Sài Gòn (Ho-Chi-Minh-City)

Restaurant recommendation in Ho-Chi-Minh-City
After our relaxing days in Mũi Né we set out to go to Sài Gòn by bus. The official name of Vietnam’s largest city, which was the capital of the Republic of Vietnam until 1975, is Ho-Chi-Minh-City (HCMC).

The imperial city of Huế

Thien Mu Pagoda
After a 12-hour bus ride we arrived more or less rested in Huế. The “soft sleeper” bus from Hanoi to Huế (about 15 dollars) is, compared to the train (about 35 dollars), for smaller people in any case the much cheaper alternative.
