well, we've short changed saigon a bit by only staying here two days (we're starting to run out of time on this trip) but it's still been a pretty cool city.

we did a very basic and quick tour our first day here checking out things like the reunification palace, the ho chi minh city museum, the fine art museum, and the war remenants museum. one of my favorite points was the notre dame cathedral. we didn't go inside because there was what looked to be a funeral going on, but looking in from outside, i did see that jesus had a neon halo, which is pretty funny.
aside from that, saigon has a pretty big internation city feel that hanoi didn't have. the streets are bigger, the hotels are bigger and fancier. there are more international resturants. etc.
