Here are a few plane views of the city that I was able to shoot before touching down.
Song Sai Gon. Saigon River.
Just before touchdown here.
A few more as well before reaching the Saigon River:
Ho Chi Minh Airport (Tan Son Nhat International Airport):
The airport is not too far away from the city center.
The parents and sisterJ.
Outside of the airport is full of people waiting for their relatives.
SisterJ with all our luggage =). We flew with PAL (Philippine Airlines) and their minimum baggage allowance per person is 30 kilos.
The parents just landed in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. We always get priority when we travel with them, those walking sticks can really do wonders.
If you need a taxi just walk outside the airport and go here. Prices to the city centre range between 140,000 - 180,000 VND. There will be taxi hawkers who will try to give you a special price, say no and speak directly to the taxi chauffeur and say meter please.
My sister and moi.
More soon of Vietnam!
