Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon).
With over 7 million people, some 3 million motorbikes, fantastic buildings, great food and extraordinary history - Saigon is an experience of its own.

Cao Dai Temple.
An awe-inspiring building, The Tây Ninh Holy See, is the seat of Caodaiism belief.

Saigon Central Post Office.
Designed by Gustave Eiffel (of Eiffel Tower fame), this is a beautiful and photogenic building - both inside and out. This is one of many excellent buildings we will visit and photograph.
 

Can Tho City.
In the heart of, and capital of the Mekong Delta - this is our base for two nights in this area of the Delta. It is a joy just to wander the riverside area by day and also by nightl, when the area comes alive with street vendors and locals.

Vinh Long and Ben Tre.
Away from the main tourist locations, life here is pretty much unchanged over hundreds of years. We cruise the tributaries and canals of the Delta system.

Food glorious food !
