingers crossed!!

Lots of love, Liz xxxx
