Find all about my Vietnam Trip Last summer was an amazing experience.  I will never forget in July 2015 with my Friend and twin to Vietnam for 3 weeks in Vietnam trip. Before heading off backpacking around Vietnam I was debating that 3 weeks was not enough time to see the whole country but it was. The route was staring in the south in HO CHI MINH – DALAT – NHA TRANG – HOI AN – HUE – HANOI – SAPA – HA LONG BAY and back to HANOI.

Was very excited to go as the year before I went to Thailand and that was epic and could not wait to see more of Asia. You can read about that trip hears.\r\nWe arrived in Ho Chi Minh (Saigon) at night and we were very tired as we had 2 plain fights that were 12 hours and an 8-hour layover in Dubai. As we went in the taxi. On the way to the hotel. I was overwhelmed that it is night time and still the town was very lively. There were hundreds of mopeds. In Vietnam for every two people living there, there is one moped, so that is a lot.
Ho Chi Minh the south of Vietnam had worst of the weather during the trip as when we were in Ho Chi Minh it was pretty much raining the 3 and a half days we were there. Ho chi Mini is the biggest city and not the capital. Cu Chi TunnelsThe next day we went to the famous Cu Chi Tunnels. They are a large network of connecting tunnels running under the country. They were built for the Vietnam War and were the Viet Cong’s base. It was breathtaking seeing the traps the Viet Cong made and getting to go in part if the tunnel. Mekong Delta and war museum.
The second day we head over to Mekong Delta and then the war museum. First stop was The Mekong Delta in southern Vietnam. It is a vast maze of rivers, swamps islands Home to floating markets, pagodas, and villages surrounded by rice paddies. Boats are the main means of transportation. The region is home to small businesses and people living there. The boat trip started heading over deep into the delta.
The trip involved a few stops to local business and culture. The first stop was to see how bricks were made. Then the next stop was a coconut business. They showed us the different uses of the outer shell. As well as tasting some coconut candy and to my surprise, it was lovely as I normally don’t like coconuts. The last thing we did. that the trip entailed was lovely lunch with locally caught fish that was swordfish and fresh chicken. We got back to the city in the afternoon and head over to the war museum to learn about the famous war and they had tanks and plains there to look at. A few minutes in walking around it started raining so we headed back to the hostel. The next town went to be Da Lat which will be in part 2 post.
