... as it is a root vegetable, but my favourite part was the mixture of crushed peanuts and sugar. We were given a taste of this because tapioca is what the Vietnamese people living in these tunnels ate when they could not get enough steamed rice. We were also given an opportunity to pay to shoot some guns that were used during the war, but that was an experience we both passed on.

This war was extremely torturous and horrible, with the effects of UXOs and ...

Saigon II

A travel blog entry by daveandjenna

After stopping twice in the first 20 minutes of the bus journey (for about 30 minutes in total) the bus journey improved. We stopped only once more and enjoyed an ice cream at the service station, before rolling into Saigon under the cover of darkness and to some spectacular lightening. Thankfully, the thunderstorm passed us by, but it was a warning of the changing weather in Vietnam. For the first time in a while, our bus dropped us in ...

Chùa Diệu Pháp Temple

This temple was quite a distance away from Ho Chi Minh however it was a very special place to be! It was special because they take in orphaned children who were left on the temple doorstep and look after them.

... than on our 6 hour bus ride to Mu Nei but at least we got to our place.
The following day was spent walking around Mu Nei discovering this cute, windy and quite touristy village famous for it's windsurfing and kite surfing (since we were only staying for a day and a half we never got a chance to give it a try, apparently you need about 10 hours on training before you can even get up with a kite).
Mu Nei is also known for its big sand dunes and of course this ...

... where war was waged until April 30, 1975 when a North Vietnam army tank crashed through the front gate, marking the fall of Saigon and ending the war.

Before going to Vietnam, I knew almost nothing about the Vietnam War, except what I saw in movies and TV shows, which was all from an American perspective. Visiting Vietnam, and particularly the Cu Chi Tunnels and Saigon, was very enlightening and I recommend it to everyone. Even though ...

    Average hotel, noisy street

    The hotel is quite nice, thou a bit expensive for the 32 USD/night. Breakfast is good. Nice and friendly stuff. But the noise outside during the night is unbearable even with the earplugs, so never stay in the room facing the main street, since the simple glass in the windows do not protect from the outside noise at all.
