So, We arrived in Saigon (
The end of my stay in
You get the hang of it after a while....
The city was filthy and just as densely populated as I've ever seen. I was pretty sick, just getting over a head cold, so I didn't stay out late. We paid about $3 for dinner, inc beer and then I headed back.
The following day we flew to
The following day we took a boat ride out in the bay. The scenery was incredible, If anyone has seen the movie Indochine - it was set here and I highly recommend seeing it. The islands are huge limestone cliffs jutting out of the sea which is emerald green. We visited the largest cave I've ever seen - and then had some time for swimming. We all dived from the second deck of the boat - it was crazy. We even swam like a 20 minute swim to a nearby island!! We then dined like kings on whole king crabs and shrimp. Definitely the highlight of my trip so far...
We are now back in
