Ho Chi Minh: Behind the Sound of Pollution (VN Part 1)
Taking your first step into another country will always leave you in awe. Vietnam, however, has left me with an entirely different level of amazement.
In short, Vietnam was jaw-dropping, eye-opening, mind-blowing, heart-pumping, and every other bodily-related adjectives I could think of. Despite being an Asian, Vietnam, a country only 2,659.7 kilometers away, has made me realized that I was mistaken about everything I thought I knew about Asia.
Prior to this trip, I have read about the experiences of other bloggers just so I know what to expect when I am there. It was surprising to come across a few blog posts entitled 'Giving Vietnam Another Chance', and there were just too many negative remarks about the country that I was scheduled to fly to in less than a week's time. In order to make sure that I was able to embrace Vietnam wholeheartedly, I reassured myself that these bloggers were merely unaccustomed to the Asian way of living, in light of where they are coming from (mostly Americans).
So with an eager (and slightly anxious) heart, I have stepped foot in Vietnam for the first time!
This is only the introduction of the trip. There are just too many pictures and experiences to share and they are impossible to be summarized in just one blog post. Stay tuned for more!
ps. Gotta thank my family for planning this amazing trip!
