Vietnam(Ho Chi Min) & Cambodia(Angkor Wat)

From August 13th to 18th in 2004 I was in Vietnam and Cambodia with my husband.

 

Vietnam(Hochimin)

 We went to Hochimin city in 1995. At that time we went sightseeing so this time we visited other local places. We took a ferryboat which local citizens use to cross to the  other side of the Saigon river. The center of Hochimin city has developed a lot in these 9 years but the parts around the city were still under-developed . We enjoyed shopping and eating too.

Cambodia(Siem Reap)

This is the first time we visited Cambodia.

There are so many excavations in the city. We visited only a few of them.

Cambodian food has a mild taste so I love it.
