We’ve made it! After two seven hour flights we have finally arrived in Vietnam.
Our first stop is Ho Chi Minh City where we’ll be spending four nights in the Duc Vuong Hotel in the heart of District 1. Our main reason for choosing the Duc Vuong was it’s very own roof top bar. Views from up here are amazing and the food is quite good as well. Beers are available for as little as 12, 000 dong which is around £0.30. Highlight of the roof top bar is the lovely waitress Jade who is pleasantly bubbly and sociable. The room itself is pretty standard but a good enough size. Most importantly it’s clean.
For tomorrow we have planned a city walking tour (Lonely Planet will be our guide). No doubt there will be lots of walking and dangerous road crossing involved.
