We arrived in Ho Chi Minh City, sometimes known as Saigon. Took a taxi, a nine-hour bus ride and another taxi to get to the hotel zone. Saigon is busy; the first few hotels we tried were full.
Visited War Remnants Museum which has a yard full of captured American military hardware; photos and exhibits describe the American or Vietnam War (depending on your point of view). War is horrible.
Took a look at the Saigon River; it is used for industrial and commercial purposes. Went to the central market, Fine Art Museum, shopping mall and generally tried to avoid getting hit by scooters.
