Motorbikes own the road (and the sidewalks) in Vietnam. Our hosts took us for a ride on our second night to give us a tour of the city. This was a crazy experience as we learned rather quickly that stop lights, right-of-ways and the right side of the street don’t matter to anyone. Heck, we even saw people driving on the sidewalk when traffic got super crazy.
During our tour of Saigon we got to see the Notre Dame Cathedral (oldest church in Vietnam), Saigon river, the tallest building in the city, the oldest post office in the city, the US and French embassy, the children’s hospital, very famous restaurants, a few different markets, Independent Palace, and districts 1, 2, and 3.
