A Vlog from a day spent in Saigon, Vietnam. Including getting lost around some authentic Saigon back alleys...

Parts of this video include:
0:04 5pm, Bui Vien street
0:24 Massage ladies waiting for customers
1:45 Motorbike shops, they cater for the many people who do the classic Saigon to Hanoi ride
3:06 Starting a walk through some random poky alleyways, I really enjoy the authentic atmosphere. Some are right out of a movie set...
4:44 Dead end?
6:14 Cross road
8:33 Anyone want to purchase an empty plot?
9:44 Typical Spa massage prices
10:21 Pham Ngu Lao street
10:57 HEM 241 alley, one of the more popular ones with backpackers with many cheap rooms being available
12:37 Cheap room examples
13:01 A talking bird, not something you see everyday. The alleyways are very random
14:00 Men's hair cuts for $3, not a bad deal...
15:51 Spa central, be aware some are bait and switch places. You think you will get a rub down from a slim beauty in a short dress, but the reality is you'll get a 40 year old lady who can't speak English...
16:26 Bui Vien street
16:59 Guy getting seduced by the massage promo ladies
18:18 $0.78 for a beer and $5 for a bed, it's easy to see why many backpackers like this place...
19:07 Montage featuring some Bui Vien massage ladies
19:56 Bui Vien street scenes
21:57 The View Rooftop bar
22:31 Outro


Additional notes:

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.

    Kayos501 4 months ago Thanks for the great video Bkk 112! Visa run? I hope the tropical storm in Thailand didn't affect you too badly. I was just imagining the smells of going down the ally before the massage places. Motorbike, produce, meat (cooked and uncooked), the occasional smell of garbage...Places like that definitely fill the senses. Thanks for another great video and I'll have to look in to the Bitcoin thing to see about how I can support. Thanks!

  • phapnui
    phapnui 3 months ago During the war I swore I'd never go back. But I did and the country has changed so much for the better. When I have to be in the US, I get homesick for Vietnam. I married into a large family and most my family and friends are here. I'm here now for 6 months. Married to a Vietnamese, I get a 5 year visa exemption and can come and go as I please.
