Vietnam ’16, part 3: Discover Downtown Saigon

Although this post is called downtown Saigon, it actually starts with some pictures of trip to Gò Công, a village roughly 50km south of Saigon – however more than 2 hours to drive by car. Gò Công was the hometown of P’s grand parents and it’s where they are buried. Some relatives are still living there, in a vast farming area. Actually the whole Mekong delta is a vast farming area, almost every spot is used to grow rice or fruit.

This beautiful French villa just got sold for $35m. Let’s hope the owner keeps it in that shape!
