Sweaty and confused in Saigon
This time last year I was stumbling jetlagged and bleary-eyed around the frantic streets of Ho Chi Minh city.
Whilst I love to walk in a city, I’ll never forget the death-defying road crossings through motorbike stampedes to get from the hotel near Tao Dan Park to the highest view point in town, the Bitexco Financial Tower.
I opted for the most expensive coffee in town so that I could sketch that great view of the Saigon River through the lazy afternoon smog.

Thanks for sharing your story and watercolors. Absolutely beautiful. I had the chance to visit Vietnam over Thanksgiving and took an epic ride on the backseat of a motorbike through the streets of Saigon. I included a link to the video as I suspect you’ll recognize a few of places. Cheers!
Many thanks Paul. Superb video! Brings back some great memories.
