VIETNAM  Population:80Millions-Saigon:5Millions 

EnglishI visited Saigon (Officilally Ho Chi Minh City) and surroundings. Beautiful natural landscape, Vietnam is the next Thailand regarding tourism. The Vietnam war is still very much present in every street as people sell old rifles, war clothes, pictures, Cu chi tunnels visits where Vietcongs were hiding ...There is a museum of "war horrors" as I call it with terrible pictures of civilians injured or dead. Very nice people, I made 2 friends, Binh and Loan. I was seduced and impressed by what i saw in Vietnam.
Another World!

 

FrançaisJ'ai visité Saigon (Officiellement Ho Chi Minh City) et les environs. Superbes paysages, Vietnam cela va devenir le prochain Thaïlande au niveau touristique. La guerre du Vietnam est encore très présent avec des gens vendant des anciens fusils, cartouches, vêtements de guerre, les visites des tunnels Cu Chi ou se cachaient enterres les Vietcongs...Il y a un musée "des horreurs de la guerre" comme je l'ai appelé avec des images terribles de civils et d'enfants blesses ou tues. Les gens sont très chaleureux et je me suis fait 2 amis, Binh et Loan. J'ai été séduit et impressionne par ce que j'ai vu au Vietnam.
Un autre Monde!
