The first thing that assaults you when you arrive in Ho Chi Minh are the distinctly accented alphabets of the signs around.
It was a pleasant ride going to HCM despite the 12 hours. Needless to say I was deadbeat when we arrived.
I was supposed to stay in this hotel recommended by a friend but when I arrived there there's no available single room.
The cheap that I am I decided to look for another hotel coz I don't want to pay for a double room. Money saved is still money earned for shopping. Hehehe.
There's KFC in all corners. Or maybe it's just me.
If in Phnom Penh you get a river of motorbikes, in HCM you get a sea of them.
I was relaxed in HCM with no expectation whatsoever with the trip.
