the land mines of vietnam!


at 7 am after having breakfast in sihanokville, cambodia, we prepared our bags to leave to prepare our last destination, in saigon city, vietnam     vietnam country code is +84IMG_0081~1

the trip to vietnam from phnom penh took around 7 hours which we stop over after 2 hours to eat something, how do you say ho chi minh? its hard to pronounce right! I had a lunch for 2 & and my friend had steak for 8000 riel then we had to go to immigration border of cambodia to vietnam, i wasn’t not happy at all because i have to carry all along my back pack every time and my documents took time to scan in the immigration.

if you are holding a philippine passport of philippines, you don’t need a visa to vietnam, you can stay there max of 21 days. correct me if i am mistaken!at 3 15 pm, while we are in the bus couple of minutes before arriving at the immigration there are lot of motorbikes I’ve seen in vietnam, and my mind is taking up dinner which is far from reality as of this time, its been an early for my stomach! we arrive in ho chi minh, the capital city of vietnam, it was traffic. it made many years before, it was saigon.
