Photo Diary: Vietnam

Vietnam will always have a special place in my heart. It all started with my penchant for Miss Saigon. I would always listen to all of its songs whenever I'm bored and I got more curious about this country after studying its history back in high school and college (see, I was really a nerd). Two years ago, I got the chance to visit Vietnam twice on the same period. I was in awe. Saigon is beautiful. It's actually a beautiful mess - motorcyclists who were ready to bend traffic rules, buildings haphazardly built in the central district of the city, and huge sequoias beautifully lined up along the city's narrow streets and public parks.

Okay, I'll just keep this short, Here's my Vietnamese photo diary. Places visited: Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City), and Mui Ne. I am hoping to explore Hanoi, Hue, and Da Nang in the near future.
