Our Whirls in Ho Chi Minh City 2016

September 2016

We had a super fun experience going round and round along the streets of Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam (previously known as Saigon) at night!

Saigon was a whole new experience for us with the "millions" of motorbikes speeding by... and with drivers not particularly giving priority to pedestrians. It seemed like they just went ahead acting like we were never around. So, we had to steer away from them, so as not to be hit! I think crossing the streets of Saigon is a great talent in itself!!!

Initially, we said, "We can easily cross the street. We come from Zamboanga City... it couldn't be too different!"

But it was! And that added to the fun in Saigon! 

Here we are... in the middle of a small island in the 6-lane intersection near Alagon Central... in the corner of Saigon Center... in the island as we crossed to Ben Thanh Market... and in the Night Market... as we whirled around to get our video selfies (or groufies!)

Such an exciting adventure for us, just like a superfast merry-go-round! We were laughing and screaming and of course, getting dizzy as we spun around faster and faster!

To top it all, we persuaded the nice lady at the night market, Trang to join in our fun!

Aren't you tempted to do the same!!!
