First time arrived, I wasn't struck although I couldn't speak their language because the situation in The international airport there which is called Tan Son Nhat was clean and tidy. The immigration officer also welcome us warmly. I just prepared not so much Dong (Vietnam money)as I have no plan to stay long at first. This is a city to explore on bike or foot. The city was so crowded but clean enough. Districts 1 and 3 are very well kept up and contain many nice restaurants, hotels, museums and many of the attractive tourism. We could take a look at historical French buildings in District 1 that still well taken care although already 50 years. Later from Ho Chi Minh City, traveled to the Cu Chi Tunnel and War Remnant Museum that used to be a war place long time ago. Don't miss to travel with small boat to the Mekong River Delta where you can felt the traditional atmosphere of local inhabitants.
