Parts of this video include:
0:04 Video preview
0:44 Leaving Ha My 3 hotel

2:37 Tron Cafe, is this where the movie was born? Or where the cryptocurrency was conceived? NB: The audio cuts here for a bit due to copyright problems with a song called 'The Grid' from Tron Legacy...
4:27 Massage for me at a Vietnamese barbershop. Spoiler alert: it was average and the girl did my head in so much by begging for a tip I took her photo to piss her off...

This video was from a Visa run to Vietnam, where I stayed in the capital city of Saigon for a few days.


Thank you for watching, and subscribe for more videos.

NB: Saigon / Ho Chi Minh City are the same city, the name was changed after the 70s. The locals all call it Saigon so that's what I call it here.

    LongBinh70 4 months ago Gummint paid my tourist visa in 1970. 🤣 I used to have to drive down from Long Binh to the US Embassy (20 miles?) to get my guys passports for covert missions. The jeeps were open, of course, and as a new driver you learned very quickly to keep your watch on your right wrist. If you had it on your left and signaled a turn, the watch would disappear! 🤔

    lx10 4 months ago I was at Vietnam 10 months ago, and OH MY GOD, I missed it so much. The sounds, the smell, the food, the city buzz, everything. It was a such a amazing time. Definitely a place to go back.

  • lx10
    lx10 4 months ago @Thi Lương - Was there in March. Was at Sapa, Hanoi, Ha Long Bay, Da Nang, Hue, Hoi An, Ho Chi Minh and it didn't rain. Lucky me.
  • Thi Lương
    Thi Lương 4 months ago @lx10 u r so lucky. If u come here in the rainy season, it may be an extremely memorable experience in ur life. Maybe u will rent a boat to move :-D kkk
  • lx10
    lx10 4 months ago @Thi Lương - I rented a bike to explore Da Nang and go to Hoi An. With rain, or without rain, Vietnam it is very beautiful.
  • Thi Lương
    Thi Lương 4 months ago lx10 You are still lucky, I was born in Vietnam but have never been to Da Nang Hoi An
  • lx10
    lx10 4 months ago @Thi Lương - What? That's crazy... I loved Hoi An, so beautiful at night, and Da Nang it's a real lovely city, and when I was there, I got a chance to go for a swim at the beach. You should make a effort to go with your family. It's very beautiful. You have the Phap Lam Pagoda, the Marble Mountain, and the new "Golden Bridge". And it's very close to Hoi An, and not very far from Hue.
  • Thi Lương
    Thi Lương 4 months ago lx10 I really want to travel to Hoi An Da Nang, but the problem is the condition or in other words "money". OMG !!! I am working as a barista for a coffee shop, 1 month is 5 million VND, about 250usd. The place I went the farthest was Nha Trang in 2012
  • lx10
    lx10 4 months ago @Thi Lương - Better days will come, trust me. What city do you work?
  • Thi Lương
    Thi Lương 4 months ago lx10 sure, i hope that too. I’m working In Saigon. Distrist 11
  • lx10
    lx10 4 months ago @Thi Lương - I was there. I stay near the Bitexco Tower.
  • Thi Lương
    Thi Lương 4 months ago lx10 oh great! I am living Sai gon but never come to Bitexco 😅
  • lx10
    lx10 4 months ago @Thi Lương - 😲🤣 - I understand, I'm from Lisbon, Portugal, and I never went to some tourist places in my own city, for instance, like the "Torre de Belém".
  • Thi Lương
    Thi Lương 4 months ago lx10 Portugal ?? great great !!! I really love Ronaldo. U r still too lucky 😂. Actually if I had more time I would go to some places near my place. But because my job took most of the time, I didn't have a chance to go somewhere.
  • jay hua
    jay hua 4 months ago @Thi Lương Ummm. And the transportation is not that efficient, say, it took me 7hours from Hochiminh city to Dalat city and 7hours back to Hochiminh for catching the plane. I only had a short stay in Vietnam for 5 days(which was totally a wrong call,to be honest, because I was soooo damn afraid of going to Vietnam, and my family told me i was risking my life. Stupid media spread biased information.) I Flew to Hochiminh city from Nanjing, China to meet a Vietnamese girl who I met online three years ago. The unforgettable trip to Vietnam tremendously changed my concepts about your country, and she also changed my life view. From then I started knowing your country:) Nice people, nice country, we share a very similar culture. Ohhhh i was in district 1, and binh thanh district.
  • lx10
    lx10 4 months ago @jay hua - Like Anthony Bourdain said, “Vietnam, it grabs you and doesn't let you go. Once you love it, you love it forever." (s.08-ep.02 Hanoi) He's the reason I wanted so much to go to Vietnam. Great country.
  • Edward Ohm
    Edward Ohm 3 months ago You're crazy. Move to leave there for your Godsake.
  • jay hua
    jay hua 3 months ago @lx10 Yes, one thing attracts most is that the street view and lifestyle. It's like a time machine bringing me back to my childhood. it's really reminiscent. It's very easy for us to go to Vietnam:))) The whole flight journey only takes 4 hours. I'll go there again after my graduation. See If we can meet in Vietnam. lol.
  • lx10
    lx10 3 months ago @jay hua - Well, it takes me about 14/15 hours flight to go to Vietnam. I'm from Portugal. But yes, some day I will go back.

  • Edmund Singleton
    Edmund Singleton 2 months ago I watched a documentary about The Weather Underground available on Amazon Prime, and throughout, I could not help from wondering, what if the United States, in the spirit of 1776 had supported the efforts of Ho Chi Minh, to throw off the choking yoke of French colonialism, and the many lives that could have been spared, instead of supporting a colonial power and a by gone governance and era that is now on the trash heap of history…
