Another Asian country that I went to last year was Ho Chi Minh city in Vietnam. I arrived in Hanoi airport and took another flight to Ho Chi Minh for an hour. Stayed for a week, the city reminded me of the old Manila and Binondo. The city is rich in cultural heritage sites, formerly named Saigon. Majority of their transportation is the motorcycle. You should be good in playing “patintero” to be able o cross the street as you’ll be meeting a LOT of motorcycles left and right. You’ll ever see any Starbucks there but they have a lot of coffee shops serving their own Vietnamese coffee. One of their popular food is their Vietnamese noodle soup or Pho. It comes with onions, chili peppers, cilantro, lime, bean sprouts and thai basil as garnishings.

St. Joseph’s Cathedral.
A neo-gothic structure rising from the Old Quarter’s twisting streets was erected by the French in 1886
Garnishing for the Pho
There’s a lot of things to learn about Hanoi. I hope to come back and be able to explore and learn more about this place.
