Mike and I spent a day in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon). I know that's not really long enough to get a feel for the city, but it's just what worked best for our trip. HCMC was a bustling place, and I honestly found it a bit overwhelming. Crossing the street as hundreds of motorcycles and scooters whipped past was no easy feat (Mike enjoyed the challenge immensely!).
We were happy to stumble upon two neat shops during our brief stay:
1. Artbook - a very cool bookstore with a nice selection of art as well. We picked up a photograph and a neat calendar there.
2. L'usine - a hip little shop/restaurant. We had some lasagna there which was a nice break from typical Asian cuisine! :)
