Oddly enough,I dreaded this port but to my surprise it ended up being my favorite..but only by chance. I was going to stay on the ship but saw tents selling souvenirs outside and grabbed $40 and went outside. As I was looking at the tents with other guests that decided to stay a bus pulled up. We all looked at each other perplexed..so I asked. It was a free bus into town for shopping. So all of us stragglers hopped on. About a 30 minute drive. It was an average area. So I skipped the shopping to walk to the main intersection and decided to turn around and go back, but multiple motorcycle drivers asked to give tours I said no to all until the last one. He spoke some English and was polite. So I said f@&$ it ,he said $40 perfect that's all I had. I hopped on his new motorcycle and went. It was the best experience I saw way more than all of the excursions combined and then some. He was so cool. I wish I could name everything I saw but I don't have all day😍😍😍

We did a best of tour arranged via the cruise line. It was a circa 1.5 hour drive into ho chi minh. We went to a war museum and then had lunch at a nice hotel with vietnamese dancing and music. The food was ok but nothing amazing. Then we had a couple of hours to have a wander which is what we did...taking in all the atmosphere and energy of the city. It was a bank holiday so wasn't as hectic as usual and I have been before when the roads are absolutely crazy!
