Day 1 of Trip to Ho Chi Minh City with Nok Air

This is a new kind of trip for me. For the past 18 years I have been blogging exclusively about life and travel in Thailand. Even on Twitter, 100% of my tweets from the past five years have been about Thailand. I never tweet about other countries. But, this all changed when Nok Airlines invited me on a three day media trip to Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. This is a new route for them which started on 1st October. In December, they will start flying from Bangkok to Hanoi. The following photos are from day 1 of our trip which I tweeted live.

    Dear Mr. Richard Barrow;
    Very interesting reading and pictures of Ho Chi Minh. I have been to Thailand a couple of times, and always found it fun, and also a slower pace to most countries in Asia. Also in the North of Thailand the cost of living is very reasonable as you well know. I’ve been invited to visit a friend in Nha Trang and know a little about the city, but if you have been there, could you please write a word or two as to how you would compare it to similar size cities in Thailand; especially as to the cost of living, overall enjoyment, and life in general to Thailand. Thank you kindly again for the first hand information you provide travelers. Your information seems very authoritative, and reliable. My sincere gratitude in advance for your response.
