Ho Chi Minh City: Cliff Notes Edition

So I am calling this blog post Ho Chi Minh City: Cliff Notes Edition since it’s realistically just a quick snap shot of Ho Chi Minh City. Now of course I could go through and say most of the places I stay at are just a quick snap shot of what is truly there to discover; but, I actually got the opportunity at the end of my Contiki Big Indochina Tour to spend some time, 8 days to be exact, in Ho Chi Minh. Hence, I will save the finer details about this city for that post.

In the meanwhile, please do enjoy some of the lovely must-see tourist attractions included in this blog post, like the Notre-Dame Basilica.

Complete with a perfectly timed just married photo op! Actually, I believe they were doing some sort of fashion shoot since there was three different couples all posing for photographs.

And the Central Post Office, with its claim to fame being that it was designed and built by Gustave Eiffel, aka the guy that built the Eiffel Tower.

Aside from that, the only otherΒ mention would be our stop outside the War Remembrance Museum, which literally was just a stop outside since it was closed due to an electrical problem.

Oh life, that is how it is sometimes. Till the next post!
