Ho Chi Minh City is a huge city with millions of residents, but there are still parks with towering old-growth trees. This makes the city different from many other cities in Asia, and I love it.
I’ve been in Vietnam for almost a year already (holy cow, how did time go by so fast?), and I’m looking for my next assignment. Wherever I go, it will be amazing and wonderful, but it’s hard to imagine a city as livable as Ho Chi Minh City.
