Visiting Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City)

March 15, 2017 Paul Groves

Day 62 of 111. Phu My, Vietnam

Ron left the ship for a three-day overland excursion to visit Angkor Wat in Cambodia. The first day, however, was spent in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon). Ron visited the Independence Hall (formerly the Presidential Palace). The tanks were the first to enter its grounds in April 1975 effectively ending the Vietnamese War. Tank 843 is a Russian tank; Tank 390 is Chinese. There was also a visit to the History Museum.
