Ho Chi Minh City

reaching Vietnam's largest city by overnight train from Nha Trang

Location: 

Ho Chi Minh City, Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam

Duration: 

Saturday, July 1, 2017

Personal highlights

  1. Ho Chi Minh City: most modern and largest city of Vietnam, yet not the capital
  2. Saigon City: renamed in 1976 after the notorious leader, but the old name survived
  3. Bitexco Financial Tower : overlooking city and Saigon River from the tallest building
  4. Notre-Dame: seeking shelter on heavy rainfall in the Vietnamese version, not in Paris
  5. Journey: reaching my final destination in Vietnam after 3 overnight trains
