Saigon is very much alive. Traffic is almost hypnotizing: thousands of scooters weave their way in the streets, like a school of fish.
1) take Uber motor rides. Adrenaline, sightseeing, quick, local and super cheap. You don’t have to negotiate and you don’t even need cash.
4) street food!!!! My favorites were Bahn Xeo and Bahn Cuon.
