Image 3 context, I am travelling Vietnam with a friend and the cutest Vietnamese Child kept coming to our table intigued with the food we ordered.
We arrived at our Hostel in Ho Chi Minh City two hours early, and the rain began to fall! We had already mentioned we wanted to have mani/pedis so we headed to 'Ri-o Nail & More'. I couldn't recommend them more. When we went in, the women were incredibly excited. I had my nails painted as well as massages and other treatments, and each of us had two women working on us. One on the hands and arms and one on the feet and legs. After a lengthy flight, we were exhausted and dozed off and on for two hours.

In comparison to Hanoi, the city has a much heavier traffic flow so if you start to cross the roads, DO NOT STOP. Simply keep moving, and the traffic will flow around you.
