    Should have plan to go to the oldest pagoda that built by Khmer kings in 12 centuries in Saigon,so why cause,Saigon in the past is an Khmer land.

    When you stay in Hoi an/ stay at Little Hoi An along the river. Right across from the old town and the people are so kind and treat you as family.

  4. Mr. Green

    Please consider to share 1/ what websites /pages you use to book flights, room, rides, etc 2/ Also what the cost of the visa in each country you visit.

    Love. Excellent video and very inspiring. Not sure you gave Hoi An a good chance because of the flood. It is a magical place and Ba Na Hills is a 'must visit'. Hanoi is also amazing if you stay in Old Quarter and visit on the weekend when they close all the streets for walking.

    Although I do not know where you come from, but maybe your place will be different from Vietnam, but I hope you will be happy when you have visited Vietnam thank you for your interest in Vietnam.

    I'm a Filipino and been living here for almost a year now. I love Vietnam especially district 1. One thing I don't like is their crowded street, full of trash and seems everyone isn't good at English.

  9. shadanan

    Seems as a great place for photography; mix of modern, colonial and traditional architecture.
    How's the public transportation? And is Veg food widely available?

    Wt heck , OMG can't believe you go to that church in District 5 . That it where i used to go for Elementary , if you look closer to the right you can see the Elementary school. China town in Saigon is more spreading out rather than America ( They located in one place ) In Saigon Chinatown is District 6 and 5 ( Whole ) , that is just More Chinese people living not selling but around where you have been that is where most of the China mix Vietnam food you can find

    You two are so cute together, love the enthusiasm and open-mindedness! I'm heading to VN for the first time in September and will refer to your videos for recommendations, so thank you! Btw, love the vlogging style and beautiful scenery shots.
