We had a fun day exploring Saigon from a different point of view today. Very thankful for the $8 2 GB data SIM card. 🤡
It was a delight to explore the city as a local and not as a tourist. We did not see a single tourist, westerner or cruise passenger for the entire day 😬
The only time we saw anyone from the west was when we were getting a fruit juice made on this street with some local Vietnamese cherries.
The only hassle today was dealing with the local port authorities… They kept trying to scam us and state that we had to take a taxi to go the 300 meters to the port/gate exit. Ummmm… No… We jumped on a tourist bus and convinced them to take us to the gate and from there we arranged our plans 🤣
