Vietnam, Saigon/HoChiMinh City Guide (B): Vietnam Diaries: Days 2–5 Discovering Saigon

Discovering Saigon was the pick of the day. Why not, it was the first full day in this chaotic city and there were lots to learn and discover. For instance, where is the best places to eat? Best places to shop and day tours to discover? The list goes on, and no matter how much time you spend in this city, you are never going to get the full grasp of Saigon.
