Sad to leave Hoi An today as loved it here and pretty close to being my favourite place so far. Got a taxi up to the airport for our flight to Saigon/HCMC - flight was about $40 with Pacific Airlines and was a good flight. I was particularly pleased that all women got a free gift of Vichy skincare products as its International Women's Day and I haven't allowed myself such luxuries for this trip!
On arrival at HCMC the humidity is what hits you first which isn't great fun when you are carrying a backpack. Got a local bus into the backpacker area and eventually found a cheap hotel (Tan Mai Phai for $8 a night) including a/c - a necessity I think! We are only planning on spending the night here as we came on holiday to southern vietnam a couple of years ago so have 'done' the sights
So are actually leaving Vietnam tomorrow after a great couple of weeks here. Thoroughly recommend it if you are thinking of coming is a great mix of asian and European culture and a lot more tourists than a couple of years ago and more to come I suspect!
