Upon arriving in the southerly city of Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) we checked into our Hotel and were immediately thrown into the bedlam of the city streets by taking a stroll (well more like a fast paced walk while trying to avoid cars speeding at you from every direction) to the Phở 2000 restaurant.… Continue reading The Lotus Boutique Hotel, Pho 2000, and Chill Sky Bar
