An oasis of quietness
It has been almost 15 years since I last visited Vietnam and I saw the changes. More traffic in the cities, and in certain areas many more tourists. Vietnam seems to be on everyone's list.
We stuck mostly to the central backbone of Vietnam, visiting the quieter National Parks, - small villages, neat towns, many waterfalls, paddy fields, pagodas, karst mountains, amazing caves, some good and interesting food, sunny weather and mist.
But we begin here in Saigon in the Thien Hau Temple, an oasis a quietness in the chaotic old city.
