Southeast Asia Travel…..cont.
Phu My has a huge dock area on a channel off the Song Cai Mep River. We came up the river from the South China Sea. The MS Amsterdam is docked here amidst all the cargo ships and containers. This is the port for Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) which is 2 hours away. About 45 minutes away is the village of Vung Tau with beaches and a Buddhist Temple of note.
Now, if you’ve been following me on this blog, you know what I’ll say next. “Since we’ve been here several times before, we’ll stay on board this time!” But I do have a bunch of photos of both Saigon and Vung Tau taken in 2010, 2014 and 2016!
