When we touched down in Ho Chi Minh and straight away as soon as we got out of the airport you could just see a massive buzz about the place high rise buildings and motorbikes everywhere.
Get pretty excited and when we got to the hotel and went straight up to the rooftop bar.
After this we headed down to Bue Vien Walking Street and to be honest it was nice to stroll along without Tuk Tuk drivers on the pest every 2 minutes. It is miles better than Phnom Penh.
When we got there it was mental similar to khao san road in Bangkok but about 3 times longer! Coiled up like a spring and ready to burst we hit the bars, I’ve got to say the brutal hard techno trance is starting to grow on me now haha.
I couldn’t believe it but I actually wasn’t recked or causing any nuisance and a bar refused me entry 😂😂 I thought that was impossible over here they normally would open a place for just you especially if your going to spend a few quid. Just continue my record of being reused access. Thinks it’s Flares doesn’t it 😂
We ended up out til about half 3 then come home and eat some crisps in bed. Remarkably we managed to get back up at 9 for breakfast then went back to bed accidentally woke back up at half 1. After bed we went for dinner and I only wanted a small pulled pork burger but accidentally ordered the special burger with pulled pork n bacon, ended up costing a fortune. Gna have to start scanning Vietnamese food every meal n just having an omelette at breakfast now because I’m worried I’m going to grow out of all my 32 inch waist shorts. Ive got a month in Bali coming up FFS.
Anyway day 2 so far I have managed to go to the gym today 💪 and it is England 🏴 v Belgium 🇧🇪 tonight abit of a waste of time in all fairness but it is the first chance for the team to win a world cup medal since 1966. And we do really need to win to prove we are capable of beating some decent competition.
I have got to say based on first impressions it looks like Nam is going to be best place upto now. Although I am concerned that traffic lights are just optional over here red lights mean nothing to them 🛵🛵🛵
