Vibrant Vietnam part deux

Part 2.

Our 4 days in HCMC were absolutely amazing.

It’s hard to do justice to the experience with mere words.. the sights, smells, sounds.. it was a bit overwhelming (mostly in a good way).

The incessant beeping of horns by every motorized vehicle.. the fragrance of street food and coffee (and roadside trash) that seem to emanate from every corner.. in a city steeped with history and vibrant progress!

I love architecture. Especially colonial ones.

This is the HCMC Central Post Office.

And it’s a real working post office, not just a tourist attraction.

There were just so much to see and not enough time. Although I took numerous pictures of old buildings, HCMC’s economic progress can be easily seen in the modern skyscrapers that is popping up everywhere.

Rushing to work? Haven’t had your coffee yet?

Vietnamese Iced Coffee from the back of a bike! Just perfect!
