20/6/2014 – Saigon
From Bangkok to Saigon. Fairly easy trip, got to the airport and got a taxi ok. Went for a walk to the opera house to get our tickets for the AO show we were going to, past a couple of other famous buildings. Had a walking tour in the arvo and went to the imperial palace. Was bombed at the end of the war, but they rebuilt it, but don’t use it. For Vietnamese culture it is very oppulent. Had a huge bomb shelter underneath it, was used during the war. Saw the old post office, notre dame cathedral from the outside, and walked a bit elsewhere. Guide seemed a little disinterested, but did tell me where I could get nikes from like hers. Went there but far too expensive. Saigon first impressions are that it’s just like any other Asian city, perhaps I’ve been to too many…
