Mekong Delta in the south of Vietnam is close to Saigon and you can reach it from Saigon within 2 hours.
After a short flight from Da Nang to Saigon, we arrived in the south of Vietnam. Saigon is absolutely where the heart of southern Vietnam beats – day and night. All the life during day and night is on the street; people sitting, walking, relaxing, talking, redaing, eating and sleeping.

We arrived at Da Nang, drove down to Hoi An and – guess – rented a motorbike. So we started to drive around towards My Son, close to Hoi An.
We started around 9 o’clock pm with this train ride in Hanoi. So after a couples of Vietnam beer, we fall asleep and woke u quite late, something around 7-8 o’clock. That was actually the longest sleep we had during that journey 🙂

After 22 hours of flying thousands of miles and a stop in Bangkok, we arrived finally early in the morning in lovely Vientiane, the capital of Laos. We checked a guesthouse with tripadvisor; to feel a bit like in Germany, we decided for the Bayern Guesthouse.
