... at, but we wanted to see and learn more about the Vietnam war. The subtle differences from the rest of Vietnam were busier streets, guys who slept on their motorbikes parked directly on the streets and the nightlife which encompassed people sitting on a thin pillow on the sidewalks to enjoy drinks with friends. With only two days in the area we spent one full day learning more about the Vietnam war. We took a tour up to Cu Chi tunnels where the Vietcong developed and underground world ...
... the river and saw a beautiful sunset the first day. The next day we went on a sunset cruise and when we got on the boat, we thought we'd see no sunset at all since the sun was behind clouds. As it turned out, we did get to see a bit of a sunset - more than we thought we would. What Garyn and I will both remember most from the sunset boat trip was the family that ran the boat. Midway through the trip, they stopped the boat and gave people ...
... hot so we didn't stay out too long, but it was a fun day. That evening, we took a sunset boat ride on a wooden catamarn. There were about 15 or 20 people on board. The trip was 2 and a half hours and was $5 each, including a free beer! After the sunset cruise we went to a local restauarnt for some food and then headed home to pack for our trip the next day.

Our hotel manager came to find us and pointed to a young Parisian couple who were willing to share a private boat, meaning we'd only pay $12 instead of $28 and we'd get to pick the times etc. Thanks Mr manager.

We stayed at Olly's on the recommendation from a friend. We found beautiful stilted bungalows for an amazing low price. The WIFI was reliable, the food excellent and the blue's music in the evening over candlelight and fairy lights topped it all off along the riverfront. Would have loved to stay longer :)
